Check out Miranda Lambert's emotional cover of U2's 1987 hit “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” right here!

During her headlining Faster Horses Festival stint in Michigan over the weekend, country singer-songwriter Miranda Lambert ended her time on stage with a cover of Irish rock band U2’s “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.”

As expected, Lambert totally made the tune her own and even invited her backup singers to take their own turn with the lyrics solo. Of course, the crowd couldn’t resist joining in when the Texan turned the microphone over to the eager audience.

Enjoy the moment below!

You never quite know what Miranda has up her fringed sleeve and that’s why she’s so great to catch performing live.

If this song selection seems random, it’s not. The country music hit-maker attended the band’s June 16th concert in Louisville, Kentucky. “This changed my life,” Lambert tweeted afterward, along with a photo from the show. “And my way of thinking. About music & art. About drive & heart. Thank you @U2. I’ll never be the same.”

U2 released “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” in May 1987 as the second single from their album The Joshua Tree. The popular track has become one of the group’s most well-known songs and has been performed on many of their concert tours. Many music critics and publications have ranked “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” among the greatest tracks in music history, including Rolling Stone which ranked the song at #93 of its list of “The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.”

“I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” Lyrics

I have climbed the highest mountains
I have run through the fields
Only to be with you
Only to be with you

I have run I have crawled
I have scaled these city walls
These city walls
Only to be with you
But I still haven’t found
What I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found
What I’m looking for

I have kissed honey lips
Felt the healing in the fingertips
It burned like fire
This burning desire
I have spoke with the tongue of angels
I have held the hand of a devil
It was one empty night
I was cold as a stone
But I still haven’t found
What I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found
What I’m looking for

I believe when the Kingdom comes
Then all the colors will bleed into one
Bleed into one
But yes I’m still running.
You broke the bonds
You loosened the chains
You carried the cross
Of my shame
Of my shame
You know I believed it
But I still haven’t found
What I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found
What I’m looking for

But I still haven’t found
What I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found
What I’m looking for
