Miranda Lambert Offered a Curated Playlist of Fight Songs After Breaking Up Tussle During Texas Show: ‘Give ‘Em Hell!’

Miranda Lambert had to take a break during a show at Momentum Bank Ballpark in Midland, TX over the weekend when two female fans started scrapping during a performance of her ballad “Tin Man.” In a TikTok of the incident, Lambert is performing the song solo acoustic when she stops to ask if everyone is okay, fearing a fan had passed out in the crowd.


“Are you good? Are y’all fightin’?,” she asked the women at the show on Saturday (June 29). “During this song? Because I will come down there and you don’t want that today. We’re not doin’ that today.” The wrangle took place during a performance of the touching song from Lambert’s 2016 album The Weight of These Wings, in which Lambert tells the Wizard of Oz‘s heart-deficient Tin Man that he’s lucky he can’t ever fall in love and have his ticker blasted to a million little pieces.

In an Instagram post on Tuesday (July 2), Lambert clarified that she has no problem with her fans getting into it during her concert, but if they don’t mind, she would prefer they just pick some different songs to scrap to. “If you want to fight at my shows, I’m all about it. Give ’em hell,” Lambert said in the clip. “I’ve got five songs for you.”

The singer then suggested a handful of other songs from her catalog that might be better options for a hoe down throw down. Among the tracks she offered up: “Fastest Girl in Town,” “Kerosene,” “Gunpowder and Lead,” “Little Red Wagon” and her recent single, “Wrangle.”

She also explained her rationale, adding, “Don’t do it during ‘Tin Man.’ That’s not the time,” she said in the video in which she rocked a white cowboy hat, western shirt and a jewelry box-full of turquoise rings and bracelets. “I know you can hear the s–t talking because it’s a ballad. But that’s not the time. So pick your times. You’ve got five songs. Look at the set list and choose wisely.”

Fans had some ideas as well in the comments, with recommendations including: “Mama’s Broken Heart,” “If I Was a Cowboy,” “Tequila Does” and “The House That Built Me.”
