It was announced this week that MuttNation raised over $80,000.

“We knew people needed to come first, but MuttNation is here because we have to watch over the animals, too,” Lambert said. “My heart is filled with both sadness for everyone who suffered—and with gratitude for everyone who has stepped up."

The money went to the following organizations: Agape Animal Rescue, Crossroads Campus, Friends of MACC, Nashville Humane Association, the Pet Community Center, Putnam County Humane, the Putnam TN Disaster Animal Relief Team (DART) and the Wilson County DART.

Lambert has been in quarantine with her husband Brendan McLoughlin on their farm in Tennessee. Last week, she appeared on "The Tonight Show" to perform a special version of her single "Bluebird."

"I think it's really cool that you're doing it from home. I'm coming to y'all from my little writing nook in Tennessee, I'm gonna do an acoustic version of my song 'Bluebird,'" she said during her appearance. "I want to send this one especially out to the first responders and health care workers and the grocery store people that are keeping us safe and fed. We're praying for y'all and we're so thankful for you and you're all heroes. Hopefully we're almost through this thing. Don't forget to keep a bluebird in your heart."

Lambert also recently revealed that she and her husband plan on doing some traveling in their new Airsteam to get out of the house and back on the road.

"Sunday thoughts. When people ask me questions about all the traveling I’ve done, my answer is pretty much the same every time," Lambert captioned a gallery of photos on Instagram, which includes a video tour of the inside. "'I’ve been everywhere but I haven’t seen much of anything.' I’ve been touring for 19 years and most times we just roll in, play our show , and roll to the next town. I’ve only gotten to spend some real time in a few of the places I’ve been."

"Just because I can’t travel and play shows doesn’t mean I can’t travel and make music," Lambert continued. "I have the most amazing travel companion, my husband , and we decided to add a family member," she wrote before officially introducing her new addition. "Y’all Meet 'The Sheriff.' A 2020 Airstream Globetrotter. I’ve been a vintage trailer collector for years and this is my very first new one. I’m letting go of a few vintage to make room for adventure in this silver gem! I don’t like change but I’m learning to embrace it. Until I get get back on Elvira and tour, I’ll be pulling this rig all over the country. I know that seeing the world through the windshield again will bring creative vibes. #highwayvagabonds #livinlikehippies #BandMetour."
