The country superstar performed a stripped down rendition of the popular track from what appeared to be her house on her couch.
“I love ‘Bluebird.’ It’s a song like I’ve never written before and I’m so proud to be a part of it,” the superstar previously shared in a press release about the song. “Since I wrote it, I’ve been seeing bluebirds everywhere. The bluebirds had always been there – I live on a farm – but I never saw them like I see them now. It reminds me to open my eyes to what’s around me. Now, seeing a bluebird sitting on a branch means so much more to me. I see a little piece of hope there, sitting with wings, and it’s a reminder. I think this is one of those songs where every person takes what they need to from it.”
