Carrie Underwood on Miranda Lambert’s New No. 1: ‘Long Overdue’
Actually, "Bluebird" is Lambert's first No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart since "Over You" in 2012, a drought Underwood recognizes as unfortunate.
"Congratulations!" Underwood writes. "Long overdue!"
Over the last decade, women in country music have not gotten nearly as much airplay as their male counterparts, and No. 1 songs from female artists have been few and far between. The "Cry Pretty" singer's show of support comes nine months after Lambert showered love on Underwood prior to the 2019 CMA Awards.
In October, Lambert used an Instagram post to show her support for Underwood, but she echoed those comments during an interview with Taste of Country Nights. See that video below.
"It wasn’t about being a woman, I’m not raising that flag," Lambert says. "It was about, if you think of what Entertainer of the Year encompasses for the year and how you represented country music in the public eye."
It's been a quiet year for Underwood musically, but she is set to release her first Christmas album in the fall. Lambert says she's not working on new music during quarantine; instead, she's enjoying time with husband Brendan McLoughlin.
