Emergency landing in West Virginia

Miranda Lambert had a scary experience on Tuesday when her plane was forced to make an emergency landing while en route to Nashville, Tennessee!

Miranda Lambert was on her way to Nashville, Tennessee, on Tuesday, but her plane decided it had other ideas.

The 30-year-old country star must have had quite a fright when her private jet was forced to make an emergency landing in Clarksburg, West Virginia. Lambert had been en route to Nashville for the CMT Awards from New York City, New York, where she'd appeared on Good Morning America, when the aircraft encountered difficulties.

The jet plane lost pressure and was forced to divert, but after spending three hours on the ground, it resumed its journey southward, the Daily Mail reports.

The "Automatic" hit maker decided to share her experience with fans via Instagram when she uploaded a picture of her and local firefighters dressed in platinum (also the name of her latest album) suits. "Our plane had an emergency landing in Clarksburg WV. But don't worry, we found platinum fire suits," she wrote.

Apparently, the blond beauty was calm and happy throughout the entire experience. Scott Poling, a lineman at the airport, revealed to Metro News, "She's super down-to-earth, doesn't act like a celebrity, a country girl."

"They put on our fire suits inside here to promote their new album Platinum, which I have pictures of. She autographed a couple of CDs for me and my buddies here. It was pretty cool, " Poling added. "She was really happy. She thanked us several times."

We're glad Lambert eventually got to her destination safely!
