Miranda Lambert is blasting back against "cowardly" online bullies.

Fed up by nasty comments left beneath an Instagram photo of her and her boyfriend, R&B musician Anderson East, at the 2016 CMA Awards, the country star shared a candid note on a follow-up photo of her riding her horse, Leiani.

"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," Lambert revealed in the peaceful photo's lengthy caption.

The 32-year-old "Vice" singer said it was a "blessing" to ride Leiani on her Tennessee farm while wearing "yoga pants and no make-up."

But, the night before, wrote the singer, "I was dolled up and 'out on the town' with my sweet man at the CMA awards in Nashville."

Lambert, whose four-year marriage to country singer Blake Shelton ended in July 2015, said she was "excited" about attending the show with 28-year-old East, her beau of one year.

But after she shared a chic red-carpet photo of them on Instagram, she was upset by a flurry of "judgmental and negative" comments.

The irate singer said the rude remarks were left by "cowardly people who hide behind keyboards."

"What a bunch of bull----" she wrote.

Lambert included a quote by the late poet Maya Angelou that urged people to pay attention to "the power of words," and signed off by sarcastically thanking online bullies for "reminding me why I read books, write songs, and spend most of my time with animals and people I trust and love."
