Miranda Lambert’s “Bluebird” is flying high to the No.1 spot at country radio this week.
The track tops both the Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase/Country Aircheck charts and is officially the superstar’s seventh No.1 single and first chart-topper since 2014’s “Automatic.”
“Bluebird,” which was raked in over 130 million on-demand streams, was co-written by Lambert alongside Natalie Hemby and Luke Dick.
Lambert took to Instagram to share her excitement over the song’s achievement, thanking everyone who was involved in making the song a success.
“2020 hasn’t offered a whole lot to celebrate, especially for musicians. But I am celebrating this week. I’m celebrating happiness and the feeling of artistic freedom in a time where we all feel a little caged. I’m celebrating country music and all the joy it has brought to my life. I’m celebrating ALL the fans, the writers, the musicians, the crews, and bands, radio and streaming services, venues big and small for allowing me to have the most wonderful career for the last 17 years,” she wrote. “‘Bluebird’ is officially a number one song. It’s been 8 years since I had a number 1 on the Billboard charts and 6 years on Mediabase. I have spent my life doing what I love and I feel more blessed and humbled than ever to have this song of hope resonate with you all. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
