Miranda Lambert’s No.1 song “Bluebird” has just been announced as the winner of Music Video of the Year at the CMAs.
Production of ‘Bluebird’
The winning video features Lambert in a blue, shimmering dress as she twirls in an old-fashioned bird cage in front of an audience. The video also cuts between images of a bluebird and her “bird-like” dress. The video exemplifies blue with piercing background lights, costume design, and striking eye makeup.
Trey Fanjoy, American music video director, is responsible for piecing together “Bluebird” into an award-winning watch. Fanjoy has produced several of Lambert’s videos. He is also responsible for creating videos for artists like Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton, Reba McEntire, and Keith Urban.
“Bluebird” comes from her album titled “Wildcard” which was released last November.
Lambert is up for seven different nominations tonight. She is making CMA Awards history as the most-nominated female artist ever. Her song “Bluebird” is also up for Song of the Year tonight. The CMAs premiere tonight on ABC at 8/7 CT.
She is also up for the biggest award of the night, Entertainer of the Year. She will go against Carrie Underwood in this award.
According to ET, Lambert says it’s an honor to go against Underwood. “That’s pretty incredible and it’s also very humbling to be the other one next to Carrie Underwood … She’s a force and I’ve always been a huge supporter and believer, and was very vocal last year about how I thought she should take it home. So if she does this year, I’ll be the first one out of my seat.”
The news of Lambert’s first win comes a day after her 37th birthday. A belated birthday gift, with possibly more to come tonight.
