You never know when you may just need a drink.
Miranda Lambert’s assistant always comes prepared. The reigning ACM Female Vocalist of the Year recently told Sounds Like Nashville that her assistant always packs a bag of liquor for emergencies.
“My assistant packs – I call it my nanny bag – she packs a bag of liquor for emergencies, for meltdowns and things like that” Lambert said.
The nanny bag sure came in handy this past weekend as the “Vice” artist was traveling to Las Vegas for the ACM Awards. On her way to the show, Lambert’s flight was diverted which forced her and her team, including boyfriend Anderson East, to rent a van and drive to Vegas.
Lambert said she embraced the “fun” adventure as all they needed was a cooler of ice to be golden.
At the 52nd ACM Awards, Lambert took home two awards. She won Female Vocalist of the Year for the eighth consecutive time, as well as Album of the Year for her two-disc The Weight of These Wings.
