Country superstar Miranda Lambert won Female Vocalist of the Year at the 2012 CMA Awards on Thursday night, racking up her third consecutive win in that category.

Fresh from a victory earlier in the night for Song of the Year for ‘Over You’ with husband Blake Shelton, Lambert exclaimed, “Holy crap — I don’t necessarily deserve this, but I’ll sure take it.”  In reference to her tears after her earlier win, she added, “I’m not gonna cry again. . . not gonna cry again.”

The hot country star paid tribute to her fellow nominees Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Martina McBride and Kelly Clarkson, saying, “I can’t believe I’m standing up here holding this right now.”

Lambert, who was nominated in a total of four categories, recently announced a new tour with Dierks Bentley. She and Shelton both won their respective vocalist categories for a third straight year. Shelton also won for Entertainer of the Year.
