Miranda Lambert has once again been nominated for the 2014 ACM Entertainer of the Year award as well as Female Vocalist of the Year, Single of the Year, Video of the Year, and Vocal Event of the Year. Miranda Lambert’s song, “Mama’s Broken Heart” also picks up the nomination for Song of the Year, an award that goes to the songwriters. The announcements were delivered via the Academy of Country Music’s Twitter and Facebook pages on January 29.
Miranda Lambert has dominated the Female Vocalist of the Year category at both the ACM and CMA Awards for the past four years, despite her shock each time her name is announced. More than once, Miranda Lambert has expressed awe of her fellow nominees and insisted it is time for someone else to win.
The Entertainer of the Year nomination is Miranda Lambert’s third in that category, but she has yet to win the top award. In 2011 she was defeated by Taylor Swift. In 2013, she lost to Luke Bryan, who could be tough to beat again this year.
In addition to Song of the Year, “Mama’s Broken Heart” got the nomination for Single of the Year and Video of the Year. Miranda Lambert’s hilarious attempt at showing a southern belle fighting with all her might to remain proper amidst a broken heart drew fans to the video by the thousands. Now, that effort has earned three ACM nominations.
Over the course of the last year, Miranda Lambert has also seen her single “Mama’s Broken Heart” climb to #2 on the Billboard Hot Country and Country Airplay charts and her album “Four the Record” be certified Platinum by the RIAA.
Miranda Lambert is currently opening for George Strait’s The Cowboy Rides Away Tour and will be playing festivals and a few dates for the Live Nation Country Megaticket later this year.
Miranda Lambert is expected to appear on the 2014 ACM Awards. Fans can tune in to CBS on April 6 to see if she wins.
