Miranda Lambert’s Reaction to Her 2017 Grammys Nods Involves a Puppy and Booze
Sweet little puppies, a stocked bar and two 2017 Grammy Awards nominations -- these are a few of Miranda Lambert's favorite things. On Tuesday afternoon (Dec. 6), the country star used Instagram to share her feelings about her newly announced Grammys nods.
"Grammy nom feels!!!! What an amazing Tuesday," Lambert wrote beneath a photo of an adorable puppy (making the perfect face!) sitting atop a bar stocked with Tito's vodka, Jack Daniel's whiskey ... and plenty of water. "To have such a personal song as #Vice be nominated means the world."
Appropriately, Lambert hashtagged her photo with both "#rescuedogsanddrinks" and "#anothervice." She also thanked her "Vice" co-writers, Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne, called them "bada--es."
Lambert's "Vice" -- her first single from her newest album, The Weight of These Wings -- was nominated for both Best Country Song (which goes to the winning tune's writers) and Best Country Solo Performance. The Weight of These Wings itself was released too late to be eligible for the 2017 Grammys.
“I think this song is an opportunity to just be honest and own it and say, ‘Yeah, I have some imperfections, and I live a life, and here and there I might get in a pickle,’” Lambert says of the song. “It’s not about one thing or another. Everybody has a vice they run to when they need comfort, and I think that’s what this song says. There’s no mystery here. I run to things for comfort just like everybody else.”
The 59th annual Grammy Awards will take place in Los Angeles on Feb. 12. The Late Late Show host James Corden will host the televised ceremony, which will begin at 8PM ET on CBS; the pre-telecast Premiere Ceremony will begin at 3:30PM ET and be available to stream online. Further details, including a list of performers, will be announced in the coming weeks.
