With the ACM Awards right around the corner, let’s take a look back at one of the most memorable ACM moments in recent history.

Miranda Lambert’s shade at Blake Shelton.

Miranda blew the roof off, performing a medley of hits including “Kerosene,” “Gunpowder and Lead,” and a few more classics, but the moment that left everybody’s jaw hanging open was when she changed the lyrics of “Little Red Wagon” from “I live in Oklahoma” to a rather emphatic:

“I got the hell out of Oklahoma.”

ZING.

I was an obvious dig at her ex-husband and Oklahoma native Blake Shelton, but let’s be honest… as petty as it may be, we all were BEGGING for the camera to show Blake’s face in that moment.

And granted, she had been performing the song with the lyric change for quite some time at this point, but never with Blake in the same room. Just let us see his reaction.

At the end of the day though, it makes sense to change the lyrics to something else. After all, she doesn’t live in Oklahoma anymore. But still, it feels like she put a little something extra behind it with Blake in the room.

And we love her for it.

Of course, it’s not all bad blood.

Miranda recently discussed her song “Over You,” which she wrote with Blake about his late brother. She called the song a really special moment and added that she was “glad” they had that together:

“It was really a special moment and I’m so glad we shared that song and that it helped his family heal, to have that together.”
