Miranda Lambert Makes ACM Awards History, Delivers Heartwarming Speech: ‘I Cannot Believe This’

Miranda Lambert made ACM Awards history Sunday night as she bagged her 30th, 31st, and 32nd gongs at the Las Vegas ceremony.

The 34-year-old became the first artist to win the most ACMs ever with over 30 victories after the singer managed to break her tie with Brooks & Dunn, who have 29 wins.

As Lambert took the stage after bagging the Song of the Year award for “Tin Man”, she told the crowd: “Thank you guys so much sharing my broken heart with me.”

The much-loved single, which saw Lambert take home two awards because she’s both the artist and the songwriter, was written shortly after her 2015 divorce from Blake Shelton. She has since dated Anderson East but the pair recently split after more than two years together.

The country star also took home the award for Female Vocalist of the Year for the ninth year running.

Lambert was up against the likes of Kelsea Ballerini, Reba McEntire, and Carrie Underwood in the competitive category.

She gushed, “I cannot believe this. I really can’t. Thank you so much. I love country music. It is my entire life. I dedicate everything I have to it and for y’all to care so much about what I’m doing, I will never, ever take it for granted. Thank you so, so much. Praise Jesus, thank y’all.”

Sunday night’s show also saw Jason Aldean be honoured with the Entertainer of the Year award.

The ceremony marked country music’s return to Las Vegas six months after the horrific mass shooting that saw a lone gunman kill 58 people at the Route 91 Harvest festival.
