Miranda Lambert is giving fans a look inside her star-studded 40th birthday party, which recently took place in her home state of Texas.

In honor of the occasion, the superstar took over the iconic honky tonk, Billy Bob’s for her “Billy Bob’s Texas Boot Scootin’ 40th.” Lambert said it was “the absolute best birthday my Texas heart could ask for” and shared a slew of photos (captured by Tyler Conrad), giving fans a look inside the party. 

Who Attended Miranda Lambert’s 40th Birthday Party?

Guests included her husband, Brendan McLoughlin, Lainey Wilson, Dierks Bentley, Little Big Town, Caylee Hammack, Lambert’s fellow Pistol Annies, Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley, Jack Ingram, songwriters Jessi Alexander and Natalie Hemby, and more. Lambert’s dad, Rick Lambert, her mom, Bev Lambert, and her brother, Luke Lambert, also attended the 40th birthday bash.   

Who Performed At Her Birthday Party?

According to her social media posts, Adam Hood, Randy Rogers Band, and Wade Bowen performed at the soiree, and songwriter Jesse Frasure appeared to deejay for part of the evening as well. 

Lambert rang in a new decade sporting a jumpsuit with pops of red bandana designs and fringe sleeves. She topped off her birthday fit with a cowboy hat. Meanwhile, McLoughlin donned a bolo tie with jeans a plaid jacket, and cowboy boots. Her rings and necklace were custom-designed by Mud Lowery, who tells us the necklace is composed of sterling silver crystal and gemstones. It was originally designed for Lambert when she performed “Mamas Don’t Let Your Babies Group Up To Cowboys” for Willie Nelson’s 90th birthday.

When Did Miranda Lambert Turn 40?

Lambert officially turned 40 on November 10, 2023, and admitted that it took her so long to post photos because she was filled with immense appreciation for her friends who took the time to celebrate with her.
