Miranda Lambert Wins ACM Honors Milestone Award: 'I'll Never Get Over It'

Miranda Lambert happily hits the carpet alongside her husband Brendan McLoughlin while attending the 2019 ACM Honors Ceremony at the Ryman Auditorium on Wednesday night (August 21) in Nashville, Tenn.

The 35-year-old country singer was in attendance to receive The Gene Weed Milestone Award, which was created to acknowledge the person in country music who had an unprecedented and outstanding year of achievements.

Keith Urban presented Lambert with the award, and in his glowing introductory speech, he told the crowd: “She did what I used to do: whoever I was opening for, I used to sit in front of the stage and watch every show and I’d be taking mental notes,” he said. “She was at the front of my show every night we played. And I remember thinking, ’I know that person really well.’”

Martina McBride and Maddie & Tae were also in attendance to show their support.

“I am so humbled. I’m standing on this Ryman stage in front of one of my heroes,” Miranda expressed during her speech (via CMT). “I mostly just want to thank Nashville, and the people who move here because they loved country music. I couldn’t believe that we’d get to live this amazing life and follow our dreams and just be part of this awesome family. Some days it feels like I’ve been doing it for two days, and some days it feels like 200 years. And I’ll never get over it.”

Miranda Lambert recently dropped her new song “Bluebird,” which will be featured on her upcoming seventh studio album Wildcard.

FYI: Miranda is carrying a Tyler Ellis handbag.
