Miranda Lambert took to Twitter last night when she was sitting on her back porch in Nashville. She was reflecting on the cooler weather, which reminded her of her birthday, and the quickly approaching CMA Awards. She broke down the most important award of the night, ‘Entertainer of the Year’ and spoke highly of all the nominees, with one in particular, Carrie Underwood.
It’s fall weather in Nashville! Sitting here on my porch, I realize with the chill in the air that it’s getting closer to Nov which means my birthday month and #CMAawards final voting time. Entertainer Of The Year is the big one So I’m gonna share my two cents… pic.twitter.com/lAS2GvmtUH

Keith Urban, who she called her friend and hero because he believed in her when she was a baby artist.
Garth Brooks, who she said was life changing for her. His was the first concert she saw and the first cassette she bought.
Eric Church, who she declared one of the best songwriters of all time who can turn a phrase like no other.
Chris Stapleton, who has the kind of voice and gift of songwriting that make you either want to quit or just work harder.
And then Carrie Underwood….
Lambert goes on and on about her friend. About how good she is at all her jobs, none of which are for the faint of heart. About how when she won American Idol, country music was changed for good. “I will always have her back,” she tweeted.
“For the sake of sequins, Spanx, and spray tans, take it home!”
Looks like Underwood can count on Lambert’s vote in the year that has the CMA Awards.
