CMA Awards 2010 – Miranda Lambert was praised by legendary country star, Loretta Lynn after she presented the 27-year-old artist with Female Vocalist of the Year. The award was announced moments after Lambert sang “Coal Miner’s Daughter” with Sheryl Crow.
Lambert also won CMAs 2010 Album of the Year and Video of the Year.
Miranda Lambert had quite the night at the CMAs, sharing the spotlight with her fiance, Blake Shelton who won CMA Awards including Male Vocalist of the Year and Musical Event of the Year (shared with Trace Adkins in “Hillbilly Bone”).
Lambert was remarkable in her performances and candor as admiring Loretta Lynn for all she’s contributed to the country music industry and all that the iconic artist has done for women. Miranda said she wants to continue doing all she can for women in country music. Women have a lot of fine artists to look up to.
If the honor of singing one of Lynn’s songs and winning coveted awards wasn’t enough for the young country crooner, country music’s most iconic performers gave her the biggest compliment a musician can get in Nashville.”Nobody in country music is more country than Miranda,” Loretta Lynn said. Miranda Lambert proves to have what it takes to be in the same league as Loretta Lynn. Her recognition will make her a winning start to come in every year at the CMA Awards in country music.
