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.

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. “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. And thank you to @lukedick for allowing me to write this beautifl idea with you and to @nataliehemby (my Dean Dillon ) for bringing it home. Also Jay Joyce for bringing it to life and giving it wings, @iamtreyfanjoy for setting this bluebird free in the most beautiful video. And my mangament Shopkeeper MGMT @marionkraft and @sonynashville records for fighting for this song and for me. Turns out we did have a wildcard up our sleeve. #bluebird #wildcard #1
