"I am opening the show this year so I can't tell you much other than that [there will be] some surprises, but I am also done at 7.05pm so I get to sit and enjoy my night which is amazing," she said, talking in a behind-the-scenes video from the CMA's.

"I am so thankful to still be coming to the CMAs," she shared, adding: "It's been a decade and half and I have gotten to be a part of it for a long time and it never gets old."

"It's also one of those nights where you get to reunite with friends - you make friends over the years but we don't see each other that much on the road so it's really cool."

Miranda has also promised that she and pal Elle King may finally get to "live out" their song Drunk (And I Don't Wanna Go Home).

"We've never gotten to actually get drunk and not want to go home together as she was pregnant, so we're sitting together and it's the first time we'll get to live out our song together so I am very excited about that," she revealed.

The track has been nominated for Musical Event of the Year at the 55th Annual Country Music Association awards, and was a summer smash for the country singers.
