Miranda Lambert couldn't contain her excitement after Carrie Underwood posted her performance at the CMAs for 2019.
To draw double duty as she often does – the host and the artist, who gave a black sequin body with sheer lace details and a black fedora hat delivered a show-stopping version of their latest single, "Drink Alone" with the help of a noir-style production.
When Underwood's performance was complete, cameras panicked to Lambert, 36, who was left in awe as she sat in the audience with husband Brenden McLoughlin, marveling at the presence of her fellow country star's peer.

Earlier this week, Underwood, 36, felt it difficult to keep her calm during a performance on the "Ty Bentli Show" after learning Lambert praised her for her work in the industry since it made it big on "American Idol."  "For me, this year's entertainer is who represented the genre in every way the best for that year," Lambert said. "It was just something I did, I really felt compelled to say something."

"Watch Carrie host CMA's pregnant, and also does the [Sunday] Night Football campaign, also a brand, and also working with charity, and being a wife and being a mom and then hosting two legendary country artists … I just know how much work it is, "she added.
Lambert concluded: "She works harder than I do, and I work hard. And I just felt as a whole with her tour and everything she encompasses and what she represented for country music, she deserves it. She does just that. "
Underwood's kind words, Underwood was grateful.

"I mean, it's a nomination for all of us, and it would definitely be, you know, not just a win for all the things we've done, all the things she mentioned that I'm so happy and blessed enough to do, but I mean you know that looking at other women in this industry does the same thing.
