Lead Nominee Miranda Lambert Feels Right at Home as the ACM Awards Take Over Texas

Image Courtesy Sony Music NashvilleMiranda Lambert grew up just 80 miles from Dallas, Texas, in the town of Lindale, so it’s only fitting she is the lead nominee going into Sunday night’s ACM Awards in nearby Arlington. Miranda has eight nods including Entertainer of the Year and Album of the Year for Platinum.

She says, “I feel like of all the times for it to be in Dallas, now is perfect for me because I’m still on a high from this album, and from everything that’s going on. Now to be like, at home doing the ACMs, is kind of crazy.”

As for that Entertainer nomination, Miranda adds, “That’s what I said from day one when I started first playing the guitar and learning to sing. It was like, I really wanna be — I at least want to be nominated for Entertainer of the Year at some point. Winning would be great, too.”

Miranda is also a favorite to win her sixth consecutive Female Vocalist of the Year trophy this weekend. Look for her to perform on the 50th Annual ACM Awards Sunday night at 8 ET on CBS.
