Miranda Lambert Accepts 2014 ACM Female Vocalist of the Year for Friend
Miranda Lambert‘s hands are full tonight as she took home another 2014 ACM Award when she was named the winner of the Female Vocalist of the Year.
Trisha Yearwood presented Lambert with her award saying she was glad she was just opening the envelope, not nervously competing against the other talented women. This category was definitely full of talented women. Sheryl Crow, Kacey Musgraves, Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood were all up against Lambert for the big female award.
When Lambert heard her name, she gave Crow a big hug backstage before walking on to the stage. “I cannot believe this,” Lambert said with a stunned look on her face. “I really didn’t expect it y’all. Thank you so much.”
She took a moment to compliment all the other women who were nominated. “I was just hanging out with Trisha Yearwood back there,” she said. “Holy crap. And I was standing next to Sheryl Crow, [a] complete and utter rockstar.” Lambert went on to say that she’d also grown up with Musgraves and called Underwood a “phenomenon.”
“Thank you fans,” Lambert gushed. “Thank you country music.” She then dedicated her award to a good friend of her that was going through a hard time. “This one’s for y’all tonight,” she said with the sweet dedication.
