Miranda Lambert Wins Second ACM Award
Singer Lands Coveted Female Vocalist Trophy
Miranda Lambert picked up her second ACM Award of the night when Ashton Kutcher—wearing the kind of comical cowboy outfit that makes real fans of the format roll their eyes—announced her name as the winner in the female vocalist of the year category. Earlier in the evening she’d won for album of the year.
Onstage, Lambert said, “Thank you Jesus for giving me this gift I can share with all my fans.” She also expressed her pride in the county music industry, saying, “I’m such a country fan, and I’m so proud of country music. We deserve this [night].”
Later in the media room, Lambert’s husband, Blake Shelton, said, “As a fellow artist, it’s refreshing to see Miranda win those awards, especially album of the year. I’ve never even been nominated for album of the year.”
But, he confessed, “I was pissed she wasn’t in entertainer of the year.
I’m looking forward to seeing her get recognized or that as well.”
I agree with Blake congrats to Miranda I've been a long time fan. I think she should have been entertainer of the year or at least nominated.
I'm sorry I have nothing against Taylor Swift she seems like a nice girl but she doesn't have the voice of a Miranda Lambert who stuck to her true self and the music she wanted to write and sing. Sara Evans, Martina McBride, and Faith Hill, can sing circles around Taylor Swift. Some recognition is warranted for Taylor Swift, she puts on some cute and funny shows with her songs but she's getting like the Kardashians too much exposure and not enough to warrant it all. She's for one generation I don't relate to her songs and even if I did she's not that strong of a singer. It's always the new young one and that's okay but it's gone too far with her. Best to her in the future but others need to be recognized.
