Lambert played an impressive 20 song set, kicking it right off with a John Prine cover of “That’s The Way That The World Goes ‘Round” before kicking things into high gear with her massive hit “Kerosene”. From there fans were all signing and dancing along in the crowd to her hit after hit set list.

Lambert has a massive following, with a large majority of her fan base being women. She writes songs that speak directly to your heart. This was especially noticeable during songs like “Gunpowder & Lead”, “Mama’s Broken Heart”, and “Pink Sunglasses” as you could just hear the room singing every note back at her, and how to floor broke into groups of women dancing around, having the time of their life.

Towards the end of her set, Lambert picked up an acoustic guitar and told us a story of a Tin Man, and touched on how shitty 2015 was for her. Overall, she did not get very personal with us or tell many stories- just kept it strictly business. Either way, she is an icon in the country world, and Pennsylvania was just happy to be a part of it that night.
