Miranda Lambert Still in Shock Over ACM Nominations
“It was crazy the way I found out, because I was at the CBS ‘Early Show’ with Blake [Shelton], just being the supportive girlfriend,” Miranda tells The Boot. “[I] got up early and I was proud because his record was coming out. Not only did I get to hear the nominations in person, but Reba McEntire and my own boyfriend were the ones calling out my name.”
Now that she’s had a couple of weeks to let the news sink in, she still can’t believe her name appears in certain categories. “The most shocking to me was Song of the Year, because I didn’t think I had the Song of the Year-type song, because I always think those are inspirational and have some message,” the Texan explains. “And ‘White Liar‘ is not the one I thought would be, ‘The House That Built Me‘ Is, but I was just shocked and surprised and so honored to have six nominations. I never would have thought that. I was just hoping for one.”
In addition to Song of the Year, for which she’s nominated as both the artist and as a writer, Miranda’s six nominations also include Top Female Vocalist, Album of the Year for ‘Revolution’ and both Single and Video of the Year for ‘White Liar.’
The 45th Annual ACM Awards will be broadcast live from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on April 18 on CBS.
