ACM Awards 2018: Miranda Lambert creates history with her Female Vocalist of the Year win
While accepting the award, the 34-year-old country singer took to the stage to thank fans for their undivided support through the hard times.
Miranda Lambert sure created history with her win at the 2018 edition of the Academy of Country Music Awards, and congratulations for the singer are in order. The talented musician was able to come out ahead of other enormously popular nominees, Kelsea Ballerini, Maren Morris, Carrie Underwood and Reba McEntire, and seal her win for the ninth year in a row.
"I cannot believe this. I really can't. Thank you so much. I love country music. It is my entire life. I dedicate everything I have to it and for y'all to care so much about what I'm doing, I will never, ever take it for granted," Miranda shared with the audience. "Thank you so, so much. Praise Jesus, thank y'all."
Earlier in the night, Miranda also won Song of the Year for "Tin Man." While accepting the award, the 34-year-old country singer took to the stage to thank fans for their undivided support through the hard times.
“Thank you guys so much for sharing my broken heart with me,” Lambert said in her acceptance speech for her record-breaking win, making her the artist to beat with the most ACMs ever: 30 victories. In the process, she also broke her long-time tie with Brooks & Dunn.
The single, which has been featured on her latest album: 'The Weight of These Wings', was written sometime after her 2015 divorce from musician Blake Shelton. Since then, Miranda moved on to date Anderson East, but the pair recently broke-up after being together for more than two years.
However, as she moved on with her acceptance speech, fans were quick to notice the singer give a subtle mention to her ex-husband Blake Shelton, and they took to social media to express their emotions.
I hope Blake Shelton eats his heart out every time he sees Miranda Lambert on stage— Kylee (@kyleeschhultz) April 16, 2018
"Thanks for sharing my broken heart with me" says Miranda Lambert after winning song of the year, but all I heard was "fuck you, Blake Shelton." #ACMawards— Savannah Landry (@slandry37) April 16, 2018
Why @mirandalambert didn’t point at Blake during her acceptance speech and say “bless your heart” is beyond me.— Cheryl Irby (@cherylirby) April 16, 2018
