There are very few songs that capture me right from the first lyric to the very end. There are even less that make me cry. This pick is one of the few that did both the very first time I heard it. Sometimes, in certain moods, this song can still make me cry. So many of us can relate to Miranda Lambert’s “The House That Built Me” and I hope that you find this version as touching as we do. There’s a little ranch just outside of Carson City, Nevada that gets brought to life for me whenever this song plays. That ranch and the house on that land truly had a huge impact on who I am today.
Here is (another) acoustic version from her performance on ABC News a while back. CMA Fest Live Performance Countdown Day 2 presents Miranda Lambert.
