Miranda Lambert Makes History at the 2017 ACM Awards

Miranda Lambert just made history at the 2017 Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday night, where she became the first-ever artist to win Female Vocalist of the Year eight consecutive years in a row.  This also breaks her tie with seven-time winner Reba McEntire as the most awarded artist in this category.

Miranda said during her acceptance speech:

 "Thank you so much guys. It really means the world to me. Carrie can see me under the table. We've agreed on that. I'm just glad to see females kicking ass these days. I'm so proud to be a part of that. So cheers to all of us girls out there dreaming. Thanks fans, thanks ACMs, thanks to my family and friends... I love you all.”

She also won Album of the Year for ‘The Weight of These Wings,’ therefore making it a category she’s never lost at the ACMs as this was the fifth consecutive album to take the award.
