Miranda Lambert's toned down and raw performance of "Tin Man" was one of the best moments of the 2017 ACM Awards. Check it out!

Country music superstar Miranda Lambert’s 2017 ACM Awards performance of “Tin Man” on April 2nd was just plain incredible and provided one of the night’s biggest standout moments. Good news for those who’d like to enjoy it again and again, Miranda Lambert just shared the official footage through her official YouTube channel.

Relive the emotional moment once more below!

Just days before the event, the talented Texan decided to scrap performing her lighthearted song “We Should Be Friends” in favor of her emotionally-charged tune “Tin Man.” Lambert’s gutsy move really paid off and her somber performance stood out against the night’s star-studded energetic buzz. It’s no wonder the songbird walked away with the ‘Female Vocalist of the Year’ award along with ‘Album of the Year’ for her double album The Weight of These Wings.

The touching tune, written by Lambert along with Jon Randall and Jack Ingram on her ‘magical front porch,’ is also a tribute to Miranda’s favorite Kenny Chesney song also titled “Tin Man.”

“This song sort of wrote itself,” the singer-songwriter shared with the Tennessean. “I was a little worried at first about writing another song like that but I told Kenny … I felt the same emotion I feel when I hear that song. I was feeling it myself and the other two co-writers were feeling it as well. It comes from the same place and I guess it inspired it.”

Fans can catch Lambert performing at the Bayou Country Superfest on May 27th, Faster Horses in New York on July 22nd and a pair of shows with Wade Bowen and Randy Rogers at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre August 8th and 9th.

“Tin Man” Lyrics

Hey there Mr. Tin Man
You don’t know how lucky you are
You shouldn’t spend your whole life wishin’
For something bound to fall apart
Every time you’re feeling empty
Better thank you lucky stars
If you ever felt one breaking
You’d never want a heart

Hey there Mr. Tin Man
You don’t know how lucky you are
I’ve been on the road that you’re on
It didn’t get me very far
You ain’t missing nothing
‘Cause love is so damn hard
Take it from me darling
You don’t want a heart

Hey there Mr. Tin Man
I’m glad we talked this out
You can take mine if you want it
It’s in pieces now
By the way there Mr. Tin Man
If you don’t mind the scars
You give me your armor
And you can have my heart
