Miranda Lambert Will Create a ‘Revolution’ on the ACM Awards
Miranda Lambert goes into Sunday's ACM Awards with six nominations, including Top Female Vocalist. She is tied with label mate Carrie Underwood, who is also up for six awards. Lady Antebellum lead the list with seven.
The Texas native is once again up for Album of the Year for 'Revolution.' It's an award she won in 2008 for 'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,' and one of the nominations she is most honored to receive. "We made it like a record," says Miranda. "We went in for a week and cut an album. We didn't go in for a day and cut a single or an album track or just a random song to stick somewhere at number seven. Every song matters. Every song is part of a picture, and if one's missing, the picture's not complete. This is really a piece of art, and I'm really proud of it."
Miranda's recent No. 1 song, 'White Liar,' is featured in three categories: Single, Song and Video of the Year. "It's definitely a song that I think is relatable and kind of a good-feelin' song, but also with a little bit of a cut to it," the singer-songwriter laughs. "That's what country music is. About lying and cheating and drinking and the Lord. That's what it is. That's what it's always been ... that's why I love country music." Miranda is also up for an award as a co-writer on the song.
Tune in to the 45th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday, April 18, to catch Miranda and many of your favorite country artists. The ACM Awards will be broadcast live from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas at 8:00 PM ET/(delayed PT) on CBS.
