Miranda Lambert appreciates her status as a multiple award nominee and winner even more so because she grew up watching these same shows and dreaming about a career in music. Miranda tells us: “Yes, I used to watch all the award shows. I would get a yellow tablet and write down all the nominees and circle who I thought was gonna win. And sit in front of the TV and, like, bet myself on if I was right or not (laughs).”

Miranda is up for seven ACM Awards this weekend, including Entertainer, Female Vocalist, Single Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Video of the Year for “Mama’s Broken Heart,” and twice for Vocal Event of the Year for both “We Were Us” with Keith Urban and Blake Shelton‘s “Boys ‘Round Here” as part of the Pistol Annies. Miranda is the reigning ACM Female Vocalist of the Year.

George Strait is once again up for Entertainer of the Year at the ACM Awards this weekend and has won the ACM award once before, in 1989. With another hit on the radio with “I Got a Car” and the award nominations and wins, George tells us he’s thrilled to still be a viable act. “To be a part of the business and nominated for awards and current and everything, it’s just unbelievable. And I’m enjoying every bit of it, and I’m gonna keep on doing it for as long as I can.”

The ACM Awards will take place in Las Vegas on Sunday (April 6th). The show will be broadcast live on CBS 62 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
