miranda lambert cma awards 2013 female vocalist of the year Miranda Lambert thanks Blake Shelton for CMA Awards 2013 win

Miranda Lambert kept her acceptance speech short for Female Vocalist of the Year at the 2013 CMA Awards. After claiming that she didn’t expect to get the win, she made sure to thank her husband Blake Shelton and her fellow nominees.

“I really didn’t think this one was going to happen this year. I sit here every time and I’m just so thankful to be here,” she tells the gathered audience.

Acknowledging her fellow nominees like Kelly Clarkson, Kacey Musgraves and Carrie Underwood, Lambert had some special words for Taylor Swift, who had just been awarded the Pinnacle Award. “Taylor, I was crying, that was freaking awesome. That wall of stars? That was freaking awesome,” she says.

Lambert also had special thanks for those closest to her. “My band and crew, my husband, I love you. Thanks for putting up with my crap,” she says.

This is Lambert’s fourth Female Vocalist of the Year win in a row. Do you think it was deserved?
