by Emily Morgan

On Twitter, Miranda Lambert perfectly put into words how many of us are feeling about 2020 coming to an end.

“Cheers to finally turning the page to 2021.”

On Thursday, the country singer shone a bright light on what has been a pretty rough year for many Americans. She took to Twitter to express her gratitude for fans enjoying her song, “Bluebird.”

She wrote, “Y’all giving this song wings was a bright spot of this year.”

Along with the caption, Lambert also included a video of herself performing a stripped-down version of the timeless tune. 

In an interview, she discussed her unique love for the song and how proud she felt when she wrote the dreamy, country tune.

“I love ‘Bluebird.’ It’s a song like I’ve never written before and I’m so proud to be a part of it,” the superstar previously shared in a press release about the song. 

Miranda Lambert Sees More Bluebirds After She Drops Song

Miranda Lambert also mentioned that after she recorded the track, a particular bird started appearing more frequently to the singer. 

“Since I wrote it, I’ve been seeing bluebirds everywhere. The bluebirds had always been there – I live on a farm – but I never saw them like I see them now. It reminds me to open my eyes to what’s around me. Now, seeing a bluebird sitting on a branch means so much more to me. I see a little piece of hope there, sitting with wings, and it’s a reminder. I think this is one of those songs where every person takes what they need to from it.”

“Bluebird” was co-penned by Miranda Lambert alongside Natalie Hemby and Luke Dick. The track is the second radio single from Lambert’s latest album, Wildcard. The song was Lambert’s first No. 1 song on country radio since her single “Automatic,” which hit No. 1 in 2014.

Lambert also performed the hit during the CBS special: A Home For The Holidays, which aired on Sunday, Dec. 20.
