They also sang Lambert’s song ‘Kerosene’ in Nashville. Miranda Lambert sang ‘Sk8er Boi’ with Avril Lavigne at her Nashville event this weekend; see the performance here. The concert on Friday (June 9) took place at CMA Fest, a festival hosted by The Country Music Association, which also hosts the CMA Awards. It was held at Nissan Stadium in Nashville. During a brief seven-song set, Lambert was joined by Leon Bridges and Elle King before welcoming her third and final guest, Avril Lavigne. First, the pair sang Lambert’s classic “Kerosene” before moving on to “Sk8er Boi.” Both performances are captured on video below.
Lavigne released a new joint single with Yungblud called ‘I’m A Mess’ late last year. She signed to Travis Barker of Blink-182’s label DTA Records and released her latest solo album ‘Love Sux’ in February 2022. “From the ‘Sk8r Boi’ referencing ‘Bois Lie’ to the snarling ‘Bite Me,’ Love Sux’ is an unapologetic blast of self-empowerment,” NME noted in a three-star review. ‘Love Sux’ dealt with bad relationships and the thrill of a first kiss, but her 2019 album ‘Head Above The Water’ was a cathartic, emotional pop-facing purging. ‘Kiss Me Like The World Is Ending’ is a joyful, frantic hymn, while the title track is brimming with attitude. “‘Avalanche’ finds Lavigne, now 37, just as perplexed as she was on her 2002 breakout track ‘Complicated’ (“I wish my life came with directions,” she laments on the new song), but with a delicious, synth-driven breakdown, she’s far more confident here.”
