UPDATE: Gaga uploaded the "Million Reasons" performance with Hillary Lindsey onto YouTube:
Lady Gaga's first dive bar show kicked off Thursday night in Nashville.
Mother Monster is inviting fans to experience all the colorful "raw Americana" facets of her forthcoming album Joanne by performing three shows at dive bars across the U.S., the first of which took place tonight (Oct. 5) and live streamed via Bud Light's Facebook page.
Before the intimate concert, Gaga showed up outside and hyped up the eager crowd waiting behind barricades. As she made her way into the low-lit bar, Gaga meant business. She performed a handful of new songs off the forthcoming album, including "Sinner's Prayer," "A-Yo," "Million Reasons" and the lead single "Perfect Illusion."

Joanne is also now available for pre-order.
"Which is why I love this dive bar tour so much, because I get to go perform these songs and really look my fans in the eyes when I’m singing to them and really try to have a more natural human experience," Gaga said last weekend.
"This record was about me trying to understand my father, and his grief. It's also a record about me trying to understand myself and wondering where I'm going next in life. Because truly, the thing that I'm searching for the most is to feel connected to humanity, to feel connected as a person. So Joanne is like, you know, Lady Gaga if you erase all the fame."
