Miranda Lambert Reacts to ACM Awards Nominations, Can’t Believe This Is Her Life
Miranda Lambert may be the four-time and reigning ACM Female Vocalist of the Year, but that doesn’t mean she’s immune to the excitement of it all — especially when she’s been nominated for a whopping seven awards!
Lambert, whose name is heavy among the 2014 ACM Awards nominees announced Wednesday (Jan. 29), is beyond satisfied with her achievement.
“I’m beside myself about the ACM nominations,” she admits. “Every single time I see my name on any ballot I still get butterflies and can’t believe sometimes that this is my life.”
“Especially being nominated for Entertainer of the Year!” she adds. “As a female artist, it has been a long time goal for me to be in this category. And such great company too!”
Lambert is nominated for the night’s top award alongside her hubby Blake Shelton, Taylor Swift, Luke Bryan and George Strait. That’s certainly a tough crowd to be up against, and Lambert attributes her accomplishment of even being nominated to her hard work.
“I work hard on my craft and my art, and to be nominated alongside these incredible artists that are my friends and peers, means the world to me,” the star shares. “The road is my other home and the band and crew are my family. So I share this nomination proudly with them!”
Adds the bubbly gal, “All the miles have paid off! Cheers y’all! Girl power!”
Lambert’s other nominations include Single, Song and Video of the Year for her Platinum-selling hit ‘Mama’s Broken Heart.’ She’s also up for two awards in the Vocal Event of the Year category, which includes her hit with Keith Urban, ‘We Were Us,’ and her collaboration with Pistol Annies on Shelton’s ‘Boys ‘Round Here.’
Seeing her name span so many categories is a visual reminder that the sassy singer is one of the hardest-working in the industry, and her work has definitely paid off. It may even pay off in hardware!
Tune in to see if Lambert nabs any of her seven nominations at the 2014 ACM Awards, airing live from Las Vegas on Sunday, April 6 on CBS at 8PM ET.
