Miranda Lambert Named ACM Entertainer of the Year Plus Other ACM Award Winners

258 0

LAS VEGAS (CelebrityAccess) – Miranda Lambert was named Entertainer of the Year at last night’s 57th Annual Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards. “This one goes out to all the singer-songwriter girls out there that are putting their blood, sweat, and tears into their guitar strings. We did it! This is for us,” said Lambert while accepting her award via a message from Europe, where she is headlining the C2C Festival this weekend.

The most awarded artist in ACM history would accept her award from the road, a nod to her grind and hustle, recognized by the ACM voting body and puts her in the running for the coveted Triple Crown Award. Lambert has continuously released an endless string of new music both on her own and as part of various collaborations, leading Variety to say, “we could argue that her career has been the most important country music career of the 21st century.”

Lambert also took home the ACM Award for Video of the Year in honor of her party-starting wedding collaboration with Elle King, “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home),” which is nominated for a GRAMMY in the Best Country Duo/Group Performance category at the upcoming April 3 ceremony. Lambert is also nominated for the Best Country Album GRAMMY Award, celebrating her work on The Marfa Tapes with Jack Ingram and Jon Randall – a project that was named among 2021’s best by American Songwriter, Billboard, LA Times, Rolling Stone, and TIME.

These two latest ACM Awards extend Lambert’s longstanding relationship with the Academy of Country Music with a record-extending 37 wins. She is also the recipient of the ACM 50th Anniversary Milestone Award and ACM Gene Weed Milestone Award in honor of her record-setting win count, the ACM Merle Haggard Spirit Award (presented to a singer-songwriter who is continuing Haggard’s legacy by following their own path while epitomizing his spirit through genuine performances and great storytelling) and the ACM Song of the Decade Award for “The House That Built Me.”

A known animal lover and supporter of rescues, Lambert’s MuttNation Foundation has raised over $6M since being founded in 2009. The Foundation’s mission is to promote the adoption of rescue pets, support animal shelters across the country, and emergency transport of animals during times of natural disaster.

The 57th Annual ACM’s took place last night (March 7) at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. Dolly Parton kicked things off by bringing up Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. “I don’t want to be political, and this is not; I’d rather pass a kidney stone than do that,” said Parton, who often stays away from politics. “But I want us to send our love and hope to our brothers and sisters in Ukraine.”
