Miranda Lambert has a lot of fans but perhaps none more adorable and enthusiastic than reality TV star Alana Thompson, better known as the star of TLC's Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
Posting a photo of the two on her Twitter account Thursday, Lambert, 29, also quoted the young star's catch phrase, writing, "You better REDNECKONIZE!"
Lambert actually got to meet all of the Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo TV family backstage before her Macon, Ga., concert. In another Twitter photo (see it below), Lambert joined Alana, June, Shannon and father Mike Thompson, also known to viewers as "Sugar Bear," and the star's three older sisters.

Honey Boo Boo's Mama June says she won't squander the payoff from her family's hit television show on pricey Hollywood splurges.
She may seem like a redneck on TV, but Mama June tells TMZ.com that she's using her hillbilly common sense to put most of the show's earnings in a trust fund for her four daughters and granddaughter – and it won't be available to them until they turn 21. The only allowances are for medical emergencies and school.
"I want my kids to look back and say, 'Mama played it smart. Not like those other reality TV people,'" Mama June said.
