COUNTRY MUSIC SUPERSTARS MIRANDA LAMBERT AND CARRIE UNDERWOOD DEBUT NEW DUET LIVE AT THE 2014 BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS

Airing Live Sunday, May 18, 2014 From The MGM Grand Garden Arena on ABC at 8pm ET

Country music superstars Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood will perform together live at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards to debut their new duet. The two singers join an already star-studded lineup of previously announced musical performers that includes 5 Seconds of Summer, Florida Georgia Line, Imagine Dragons, Jason Derulo, Jennifer Lopez, John Legend, Luke Bryan, OneRepublic and Pitbull. The 2014 Billboard Music Awards will broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on SUNDAY, MAY 18 on ABC at 8pm ET.

The two leading ladies of country will perform "Somethin' Bad," which appears on Ms. Lambert's upcoming album Platinum, available June 3rd. "I'm a huge Carrie Underwood fan," said Lambert. "'Somethin' Bad" is a meshing of our styles and there aren't many female collaborations in our format so I'm really excited to be debuting it on the Billboard Awards."

Lambert, the reigning CMA and ACM Female Vocalist of the Year, will be joined on stage by her friend and six-time Grammy winner, Carrie Underwood, a finalist for the 2014 Milestone Award presented by Chevrolet, given to an innovative artist who has achieved a notable chart milestone over the past year.

ABOUT MIRANDA LAMBERT

Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter Miranda Lambert is the reigning four-time CMA and reigning five-time ACM Female Vocalist of the Year (the first time anyone has won 5 consecutive years). Her last album, Four The Record, made history when it debuted atop Billboard's Top Country Albums chart, making Miranda the first country artist in the 47-year history of the chart to have each of her first four albums debut at # 1. All four of those albums have also been certified Platinum, which is the name of her fifth studio album, due out June 3rd.

The first single off of Platinum, "Automatic," is Miranda's highest charting first week single to date. Written by Miranda, Nicolle Galyon and Natalie Hemby, the autobiographical song reflects on the days of pay phones, learning to drive a stick shift, driving to Dallas to buy an Easter dress, recording the country countdown on her cassette recorder and more.

In addition to her award winning music, Miranda has designed a shoe line that is available at DSW and other retailers across the country. She also dedicates much of her time to her MuttNation Foundation. The foundation has raised more than $1.5 million to aid organizations and governmental institutions or entities whose purpose is to build animal shelters for better care, increase pet adoption and encourage responsible pet guardianship, rehabilitate sick or unsocialized animals, fund spay/neuter programs, reduce/eliminate euthanasia of healthy animals. She also owns two life style boutiques, general stores she named, The Pink Pistol. The stores are located in her hometown of Lindale, TX and Tishomingo, OK.
