Miranda Lambert takes a stand against social media and country stars light up Christmas in New York City.

FOX's Michelle Pollino has this week's "FOX Country":

I'm Michelle Pollino.

Miranda Lambert took to social media to chastise fans after she noticed her feed was filled with negative and judgmental posts after posting pictures from the CMA's saying, "Words are things. They have power using racial and sexual pejoratives and all that ignorance. Don't do that. Some day we'll be able to measure the power of words." And she ended her post by quoting Maya Angelou. Lambert's new album "The Weight of These Wings" debuts on Nov. 18.

And country fans don't want to miss the Christmas tree lighting at Rockefeller Center with legendary performers: Dolly Parton, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood.

The 2016 Christmas in Rockefeller Center tree lighting TV special will air on Nov. 30 on NBC and it celebrates the 84th annual lighting. Parton, Brooks and Yearwood will be joined by a host of other artists for the special event.

That's FOX Country on FOX News.

Every now and then I decide to re-join the world of social media and post something really personal. Not promoting anyone or anything. Not selling a better version of myself to anyone or trying to look cool like we all do all the time. Just a picture that either I or someone I know and care about took the time to take and see the beauty in. This is one of those moments that im proud of. My friend Tommy snapped it on a trail ride on his phone at golden hour on the farm in TN. What a blessing. I'm wearing yoga pants and no makeup and im on the back of my beloved Leiani. A Gypsy Vanner horse. '--. But... Last night I was all dolled up and "out on the town" with my sweet man at the CMA awards in Nashville. I was excited about the night and posted a picture. Just now when I looked I realized so many comments were judgmental and negative. Cowardly people hiding behind a keyboard or a cell phone writing their useless comments about our eyes and clothes and body language. What a bunch of bull shit. Thank y'all for reminding me why I read books , write songs, and spend most of my time with animals and people I trust and love. And one last thing..... "Words are things. You must be careful, careful about calling people out of their names, using racial pejoratives and sexual pejoratives and all that ignorance. Don't do that. Some day we'll be able to measure the power of words. I think they are things. They get on the walls. They get in your wallpaper. They get in your rugs, in your upholstery, and your clothes, and finally in to you." Maya Angelou
