Miranda Lambert performs 'To Learn Her' at the 2017 CMAs

Miranda Lambert delivered the throwback performance of the night at the 51st Country Music Association awards on Wednesday (Nov. 8).

She played The Weight of These Wings cut "To Learn Her," wearing a dark blue dress and gigantic earrings, and singing into an old-school stand-up mic. The performance of the ballad leaned heavily on the song's lovely harmonies and aching slide guitar.

Miranda Lambert is a five-time nominee on the night. Earlier in the night, she lost in the single of the year and song of the year categories (for "Tin Man"), and album of the year (The Weight of These Wings), but is still up for music video of the year ("Vice"), and the coveted Entertainer of the Year honors.
