Country music superstar Carrie Underwood is not just a doting mother of two but also a supportive friend. She sent her fellow country music sister Miranda Lambert a short but sweet message after her song, “Blue Bird,” hit number 1 on the charts.
On July 27, over Twitter, Underwood extended her heartfelt congratulations to Lambert after the latter announced that her song went to the top of the Billboard chart.
Thousands reacted to Underwood’s tweet, with some expressing delight over how the two remarkable musicians are supporting each other.
On July 26, the 36-year-old “Bluebird” singer took to Instagram to express her happiness after her song topped the Billboard chart. Lambert said it has been 8 years since she topped the charts. She wrote:
“Turns out we did have a wildcard up our sleeve.”
Other musicians and friends joined Underwood in sending words of praise to Lambert. Among them were Marina McBride, Tanya Tucker, and Karen Fairchild from “Little Big Town.”
There’s no wonder why Lambert’s song landed at the top chart. “Bluebird” has optimistic and delightful beats. It speaks of forward-moving solutions and has no drama.
As reported by Taste of Country, the song is about moving on to another chapter of life. Of all the tracks under “Wildcard” album, “Bluebird,” is Lambert’s favorite.
The song was released on August 15 last year, while the album hit stores in November 2019.

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
Aside from Lambert’s lengthy message, many fans took notice of the photos she shared in her post. The first photo was from her “Bluebird” music video while the other one shows the singer in a polka-dot swimsuit while sipping a drink.
In the first part of her message, Lambert wrote that 2020 had not given her any reason to celebrate. But news of her song topping the charts was a delightful surprise that needed celebrating. She said:
“I’m celebrating happiness and the feeling of artistic freedom in a time where we all feel a little caged.”
Even if she feels isolated because of the coronavirus pandemic, she remains grateful that husband Brendan Mcloughlin is there for her all the time. Lambert has been quarantined with McLoughlin.
The couple secretly married in January 2019. They were able to celebrate their first wedding anniversary just before the lockdown started.
For Lambert, the pandemic is a good test for newly-married couples, saying that it can deepen relationships amid the anxiety and uncertainty.
But Lambert, like most people, also had a hard time adjusting herself to the way of life during quarantine. To make things a little lighter for her, she and McLoughlin took their trailer vehicle – a 2020 Airstream Globetrotter – out on the road.
The trailer was her latest addition to her vintage trailer collections. While on the road, the couple was able to rescue a kitten on a Texas highway.
