While performing Saturday (July 5) at the Grand Casino MN in Hinckley, Minnesota, Miranda Lambert spotted a young girl dressed for the occasion in a sparkly pink dress, hot pink cowboy boots, and a cowboy hat. The girl’s mother, Kim Peterson, shared a video of the special moment to Instagram.

“The cutest little cowgirl is wearing her hot pink boots, I just gotta hug her,” said the GRAMMY winner.

The girl’s mother is heard screaming, “Her name’s Miranda!” as crowd members lift the little girl onto the stage.

Lambert learns that information just seconds later, when she leans down and gently asks, “What’s your name?” Delighted by the answer, the “Hell on Heels” singer goes in for a second hug.

“I absolutely love your jacket,” Lambert continues. “Did your mom make it? … Your mom’s awesome.”

The ACM Award winner even shared footage of the meeting to her own Instagram page. “I met the cutest lil gal also named MIRANDA last night,” the country star wrote. “She stole the show and my heart!”
