Carrie Underwood had a night off in Las Vegas and used the opportunity to hop down the strip to attend Miranda Lambert’s Velvet Rodeo The Las Vegas Residency at Bakkt Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.

Underwood documented her experience at the show on Instagram, taking fans inside the Lambert’s residency via Instagram stories. 

Night Out On The Town

First, she shared a photo of Lambert’s stage and wrote, “Mama went out tonight!!!”

Later, she included a backstage snapshot of the country music powerhouses hanging together backstage. “Just a couple country girls hanging out in Vegas,” she wrote alongside the photo. 

Underwood didn’t stop there. Showing her true support for her former labelmate and longtime friend, she shared videos of Lambert’s set, including performances of “Fastest Girl In Town” and “The House That Built Me.”   

“Thanks for having us tonight Miranda Lambert! Such a great show,” Underwood captioned one of the videos. 

Closing out the night, she shared a final photo of Lambert’s performance with the caption, “THE Miranda Lambert, people!”

Women Supporting Women

These country music icons have had a mutual admiration for one another and have always shared a bond within the music community. While some might expect for them to see each other as competitors, they have always celebrated each other’s successes. 

In 2019, Lambert spoke out to show her support for Underwood, who at the time was nominated for CMA Entertainer of the Year. In her post, she decided to share her “two cents” and went on to share her thoughts on each of the nominees. While she considers them all friends and deserving of the honor, Lambert championed Underwood for the award. 

“Carrie – The Entertainer Of The Year. Because… Currently being on tour with all-female artists, I’ve been thinking a lot about all the work that goes into what we do. The most amazing job in the world. But it ain’t for the faint of heart. @carrieunderwood is on an all-female tour too. The Cry Pretty Tour 360,” Lambert wrote at the time. 

The Texas native continued, “She put out her first single in 2005 and from then on country music was changed for good. That iconic voice has been classin’ up our stages, charts and televisions for a decade and a half. The Voice. The legs. The songs. The brand. The mom. The wife. The okie. The Jesus lover. The blonde bombshell that is Carrie. She blows me away every time I hear her sing. She never wavers in who she is or what she stands for. She has stayed true & pushed herself to be better. If you have never heard her sing “How Great Thou Art” do yourself a favor and listen. I have her back in this picture and I’ll always have her back. So for the sake of sequins, spanx and spray tans, take it home! You Carrie the torch!”

In 2023, Underwood showed her support for Lambert when she released her first-ever book, Y’ALL EAT YET? Welcome to the Pretty B*tchin’ Kitchen. The “Cry Pretty” singer congratulated her on the release of the book and said, “my tummy is so excited!” 

“Somethin’ Bad”

Having joined forces before, the artists teamed up for the spirited anthem “Somethin’ Bad” back in 2014. This track is featured on Lambert’s fifth studio album, “Platinum,” and earned a GRAMMY nomination in the Best Country Duo/Group Performance category.
