Reba McEntire, Miranda Lambert + More Will Be Honored by ACM’s ‘Girls Night Out’
The ladies of country music will be honored by the Academy of Country Music in a television special called 'Girls Night Out: Women of Country.' Reba McEntire, Miranda Lambert, Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles, Martina McBride and Carrie Underwood will all appear at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas in April to tape the event, which will award the women for their great achievements, according to Country Weekly.
McEntire, who has been active in country music for more than 30 years, has won Top Female Vocalist an astonishing seven times -- more than any other artist in the history of the ACMs -- while 27-year-old Lambert has won Album of the Year for two of her four albums. Underwood, also up for recognition, is the only female artist to have ever been awarded ACM's Entertainer of the Year award twice.
Nettles, the voice of Sugarland, will be honored for her work on the duo's signature song, 'Stay,' which she solo wrote and performed. The chart-topping ballad was awarded Song of the Year in 2007. McBride will be honored by ACM Lifting Lives for raising awareness on issues like domestic violence, through her powerful songs 'Independence Day' and 'Concrete Angel.'
ACM's 'Girls Night Out: Women of Country' will be shot on April 4 to air at a later date, but the event is open to the public. Ticket sales will benefit the ACM charity, Lifting Lives.
