On Thursday, country star Miranda Lambert practiced her Grammys performance and spoke out about her upcoming live shows.

The singer is already in Los Angeles, California preparing for this weekend’s 63rd Annual Grammy Awards. On Sunday night, the annual event will take place at the Staples Center. Lambert is up for three awards on the night for her song “Bluebird” and her album Wildcard. She’s been nominated for Best Country Solo Performance, Best Country Song, and Best Country Album.

The singer took a moment to answer a few questions about the event. During the short interview, Lambert spoke about the COVID-19 precautions the Grammys are implementing. Additionally, she spoke about getting dressed up for the special occasion, which will be a treat considering the last year’s worth of quarantining.

The country artist also opened up about her upcoming concerts. She’s playing a series of five shows in Fort Worth, Texas in late April.

“I’ve got some shows on the books, and you know, we’re just gonna go play. And we’re gonna say a prayer and get up there and play some music. I hope that’s a start of something that gets the ball rolling for a lot of artists and a lot of fans because we all need each other.

The 2021 Grammys were originally set for Sunday, Jan. 31 before officials postponed the event. Just weeks prior to the initial date, they decided to reschedule because of rising COVID-19 cases in L.A. There will be no in-person attendance by anyone not involved with the performances or awards this year. In fact, the musical artists themselves will be spaced out and socially distant throughout the event.

Miranda Lambert’s Song ‘Bluebird’ Receives Multiple Nominations

Miranda Lambert is set to perform her hit song “Bluebird” at the 2021 Grammy Awards, but it’s also been recognized in multiple categories. During a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, the singer opened up about what her fans can expect from the performance.

“The set is beautiful,” said Lambert. “It’s very feminine and beautiful. Also, there’s an energy with my band and I, because we haven’t played ‘Bluebird,’ really since it’s been ‘Bluebird.’ So we’re really happy to be up there and playing music.”

Lambert recorded “Bluebird” before the COVID-19 pandemic began. However, she said that the song has been a beacon of hope for her this past year. She’s also glad it helped others through these tough times.

“I think ‘Bluebird’ just came at a really crazy time. I think the message of the song, we obviously would never have known what we were writing when we were writing it,” she explained. “But when it became a single, it was kind of the beginning of 2020. So I think it was kind of a little beacon of a song of hope for people. It was for us, so I’m really thankful that it came out when it did, and that it helped people through something.”
