Before Robin started her news, Natalie Maines came back in to chat and a caller requested that she sing the version of "When I See Beth Smiling" live in-studio.
Natalie needed a moment to prepare, so she and Fred went out into the green room to rehearse and relearn the song's chords and lyrics. After about 10 minutes, the pair returned and stunned the crew with a touching version of Lonnie's near-instant classic.
Howard laughed: "Wow! You really love Beth!"
