Watch Lady Gaga Perform New Song "Million Reasons" at a Nashville Dive Bar
There are a million reasons to love Lady Gaga's latest single. The singer debuted "Million Reasons," the latest track off of her forthcoming album, Joanne, on the first leg of her Bud Light dive bar mini-tour in Nashville, Tenn., Wednesday night, and it's about as heartfelt as anything we've heard out of the pop phenom.
The surprise performance was streamed live on Gaga's Facebook page and has already amassed more than 1.3 million views. After nearly 25 minutes of leadup, the set begins when Gaga rolls up to the bar—in an SUV with a license plate that reads "Joanne," no less—carrying her guitar and wearing daisy dukes, a pink cowboy hat, and a sequin-encrusted power shoulder jacket.
After making her way through the assembled crowd outside, the 30-year-old songstress weaves through the crowds inside to a small stage where her band, and a single stool, are waiting for her. She performs two songs off the album, "Sinner's Prayer," and "A-Yo," before launching into her next single, "Million Reasons" (around the 32-minute mark). Gaga even brings up one of the song's co-producers, Hillary Lindsey, a Nashville native, on stage to perform it with her.
"All these men—my dad, my boyfriends, all the men in my life—they give me a million reasons, but I just need one good one to stick around," she says before beginning the emotional ballad.

"You're giving me a million reasons to let you go / You're giving me a million reasons to quit the show / You're giving me a million reasons / Give me a million reasons / Giving me a million reasons / About a million reasons," she sings.
"Million Reasons" follows "Perfect Illusion," which dropped in early September and was Gaga's first single off of Joanne (her fifth solo album).
"My first performances were in dive bars in New York City and around the country, so working with Bud Light to go back to my roots to perform songs from my new album Joanne is such an exciting way to connect with my fans and share this music with them for the first time," Gaga said in a statement announcing the dive bar tour. The tour will make two more stops at currently undisclosed locations on Oct. 20 and Oct. 27.
