Being a celebrity isn’t all glitz and glam. Even the biggest stars have to deal with flight cancelations, traffic, and wardrobe malfunctions. Only, when those things happen to celebrities, everyone is watching. That’s when a nanny bag filled with emergency alcohol comes in handy to turn minor tribulation into triumph.

Case in point? Country singer Miranda Lambert.

“My assistant packs — I call it my nanny bag — she packs a bag of liquor for emergencies, for meltdowns and things like that,” Lambert told Sounds of Nashville.

Lambert knows the power of the nanny bag well. On April 2, her flight to Las Vegas for the American Country Music Awards was canceled. Skipping it wasn’t an option, but getting there was a problem. So her and her crew rented out a tour bus to drive the 1,500-plus miles to the City of Sin. And you can bet what was previously a problem turned into a party.

“I’m like okay, we’re good, I’m golden,” Lambert said. “We just need a cooler of ice and we’re going. It was fun.”

And it’s a good thing she made it — Lambert won album of the year and female vocalist of the year.

It’s a lesson we can all learn from: Make the best of every situation, think on your feet, and always be ready to party.
