Miranda Lambert’s Platinum has notched its first chart-topping single. “Automatic,” a nostalgic tune about enjoying life’s slower pace, debuted at Number 26 on the Billboard country charts back in February, and while it rests at Number Three on Billboard‘s Country Airplay chart, it has already reached Number One on the competing Mediabase chart.

Lambert has had a busy week since the release of her fifth album, Platinum, last Tuesday. She made high-profile appearances on the CMT Music Awards, The View and The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, and at the 2014 CMA Music Festival and George Strait’s farewell show in Arlington, Texas, where she joined the King of Country for a surprise rendition of “How ‘Bout them Cowgirls.”

Meanwhile, “Somethin’ Bad” — her hell-raising duet with Carrie Underwood — sits at Number 36, giving Lambert two simultaneous tunes in Billboard‘s Country Top 40. So much for enjoying a slower pace.

“Automatic” marks the sixth chart-topper for Lambert, Rolling Stone‘s current cover star. To celebrate, she’ll hit the road on July 10th for the start of her Platinum Tour.
