Country music star Miranda Lambert's 2019 ACM Awards solo performance still has people talking. Yeah, she went there with "Little Red Wagon"...

Country music superstar Miranda Lambert’s 2019 ACM Awards performance was definitely one of the strongest and most noteworthy of the night. The singer-songwriter rocked out with her hits “Kerosene,” “Gunpowder and Lead,” “Mama’s Broken Heart,” “White Liar,” and ended the medley with “Little Red Wagon.” Her time on stage took a fiery turn when the Texan stuck to her revised “Little Red Wagon” lyrics. Lambert has been performing the line “I live in Oklahoma” as “I got the hell out of Oklahoma” in concert since her July 2015 divorce from Blake Shelton— she’s just never done it in front of her ex-husband at a big country music event before.

To make matters more interesting, Blake’s girlfriend Gwen Stefani and Miranda’s new husband Brendan McLoughlin were also at the 2019 ACM Awards. The camera didn’t pan over to catch any reactions, but Blake had a giant souvenir cup of beer on hand to handle the burn…

It’s interesting that Lambert chose to perform “Little Red Wagon” since it’s so linked to her marriage to Shelton. Remember the huge ‘Mrs. Shelton’ belt she donned for the music video? What a lot of people don’t realize is that “Little Red Wagon” is a cover of Audra Mae’s original song and Lambert cut it for her fifth studio album, Platinum. 

Watch the official “Little Red Wagon” music video below— which was released just a few months before the divorce!

“Little Red Wagon” Lyrics

You only love me for my big sun glasses
And my Tony Lomas
And my Dodge Dart classic
You said “I’ll be Johhny and you be June
And I’ll ride with you to the moon”
But guess what?
You can’t ride in my little red wagon
The front seat’s broken and the axel’s dragin’
You can’t step to this backyard swagger
You know it ain’t my fault when I’m walkin’ jaws droppin’ like
Ooh, ah, ooh, ah
Oh, heaven help me
I’ve been sewing wildflower seeds
And chasing tumble weeds
But that’s just who I be
And you’re just trying to slow this rolling stone
But I’m on to you baby
So guess what?
You can’t ride in my little red wagon
The front seat’s broken and the axel’s dragin’
No you can’t step to this backyard swagger
You know it ain’t my fault when I’m walkin’ jaws droppin’ like
Ooh, ah, ooh, ah
Oh, you only love me for my big sun glasses
And my Tony Lomas
I live in Oklahoma
And I’ve got long, blonde hair
And I play guitar, and I go on the road
And I do all the shit you wanna do
And my dog does tricks
And I ain’t about drama, ya’ll
I love my apron
But I ain’t your mama!
So guess what?
You can’t ride in my little red wagon
The front seat’s broken and the axel’s dragin’
No you can’t step to this backyard swagger
You know it ain’t my fault when I’m walkin’ jaws droppin’ like
Ooh, ahh, ooh, ahh, ooh yeah, ooh ha

Miranda Lambert’s 2019 ACM Awards appearance will be talked about for a long time…
