Miranda Lambert Isn’t Sure She Deserves to Win Entertainer of the Year at the ACMs

Even though she is a platinum-selling artist with a Grammy, Miranda Lambert remains humble about being nominated for Entertainer of the Year at this year’s Academy of Country Music Awards. In fact, she says she doesn’t think she deserves it.

“It’s a little bit surreal because it’s one of the things that I set as a goal for myself and here it is,” 27-year-old Lambert says of being nominated. “I’m not sure I deserve to win this year, but I’m definitely glad to be in the category.”

Lambert reveals that taking home the Entertainer of the Year prize has been something she’s wanted since she started. “I said I want to be in the next 10 years nominated for Entertainer of the Year. A lot of the goals I set for myself have happened in 2010 and now this year,” she says. “So, I’ve started thinking about making some new ones.”

Some of those new goals might include getting married and working on a new album — both of which she will accomplish this year. The Texas native’s hubby-to-be, Blake Shelton, is co-hosting the ACMs, so that alone makes Lambert happy. “We always hope that one of us will get to hand the other one an award, which would be amazing, obviously,” she admits. “This year, I probably won’t see him because he’s going to be real busy because he’s hosting.”

We’re sure Lambert will get to graze hands with her man at some point on April 3. In all, the ‘Famous in a Small Town’ singer is up for seven awards — including Entertainer of the Year, up against Jason Aldean, Toby Keith, Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, and Taylor Swift.

The ACMs air live on CBS tomorrow, April 3.
