Miranda Lambert is celebrating her 39th birthday and her husband, Brendan McLoughlin, shared a heartfelt message in her honor.
McLoughlin took to social media on Thursday (Nov. 10) with a series of photos alongside a sweet caption dedicated to his bride.
“Another year and another birthday. Happy Birthday @mirandalambert,” McLoughlin wrote. ”It’s always an honor to be called your husband. You’re the most beautiful person inside and out. You have the biggest heart and show it everyday through your love for others and animals.”
He concluded his post, which included photos of many of the couple’s adventures around the U.S. and the world, by writing, “Can’t wait to celebrate many more. Just wanted to say happy birthday and I love you. ❤️🥳❤️🎂”
McLoughlin recently joined Lambert on the red carpet at the 2022 BMI Country Awards and the 56th Annual CMA Awards, where she was nominated for several awards, including Entertainer Of The Year, Female Vocalist Of The Year, and Album Of The Year (Palomino).
“I am very busy, but it’s good,” Lambert told ABC while on the red carpet. “It’s Scorpio season, my birthday’s tomorrow, so it’s a gift to get to do what I love. And I’ve been doing it for a really long time!”
Lambert holds the record as the CMA Awards’ all-time most-nominated female artist with 61 career nominations to date.
During the show, Lambert performed her fan-favorite tune, “Geraldene,” and also took to the stage alongside Reba McEntire and Carrie Underwood for a tribute to Loretta Lynn.
The Texas native is currently on a break from her Velvet Rodeo Las Vegas Residency at Zappos Theater, which kicked off on September 23, 2022. The Velvet Rodeo will return to Las Vegas on November 26.
Meanwhile, Lambert’s latest single, “Strange,” was recently brought to life with a live music video that was filmed throughout her recent The Bandwagon Tour and her headlining set at Windy City Smokeout.
The song was co-written by Lambert, Luke Dick, and Natalie Hemby on Lambert’s Tennessee farm in 2020 during the midst of the pandemic shutdown when life felt, you guessed it – strange.
“Have a smoke, buy a round/ Get on a jetliner goin’ anywhere-bound/ Pick a string, sing the blues/ Dance a hole in your shoes/ Do anything to keep you sane/ ‘Cause times like these make me feel strange/ Times like these make me feel strange,” Lambert sings.
“The chorus, we wanted it to lift and sort of be an anthem, and not creepy in any way,” Lambert explained to Billboard. “Just like, ‘Have fun, get a drink, get out of here, go on vacation’ — whatever you got to do to stay sane through all this weirdness. I wanted it to be an anthem uniting people. The pandemic definitely was the strangest thing we’ve all been through, but that’s just a piece of it.”
“Strange” follows her single “If I Was A Cowboy,” both of which appear on her ninth studio album, Palomino.
The reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year nominee will return to the stage on November 12 at ATLive in Atlanta, Georgia.
