Miranda Lambert has churned out yet another award-winning song with “Mama’s Broken Heart.” The hit song earned the Single Record of the Year award at the 49th annual ACM Awards on Sunday, April 6.

Miranda Lambert was backstage prepared to perform when her husband, Blake Shelton, had the honor of announcing her as the winner. After receiving a quick kiss on the temple from Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert stepped up to accept her award.

She said, “Thank you. That’s awesome!” Miranda Lambert went on to thank her producers, songwriter Kacey Musgraves, and the musicians who performed on the record.

She wrapped up her speech with, “Thanks to the fans for loving it.”

Fans did indeed love “Mama’s Broken Heart.” In 2013, the song reached #2 on the Billboard Country Airplay and Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. The video that accompanied the song was one of Miranda Lambert’s best, showing off her acting skills as a southern belle trying to hold it together during the emotional fallout of a breakup.

Miranda Lambert’s “Mama’s Broken Heart” won Single of the Year at the ACMs, beating out
the following equally great songs:

“Cruise” - Florida Georgia Line
“Highway Don’t Care” - Tim McGraw, Taylor Swift, Keith Urban
“I Drive Your Truck” - Lee Brice
“Wagon Wheel” - Darius Rucker and Lady Antebellum
