Miranda Lambert’s ‘Mama’s Broken Heart’ Wins 2014 Single Record of the Year ACM Award
Miranda Lambert‘s celebrated smash hit ‘Mama’s Broken Heart’ won yet another honor Sunday night (April 6), capturing the 2014 ACM Award for Single Record of the Year.
Lambert’s victory created a bit of an odd scene, because she was presented the award by her husband Blake Shelton, who happened to be dressed as a member of Daft Punk at the time. Shelton and fellow co-host Luke Bryan had come onstage dressed as the helmet-wearing electronic dance music duo before removing their headgear to announce the winner.
Lambert, who collected seven ACM nominations this year, rattled off her thank you list in record time and mentioned the track’s songwriters, Kacey Musgraves, Shane McAnally and Brandy Clark. Lambert had already won this award in 2011 for ‘The House That Built Me’ and last year for ‘Over You.’
‘Mama’s Broken Heart’ beat out an impressive collection of hits, including Florida Georgia Line‘s ‘Cruise,’ Lee Brice‘s ‘I Drive Your Truck,’ Darius Rucker‘s ‘Wagon Wheel,’ and the Tim McGraw–Taylor Swift–Keith Urban collaboration ‘Highway Don’t Care.’
