Underwood Attended Lambert’s Residency Earlier This Week
Underwood attended Lambert’s Las Vegas residency on Sunday evening and took fans along for the rida via Instagram stories. While at Bakkt Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, she complimented Lambert’s Velvet Rodeo The Las Vegas Residency and shared video clips of performances of “Fastest Girl In Town” and “The House That Built Me.”
“Thanks for having us tonight Miranda Lambert! Such a great show,” Underwood later shared.

Previously Collaborated Together
Both iconic artists in their own right, Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood hit the country music scene around the same time. Lambert’s debut single, “Me and Charlie Talking,” arrived in late 2004, while Underwood began to turn heads in 2005 following her run on season four of American Idol.
Throughout their individual careers, both female powerhouses have faced comparisons and competition, but their friendship has remained unshaken. Despite external pressures, they consistently support each other. They even collaborated on the track “Somethin’ Bad” in 2014.
Fans can catch both artists performing in Las Vegas. Lambert’s Velvet Rodeo The Las Vegas Residency at Bakkt Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino runs through early next year. Meanwhile, Underwood’s REFLECTION: The Las Vegas Residency at Resorts World Theatre will also continue through 2024.
