When I saw Danica Patrick’s tweet yesterday (Aug. 21) saying,
“Had a blast with @Miranda_Lambert and the Pistol Annies last night! #gonecountry,” I’d just assumed she’d gone to the show

joined Lambert onstage, and together they performed Roger
Miller‘s 1965 classic hit “King of the Road.” It looks like the NASCAR
spitfire just did some dancing while the Texas spitfire did the singing, and the Pistol
Annies did the harmonies. But right after the line about being a man of means by no means, Lambert said to the crowd,
“Let’s say ‘queen’ this time for her, y’all.” Which they did, making the last song of the night “Queen of the Road.” Patrick
held hands with the Annies when they took their final bow at the concert’s finish line.
