Miranda Lambert Wins Album of the Year at 2012 ACM Awards
Miranda Lambert had some stiff competition at the 2012 ACM Awards, but that didn’t stop the fiery country songstress from taking the Album of the Year award at this year’s show in Las Vegas. Lambert won the distinction for her chart-topping 2011 album, ‘Four the Record,’ which boasts singles such as ‘Baggage Claim’ and ‘Over You.’
Dressed in a gold floor-length gown, Lambert looked very glam as she went up to accept her award. She was genuinely shocked when her name was announced, and she hugged fellow nominees like Lady Antebellum and Jason Aldean before she made her way to the podium for her speech.
Lambert had only one question when she began speaking into the mic: “Seriously?” She then came back to reality and gave props to the other nominees by saying, “Thank so you much. I own every record in this category and I keep listening and listening and thinking, ‘I’m never gonna get it.'” She continued, “My album’s are my babies. It’s what makes me wake up in the morning… Thank y’all so much, I really appreciate it.”
Lambert beat out Eric Church (‘Chief’), Kenny Chesney (‘Hemingway’s Whiskey’), Jason Aldean (‘My Kinda Party’), and Lady Antebellum (‘Own the Night’) for her 2012 Album of the Year ACM Award. Congratulations, Miranda!
