Miranda Lambert’s #1 ACM Award Nominee
Gotta love that Miranda is the #1 Nominee!
Miranda Lambert‘s star ascended even higher Tuesday (Feb. 1) when she received seven nominations to emerge as the top nominee at the 46th annual Academy of Country Music Awards.
She and Ronnie Dunn announced the nominees during an early morning press conference at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in downtown Nashville. Part of the announcement aired live on The Early Show on CBS.
The ACM’s tally includes multiple nominations for artists who write their own songs or produce their own records, but Lambert’s nominations are all as an artist in six separate categories. In addition to her first ACM entertainer of the year award, she’s also up for top female vocalist — an honor she won last year. She’s also nominated for single record of the year and song of the year for “The House That Built Me,” which also netted a song of the year nomination for songwriters Tom Douglas and Allen Shamblin. Lambert is included in the vocal event of the year division for her collaboration with Sheryl Crow and Loretta Lynn on “Coal Miner’s Daughter.” She also received two nominations for video of the year — for “Only Prettier” and “The House That Built Me.”
