ABC News RadioMiranda Lambert played for a few hundred lucky fans at Nashville's Exit/In Tuesday night. She announced the free show on Instagram just hours before it began at 8 p.m local time. The performance gave Miranda and her band a chance to run through their Certified Platinum tour set list in front of a group of fans before the trek launches Thursday.
While the show featured Miranda's biggest hits, including "White Liar," "Mama's Broken Heart," "Automatic" and her new single, "Little Red Wagon," she also threw in a few covers. RaeLynn and Gwen Sebastian joined Miranda for a trio performance of The Dixie Chicks' "Cowboy Take Me Away," and Miranda and Gwen closed the show with a duet on "Girl Crush" by Little Big Town, which Miranda says is her favorite band.

Miranda was very happy to perform in the small club. She told the crowd, "I'm glad to be here with no video, no fuss, no frills. Just us and the music."
Halfway through the show, security tackled a man trying to rush the stage as Miranda finished up her performance of "Smokin' and Drinkin'." The incident only added to the rowdy vibe of the evening for Miranda. She said, "I feel so at home, people. This is where I started."
Miranda rounded out the set performing sultry covers of ZZ Top's "Tush," "Mississippi Queen" by Mountain and Wilson Pickett's "In the Midnight Hour." She also gave each member of the band a chance to perform a cover song, and their choices ranged from the Beatles' "Come Together" and George Thorogood's "Bad to the Bone" to "Zombie" by The Cranberries and "Season of the Witch" by Donovan.
Miranda Lambert begins her Certified Platinum tour Thursday in Evansville, IN with special guests Justin Moore and RaeLynn.
