Miranda Lambert was in a celebratory mood this weekend. The country music sensation just had her recent single, “Bluebird,” hit number 1 on the Billboard charts, the first time in eight years that she claimed the top spot. The star celebrated her special milestone by posting a heartfelt note on Instagram describing how humbled and blessed she was. She also added two photos, one of which seemed to depict her mood perfectly.
The “Tin Man” singer had previously mentioned how hard it has been these past few months as she dealt with not being able to tour. Miranda described how she adapted to the change of circumstances, writing that she is “celebrating happiness and the feeling of artistic freedom.” She went on to celebrate country music and everyone who has been involved in helping her get to where she is today, including her fans. She also gave a huge thanks to all those who worked hard into making her recent album, Wildcard, so successful.
The first of the two photos displayed Miranda in her “Bluebird” outfit full of glitter and feathers that she wore in the music video. She was sitting in a cage and singing her heart out. However, it was the second snapshot that seemed to be the real Miranda.

2020 hasn't offered a whole lot to celebrate, especially for musicians. But I am celebrating this week. I'm celebrating happiness and the feeling of artistic freedom in a time where we all feel a little caged. I'm celebrating country music and all the joy it has brought to my life. I'm celebrating ALL the fans, the writers , the musicians, the crews, and bands, radio and streaming services, venues big and small for allowing me to have the most wonderful career for the last 17 years. “Bluebird" is officially a number one song. It's been 8 years since I had a number 1 on the billboard charts and 6 years on mediabase. I have spent my life doing what I love and I feel more blessed and humbled than ever to have this song of hope resonate with you all. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. And thank you to @lukedick for allowing me to write this beautifl idea with you and to @nataliehemby (my Dean Dillon ) for bringing it home. Also Jay Joyce for bringing it to life and giving it wings, @iamtreyfanjoy for setting this bluebird free in the most beautiful video. And my mangament Shopkeeper MGMT @marionkraft and @sonynashville records for fighting for this song and for me. Turns out we did have a wildcard up our sleeve. #bluebird #wildcard #1
In that pic, she was sitting in a pink, retro-style chair holding a mason jar from which she sipped a drink through a straw. The blond bombshell was chilling in a blue bikini top with white polka dots. It was a halter-style number that tied around her neck. She paired it with denim shorts that showed off her slender legs. Miranda was barefoot and sat with her legs crossed. Her dark sunglasses and a red bandanna on her head completed her cool ensemble.
Although the back of her head wasn’t completely shown, she appeared to have her hair styled into a high bun. There was a small white table beside her with a green umbrella situated behind it, as well as an empty chair on the other side. The patio set was situated on an artificial grass carpet.
The backdrop for the photo consisted of a gravel walkway that led to a wooded area.
Miranda and her husband Brandon just added a new member to their family. On their recent travels, the married duo discovered a small kitten alongside the road and decided to bring it home with them. They named the furry creature Tequila.
