Miranda Lambert's plane had to make an emergency landing Tuesday in Clarksburg, W.Va., after losing pressure during her flight from New York City to Nashville.

The private jet carrying the country music star spent about three hours on the ground before resuming its trip, Lambert's publicist Wes Vause told the Associated Press.

While the problem was being handled, Lambert and friends hung out with firefighters, even trying on their hazmat suits and posting pictures to Instagram.

Who knew emergency landings were so jocular?

"All in all, it was a pretty good day," Vause said, with a laugh.

Lambert is busy launching her fifth album. She appeared on Wednesday night's CMT Music Awards and will team with husband Blake Shelton on Friday at the CMA Music Festival, then travel Saturday to Dallas for George Strait's final concert.
