Miranda Lambert Wins 2017 ACM Awards Female Vocalist of the Year
Lambert had a huge night at the 2017 ACMs, first turning in a sensitive solo acoustic performance of "Tin Man" that brought the house down, then winning Album of the Year honors for her most recent album, the ambitious double-disc project The Weight of These Wings.
The beaming singer took the stage to accept her most recent Female Vocalist award dressed in a black pantsuit with white pinstripes, and she humbly acknowledged the other females in the category, who included Kelsea Ballerini, Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves and Carrie Underwood.
"Carrie can sing me under the table, we've agreed on that," Lambert said, saying the award "means the world to me."
"I'm just glad to see females kicking ass these days," she added. "I'm proud to be part of that. So cheers to all of us girls who are dreaming! Thanks fans, thanks ACMs, thanks family and friends," she said before thanking her professional team.
The Weight of These Wings draws from Lambert's divorce from Blake Shelton, and she admits it wasn't easy to work on for her.
“Some of it was not fun,” she tells Taste of Country with a laugh. “But you’ve got to let life lead the art, and that’s what I did. It’s kind of just my diary of the last couple of years, really.”
