When I think of Miranda Lambert I think total GIRL POWER! Miranda has always appeared to not be one of the “mean girls” and has always been gracious for the other women around her in country music. So when fans started speculating that she totally left Taylor Swift out of her ACM acceptance speech for Female Vocalist of the Year at the ACM Awards on purpose I had to find out why!
When Miranda took the stage to receive her fifth consecutive Female Vocalist award, she acknowledged the hard work of all her fellow nominees. Well all of them except one. During her acceptance speech, she forgot to mention Taylor Swift!
Miranda did not intentionally leave Taylor out of the acceptance speech and she quickly offered an apology. During a post-awards press conference, Miranda admitted her thank-you speech misstep and said that she’s already smoothed things over with her. Miranda admitted she momentarily forgot to acknowledge Taylor because she was focused on dedicating her award to some hometown friends who just lost a child.
“I always try to acknowledge everybody in any category that I ever win” said the Automatic singer. “I know we all work our ass off … we all give 110 percent all year long, especially Taylor. She’s kind of like her own animal, she’s ridiculous.”
Fans are eagerly awaiting the release of Miranda Lambert‘s new album, Platinum. The singer is slowly released details for her June 3rd release. She wrote or co-wrote half the tracks on the album, and special guests include Carrie Underwood, The Time Jumpers, and Little Big Town. In fact, one of the songs were actually pitched to LBT first.
“Karen told me, ‘You have a song I want!,’” Lambert explains. “So I said, ‘If I cut it, will y’all sing on it?’ This was at the CMT Awards, just joking around in the dressing room. But when I went in to record it, I thought, ‘If Little Big Town wants to sing on my record, we are damn sure taking advantage of it!’ I can’t even imagine what it would sound like without them.”

Who’s excited for new music from Miranda???
Last Night, Garth Brooks honored Merle Haggard with the Crystal Milestone Award at the 2014 ACM Awards. In a tribute performance, country stars Miranda Lambert and George Strait sang “I’m A Lonesome Fugitive,” Haggard’s first hit, for the occasion.
And, because last night was also Merle Haggard’s 77th birthday, the crowd serenaded him by singing “Happy Birthday” as he made his way up to the ACM stage to accept his award. It was one of our favorite moments of the evening.
