Miranda Breaks Down Onstage in New Orleans

“I appreciate you rebuilding your community and coming back stronger than ever,” she tells fans.

Miranda Lambert started singing "The House That Built Me" to a rowdy crowd in New Orleans Saturday night (June 23) when she suddenly stopped, the local newspaper reports.

“I’m sorry, y’all, but I wanted to say something,” she said. “I went out to Walgreens today, and I saw some houses that still had boards on the windows, and . . . I live in Tornado Alley, in Oklahoma, and I know how disaster can affect a community.

‘I just wanted you to know that I’ve prayed for you guys, and everything you went through, and that I appreciate you rebuilding your community and coming back stronger than ever.”

Miranda then wept through parts of the rest of the song as the crowd sang for her, the newspaper reports.

It was a powerful moment that Miranda broke through with trademark sass and humor.

"Seriously, y’all,” she told the crowd, “I’m gonna have to kick your asses if you tell anyone I was crying up here.”
