Fans might think two of the reigning female superstars in country music might be in competition with each other, but when it comes to Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Underwood and Lambert, both Las Vegas headliners, remain each other’s biggest cheerleaders and strongest supporters.
“We’ve both been at this thing for a while now…Seen a lot,” Underwood captioned a photo of the pair. “Done a lot. Sang a lot. Through it all, it’s nice to know you’ve got great people in your corner! Thanks for coming to the show last night, Miranda! Cheers to Vegas and cheers to us for all we’ve accomplished and to whatever comes next!

Lambert also wrote touching words to her longtime friend, and 2014 “Somethin’ Bad” duet partner.
“Got to see Carrie Underwood in Vegas last night at her Reflection residency,” Lambert posted. “This show is so well thought out and it is a perfect reflection of her and what a career she has built. The lights, fire, music, production, sparkle’s and most importantly that voice. Carrie, you are an icon in every sense of the word. We’ve both been on this journey for 20 years and I’m proud of both of us for staying the course and dreamin’ big. Like you said , cheers to us and I’m proud to be in your corner . Thanks for having me last night. Blown away. Literally.”
Both Underwood and Lambert were nominated for the ACM Entertainer of the Year trophy in 2022, with Lambert walking away with the night’s highest honor, and Underwood praising the Texan for her big win.
“It is wonderful, because there are always so many incredibly talented women in the genre, and Miranda’s long overdue for winning this award,” Underwood said after Lambert’s win. “So I couldn’t be more proud of her as a sister in this genre of music, in this industry. There were a lot of incredible females on stage tonight, and I look forward to more of that happening.”
Lambert will play her final Velvet Rodeo shows in early 2024. Underwood has also announced her REFLECTION: The Las Vegas Residency will continue next year, although she has yet to announce when the residency will end.
