Miranda Lambert Chokes Up After Seeing Soldier’s Sign in Crowd

If you’ve ever cried during a Miranda Lambert song, you’re not alone.

The popular country singer has been drawing large crowds to stops on her Keeper of The Flame tour. They’re emotional experiences but it was the country singer who was moved to tears after seeing a soldier’s sign in the audience of a show on August 19.

It was during a performance of “The House That Built Me,” that Lambert saw the soldier’s message. “3 Combat Tours and your voice is the last thing I listened to every night,” his sign read.

Lambert approached the soldier and held his sign up for the Hartford, Conn. audience to see. Fighting back tears, she braved her way through the song and thanked the veteran.

“Second verse, I gotta get a drink. Y’all, I gotta do it,” she said before asking the audience for help finishing the song, and wiping more tears from her eyes. Lambert’s audience was happy to lend their voices.

The Keeper of The Flame Tour concludes Sept. 10, but there’s no doubt country music will continue to support and comfort our service members and veterans. Here are some of our favorite country music moments:
