Country music star Miranda Lambert was a busy woman on Sunday night at the Academy of Country Music Awards.
The 37-year-old Lambert came into the night’s event as the most decorated artist in ACM Awards history. And she was up for another four trophies this year including Female Artist of the Year. She was also nominated for Single of the Year, Song of the Year, and Video of the Year — all for her hit song, “Bluebird.”
In addition to receiving nominations for multiple awards, Lambert was busy headlining as one of the night’s main performers. She absolutely crushed her performance of “Drunk” with Elle King. Not only that but she also filled in for Chris Stapleton’s wife during his ACM Awards performance.
Meanwhile, Miranda Lambert let her fans on social media in for a behind-the-scenes look at her get up for the show. The country star was looking as fresh as ever in her blue jean jacket and cowgirl hat and boots. Lambert says that her hat will soon be featured as part of her lifestyle brand, Idyllwind.
“BTS 👢✨ @idyllwind hat coming soon & Vice Roy boot,” Lambert wrote alongside her photo on Twitter.
And of course, wherever Miranda Lambert goes her fans are right there behind her. That was the case yet again on Sunday night. Many of them sent replies to the “Bluebird” singer saying just how much they loved her outfit.
“You looked beautiful!” one user on Twitter commented. “That hat ❤️ Those boots ❤️ Perfection.”
“Omg my wallet says I need them,” another follower joked.
Miranda Lambert Fills in for Morgane Stapleton at ACM Awards
According to People Magazine, Miranda Lambert filled in for Chris Stapleton’s wife Morgane, just moments before they were set to take the stage on Sunday night. Lambert and Stapleton performed side-by-side at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, Tennessee.
“Due to her prior doula commitment, Morgane Stapleton is unable to join Chris Stapleton at the Bluebird as scheduled,” ACM told People. “Miranda Lambert will instead take the Bluebird stage with Chris tonight for ‘Maggie’s Song.'”
“Maggie’s Song” was co-written by Stapleton about his family’s rescued lab-terrier mix who passed away in 2019 at the age of 14. In the song, Stapleton says that he and his wife discovered a “fuzzy black pup” who was abandoned at a Petsmart parking lot.
The song is one of the more emotional ones to come from Stapleton. He said that he “kept crying through a lot of it.”
