Lambert will also take the stage during the 2020 Academy of Country Music Awards. She'll perform her song "Bluebird" from Nashville's iconic songwriter haven The Bluebird Cafe.

In addition to her CMA record, Lambert is also the most awarded artist in ACM history with 32 wins.

"Bluebird," written by Lambert, Natalie Hemby and Luke Dick, hit No. 1 earlier this year, earning Lambert her first No. 1 song in six years and first Billboard No. 1 in 8 years.

"2020 hasn't offered a whole lot to celebrate, especially for musicians," Lambert wrote on Instagram. "But I am celebrating this week.  I'm celebrating happiness and the feeling of artistic freedom in a time where we all feel a little caged. I'm celebrating country music and all the joy it has brought to my life. I'm celebrating ALL the fans,  the writers , the musicians, the crews, and bands, radio and streaming services, venues big and small for allowing me to have the most wonderful career for the last 17 years. "Bluebird" is officially a number one song. It's been 8 years since I had a number 1 on the billboard charts and 6 years on mediabase. I have spent my life doing what I love and I feel more blessed and humbled than ever to have this song of hope resonate with you all."
