Country star Miranda Lambert celebrated her birthday in style in the early hours of Thursday (10Nov11) at a Country Music Association Awards post-show party.
The newlywed singer, who picked up the Female Vocalist of the Year award at the ceremony, was still stunned by the victory when she turned 28 hours later.
In a tweet to fans, she wrote, "Happy Birthday is an understatement. I turned 28 at 12:08 am. I can't believe this is my life... Thank you country music fans and peers. Last night was amazing."
It's not the first time Lambert, who wed country star Blake Shelton earlier this year (11), has celebrated her birthday at country's big night - last year (10) the CMAs fell on her 27th birthday and she took home Song, Video and Album of the Year honours and was named Female Vocalist of the Year for the first time.
