The seventh time is still a charm for Miranda Lambert as she took home the trophy for Female Vocalist of the Year for the seventh straight time at the 51st Annual ACM Awards.
Not that Miranda isn’t always gracious and humble when she accepts an award, but this year was a little different. After spending a few minutes on stage with Carrie Underwood during the ACM Party for a Cause, on the night only women took the stage, she seemed to be pretty affected by the year women have had in country music. The award for Female Vocalist of the Year also followed one of the best moments of the evening with Carrie’s incredible performance of “Church Bells.“
Miranda started her acceptance speech by saying Carrie is “literally the perfect singer” and followed it with, “I love seeing a bunch of new country girls up here shining and singing their great songs they wrote themselves, I’m really excited for women in country music and I’m glad to be here as one of them.” She was referencing Cam’s ethereal performance of her Song of the Year nominated, “Burning House” and Kelsea Ballerini’s smart and charming “Peter Pan.”
Miranda also took home a trophy for Vocal Collaboration for “Smokin’ and Drinkin'” with Little Big Town.
