CMT Music Awards nominee Miranda Lambert wows with campfire performance of ‘Tequila Does,’ honors Texas roots


Miranda Lambert has taken the stage at the 2021 CMT Music Awards.

The 37-year-old singer-songwriter was introduced by “Girls5Eva” star Busy Philipps, who encouraged fans to enjoy the number, which also featured Jon Randall and Jack Ingram.

The trio performed Lambert’s hit “Tequila Does” at an outdoor setting while sitting around a campfire.

For the number, the Texas-native donned a pair of dark pants, a yellow top, a beige fringed jacket and a dark red brimmed hat.

The gentlemen strummed on their guitars and provided backing vocals for the song.

“Usually every couple of years, when it’s time to write, we’ll disappear and go to a pasture somewhere, and stay for three days and have a fire and just write songs,” Lambert explained in a video package about the song. “A lot of them end up being about Texas, because you’ve got three Texans out there. We wrote ’Tin Man’ together, so we shared that really special moment together. So after that, writing something like ’Tequila Does,’ was kind of like, ’Let’s write a fun one. Let’s write a fun Texas honky tonk song.'”
