Jason Aldean and Miranda Lambert shocks fans with their duet

On Friday night (October 14), Jason performed at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on his Rock N’ Roll Cowboy Tour. He teased the audience with his special guest appearance.

Brandon Kinney, Jeff Middleton, and Josh Thompson co-wrote the song, which was released on May 2018. It’s also the second single from Jason’s eighth album, Rearview Town.

Longtime friends and supporters

Miranda Lambert’s appearance came as a shock to fans. They thought she would’ve strayed from him since she’s a fierce supporter of LGBTQ rights. However, the two are longtime friends and supporters of each other’s music. Jason has always been vocal about being a fan of Miranda’s songwriting and vocal talent.

“I’ve always been a fan of her voice, and I’ve always said if I was a female singer that’s the kind of stuff I would do,” Jason told Triple M Magzine. “She’s a rocker, but can also be like really country. Really well-rounded.”

When he shared the song with Miranda, she jumped on it immediately. Jason loves how well their voices blend together. Before their collaboration on “Drowns The Whiskey,” the two worked on the song “Grown Woman” from his 2007 album, Relentless. Jason and Miranda Lambert also toured together at the start of their careers.

Miranda Lambert fans react to Jason Aldean’s concert

Miranda Lambert has sent her support to the LGBTQ community several times. In 2021, she spoke to GLAAD about her brother Luke, who is gay. She shared that it’s important for someone of her fame and platform to support social issues. Both her 2013 single “All Kinds of Kinds” and 2021 song “Y’All Means All” also support the community.

Miranda Lambert fans took to Twitter to react to Jason Aldean’s concert. Some are disappointed in the singer for supporting him even though the two are good friends.

“Today, I’d ask Miranda Lambert how she reconciles her support for the LGBTQ+ community with her choice to appear on stage with Jason Aldean — y’all’s Artist of the Decade, btw — on a night he got his entire audience to boo Maren Morris,” one fan wrote.
