How do you make an emergency landing fun? Play around in shiny, expensive equipment.
Miranda Lambert just released her new album Platinum on Tuesday, making this the busiest week of her year and probably the worst time for unforeseen circumstances. Unfortunately, on the same day, Lambert’s private plane had to make an emergency landing. The country superstar and her team were flying the familiar course from New York to Nashville, when the plane lost pressure and had to land in Clarksburg, West Virginia. The passengers then had to spend three hours on the ground, before continuing sounthward, according to CBS news.
Lambert has a lot on her plate this week, not counting emergency landings.
But don’t worry, the fiery singer and her entourage found ways to entertain themselves during the wait.
The group hung out with firefighters on the scene and even got to try on their shiny hazmat suits – a perfect photo op, if ever we’ve seen one. They also listened to a lot of country music.
"All in all, it was a pretty good day," Lambert’s publicist, Wes Vause, concluded his statement.
Oh, and in case you’re wondering, everyone made it to Nashville safe and sound - the plane landed at Smyrna Airport in Tennessee around 7 p.m. Central time. Lambert is moving on with her packed schedule around the release of Platinum. She kicked off the week with a series of interviews in New York and is next scheduled to oerfirm at the CMT Music Awards on Wednesday with Carrie Underwood, befire teaming up with Shelton on Friday at the CMA Music Festival and then traveling Saturday to Dallas to help George Strait with his final concert.
The country icon is set to perform with Carrie Uderwood at the CMT Awards.
