Miranda Lambert Makes History with Eighth Consecutive Win at ACM Awards


Miranda Lambert made history at Sunday night’s (02Apr17) Academy Of Country Music Awards when she became the first-ever singer to win the Female Vocalist of the Year gong eight years running.

The 33-year-old songstress has won the award every year since 2009 and tied for the honor with Reba McEntire in 2016. This year it was all Miranda though, with the Little Red Wagon star beating Carrie Underwood, Kacey Musgraves, Kelsea Ballerini and Maren Morris to be named the winner.

Taking to the stage to accept the prize, Miranda praised her fellow female country singers making a name for themselves in the industry, telling the audience: “Thank you so much guys. It really means the world to me. Carrie can see me under the table. We’ve agreed on that! I’m just glad to see females kicking ass these days. I’m so proud to be a part of that. So cheers to all of us girls out there dreaming. Thanks fans, thanks ACMs, thanks to my family and friends… I love you all.”


Miranda, who attended the ceremony at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena with boyfriend Anderson East, also took home the Album of the Year prize for her record The Weight of These Wings.
