Miranda Lambert Wins Four ACM Awards For “Over You”By: Sean Patterson - April 8, 2013
The 48th Academy of Country Music Awards were held this weekend in Las Vegas. While co-host of the ceremonies Luke Bryan walked away with the Entertainer of the Year award, singer Miranda Lambert won four different awards Sunday night, shutting out Taylor Swift, who was nominated for five awards.
Lambert, who is famously married to ACM Awards co-host Blake Shelton, won awards for both writing and performing the song “Over You.” The song also won the Single of the Year Award. Lambert also won the award for Female Vocalist of the Year, an award she has won for four years running. Reba McEntire and Loretta Lynn are the only other artists to have won the Female Vocalist of the Year award four or more times.
Lambert was also nominated for Entertainer of the Year, the award that Bryan won.
“I can’t comprehend anything that’s happening right now,” said Lambert shortly after the awards ceremony. “I actually voted for, I was rooting for Carrie [Underwood], because I’m such a fan of hers and I’m so jealous of her voice and her legs and everything else she has.”
