It’s been one achievement after another for Miranda Lambert lately.
The country superstar was recently named to the prestigious TIME 100 Most Influential People list, as she shared in a social media post Monday. She was included in the “Innovators” category, alongside actress/singer Zendaya and Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Watiti.
“I’m so honored to join this year’s class of #TIME100,” Lambert captioned on an Instagram photo. “I only ever wanted to sing and write songs and thanks to y’all I’ve gotten to do that and so much more. Thank y’all for being on this journey with me💖”
Elle King, who collaborated with Lambert on their hit “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” and joined the singer for her Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars tour in 2019, penned a tribute.
“Not a lot of people will take your hand, nudge you right into the spotlight, and share it with you — especially if they’ve already spent decades as one of country music’s most acclaimed performers and songwriters,” King wrote. “But that’s exactly what Miranda Lambert did in 2019, when she asked me to be a part of her Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour, during which she brought along a new generation of artists to share her stage.”
Lambert is currently touring alongside Little Big Town on a second round of their Bandwagon Tour through June 11, with her Las Vegas residency Velvet Rope: The Las Vegas Residency beginning Sept. 23.
