Miranda Lambert with Jon Randall and Jack Ingram have been collaborating together for many years. Miranda and Jon came together with friend and fellow tunesmith Jon Randall and the Texas natives hit the small West Texas town of Marfa to create The Marfa Tapes. Their project the Marfa tapes created a stripped down set of classic country songs. The trio performed several of these songs for Austin City Limits.
Atop their stools and under their cowboy hats, the trio shifted to waltz time and performed “Am I Right or Amarillo,” a Randall-led tune that sounds like a honky-tonk classic you haven’t heard in ages. “We’re so happy to be the first show back at ACL,” noted Lambert from the stage. “It’s a dream to be here. Thank you for enjoying the campfire – we hope you laugh a little, cry a little and drink a lot!”, Miranda Lambert stated.
Enjoy watching the performance of three traditional country music songs below.

Randall and the trio then knocked out the bluesy riff for “Geraldene,” a snarky shot across the bow of a would-be predator.

After sharing some of the twenty years of history the three friends have shared, Lambert introduced the lovely single “In His Arms,” written, she said, while staring into the Marfa sunset.
