With the release of her new single and announcment of her new album, Platinum, this year Miranda Lambert managed to snag her 5th consecutive Female Vocalist of the Year award.
“Tonight has not even begun to sink in yet. It probably won’t for a week,” said Miranda. “I can’t believe that this is my job. I got a picture with George Strait and Garth Brooks, I hung out with Trisha Yearwood and practically stalked Faith Hill, it was a great night,” she laughed.
In addition to winning Female Vocalist of the Year Lambert also won Single Record of the Year (“Mama’s Broken Heart”) and Vocal Event of the Year, together with Keith Urban, for “We Were Us”. She performed her single “Automatic” for the first time on national television, she had the honor of paying tribute to her hero Merle Haggard on his prolific 50 years in country music by performing “Tonight the Bottle Let Me Down” and “I’m a Lonesome Fugitive” with George Strait
