Prepare to be shocked: Miranda Lambert is promising big things at the Country Music Awards Thursday night. Especially when it comes to her look.

“My dress is custom-made,” she told PEOPLE Tuesday at the BMI Country Awards in Nashville. “It is so awesome and I know it will be in a museum one day, so I have to be careful with it. It’s the most awesome thing I’m ever going to wear.”

Lambert’s Pistol Annies bandmates, Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley, vouched for the gown’s awesomeness, as well.

“We saw a picture, and she’s right, it’s amazing,” Presley said. “Best dress ever,” Monroe added.

“I love it because it’s very personal to me — it has a lot of meaning for me,” Lambert continued. “No one has seen it [besides Monroe and Presley], so I’m not saying anything else. The big reveal is on stage Thursday night!”

Lambert’s look will also include her shorter new hairstyle, which she debuted on Twitter last week. “I just got to where I was living with extensions in and out and it was so much drama,” she explained to PEOPLE Wednesday during the unveiling of her first ‘Got Milk?’ ad in Nashville. “So I went a little bit darker and got the extensions out … and I had to get it cut a little bit when I got all the weave out.”

But don’t think that weave was just tossed aside unceremoniously. “We had a funeral for my weave!” Lambert exclaimed. “She had to go to the trash.”

Using photos of Reese Witherspoon as inspiration — “She’s got a lot of great hairstyles,” Lambert said — the country singer picked a new ‘do, and now has the option to use clip-in extensions, though she seemingly prefers her more natural, low-maintenance look. “It’s actually easier to head bang with less hair,” she joked.

Her pals (and presumably her husband, Blake Shelton) are loving the sweet style, too. “A couple of my best friends in the world were like, ‘We love your short hair, you look more feisty!’” Lambert said. “If my best friends love it then I’m going to [keep it].”

Catch Lambert on the CMA Awards tonight at 8 p.m. ET on ABC, and stay with for continuing live and morning-after coverage of the event!

just saw her new hair and its gorgeous

Love her. She doesn’t care about being stick skinny and is just really down to earth. To the comment she slept with her husband while he was previously a lil googling doll, even the ex stated that they got together AFTER they split.

Kim on

The actual thing is never quite as great as the build up. So this better be some dress.

Ginger on

I don’t like her and never have and it is all because she has such an arrogant attitude.

Sue Z. Q. on

Ok I’m disappointed. She looks great, but no different than her usual award show look. :/

ChitChat on

Miranda has an over inflated ego. Her dress is not in any way stunning. Carrie Underwood looks stunning. Sorry Mirander :(

V on

Her boobs are falling out of her dress. She needs a new stylist.

Thunder on

WOW! I just tuned in to see what was going on and she’s on right now and those pants look horrible on her. I am not calling her fat, but she has got a huge arse and thunder thighs! She looks much better in dresses.

selena on

I just saw her perform and she really does need to get over herself. She looked like an overweight parrot. Does she not have any mirrors?
