Miranda Lambert Breaks Down During An Emotional Performance Of “The House That Built Me”

Miranda Lambert broke down on stage Saturday night while performing at Cheyenne Frontier Days in Wyoming as she sang The House That Built Me, a song that was given to her by Blake Shelton. Her emotional performance came just two days prior to the announcement that her and Blake Shelton were divorcing.

Miranda first heard The House That Built Me when it was sent to then-fiance Blake Shelton who insisted she record the song herself after he saw her emotional reaction to it, she told The Boston Globe in an interview in 2010.

“It was beautiful,” Lambert said. “I mean, I just started bawling from the second I heard it. He was like, ‘If you have a reaction to this song like that, then you need to cut it.’”

The House That Built Me went on to be Lambert’s first #1 single on Billboard Hot Country Song chart, a position that it held for four straight weeks in a row. The single also earned Lambert the most desirable Grammy Award and multiple CMA and ACM awards.

Half way through her performance on Saturday of the song that holds so much meaning for her, Lambert told the Cheyenne audience…

“The last thing I want to do is cry in front of 19,000 people.” She then asked the crowd to help her finish singing the song.
