Miranda Lamberttook home Song of the Year honors at the 2015 ACM Awards on Sunday night (April 19) for her hit song, "Automatic."

"Thank y'all so much! It's good to be home tonight," she told the audience at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. She went on to thank her co-writers, Natalie Hemby and Nicolle Galyon, for helping her write the song, which was the lead single from her current album, Platinum.

Hemby took the mic to offer an emotional thanks to Lambert, saying she hoped she could "be your Dean Dillon, since you're my George Strait."

The song takes a wistful look back at times gone by and revealed a new maturity in Lambert's work. She was the most-nominated artist at the 2015 ACMs, with a total of eight, including Album, Female Vocalist and even Entertainer of the Year.

The latter is one Lambert admits makes her a little nervous.

“That’s the one you sort of think about whenever you’re 20 years old and starting this whole process. You think, ‘I want to nominated for Entertainer of the Year one day,’” she says. “And it’s scary, you know? It’s just such a huge category. Everybody in it deserves it. I mean, you don’t get there unless you work your butt off for all these years and so, I’m really proud to be the only female. I mean, I feel like I’m sort of waving the flag for all the other female artists who are up and coming. It’s a struggle right now with female artists and country.”
