A plane carrying Miranda Lambert made an emergency landing en route to Nashville on Tuesday (June 3).

According to Nashville’s Tennessean newspaper, Lambert had been in New York to promote her newly-released album, ‘Platinum.’ She was returning to Nashville when the corporate flight she was on lost pressure and was diverted to West Virginia. The plane made an emergency landing at North Central West Virginia Airport.

Lambert’s publicist says the four-time CMA Female Vocalist of the Year and her friends killed time during the three hours the flight was grounded by hanging out with firefighters and trying on their hazmat suits. Lambert even found a way to tie the incident in with her new album release, posting this picture to social media with the caption, “Our plane had an emergency landing in Clarksburg WV. But don’t worry, we found platinum fire suits. Yes! #platinum.”

The plane later landed at Smyrna Airport, near Nashville, at around 7PM CT.

Lambert is scheduled to perform with Carrie Underwood on the CMT Music Awards Wednesday night (June 4), and at LP Field Friday night (June 6) as part of the 2014 CMA Music Festival.
