Miranda Lambert’s Jet Forced To Make Emergency Landing

CREATED Jun 4, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A private jet with country superstar Miranda Lambert on board had to make an emergency landing on their way to Nashville.

Lambert and her team were headed back from New York following appearances to promote her new album when the cabin suddenly lost pressure.

The crew was forced to stop in West Virginia for about three hours before resuming the trek.

Lambert took to social media to tell her fans what had happened, writing, "Our plane had an emergency landing in Clarksburg WV. But don't worry, we found platinum fire suits. Yes! #platinum"

They finally landed at the Smyrna Airport around 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Lambert’s new album “Platinum” was released Tuesday. She will perform with Carrie Underwood Wednesday night at the CMT Music Awards in Nashville. On Friday, she and husband Blake Shelton will take part in the CMA Music Festival nightly concert at LP Field.

On Saturday, she will then travel to Dallas to help George Strait on his final concert.

The "Miranda Lambert: Backstage Access” exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame recently opened to the public. It includes gowns, stage costumes, awards and much more from the reigning CMA and ACM Female Vocalist of the Year.
