Miranda Lambert landed the Female Vocalist of the Year accolade at the 2017 ACM Awards yet again, but this year is special. This year sees the country singer become the first person to win the award for eight consecutive years starting in 2010.
Miranda Lambert wins two gongs at the 2017 ACM Awards
The 'Vice' singer was up against Carrie Underwood, Kacey Musgraves, Kelsea Ballerini and Maren Morris for the award, the latter of whom took home New Female Vocalist of the Year. But naturally it was Miranda that took it home, as the first of two awards for her that night.
'It really means the world to me', she said as she accepted the gong. 'Carrie can sing me under the table, we've agreed on that. I'm just glad to see females kicking ass these days. I'm so proud to be apart of that. So cheers to all of us girls out there dreaming.'

Miranda also won Album of the Year for her sixth studio album 'The Weight of These Wings' which topped the US Country charts. 'I just want to say thank you for letting me use my heartbreak and sharing it with me, and thanks to my daddy Rick Lambert, who's here tonight, for this beautiful title', she told the audience. She also got to perform a rousing rendition of her latest single 'Tin Man' at the ceremony.
Meanwhile, Jason Aldean was the winner of the Entertainer of the Year award, with Thomas Rhett taking home Male Vocalist of the Year and Song of the Year for 'Die A Happy Man'. Other double winners were Brothers Osborne (Vocal Duo of the Year and New Vocal Duo of the Year) and Florida Georgia Line (Single Record of the Year for 'H.O.L.Y.' and Vocal Event of the Year for 'May We All' with Tim McGraw), while Little Big Town landed Vocal Group of the Year, Jon Pardi got New Male Vocalist of the Year and Artists of Then, Now & Forever scooped Video of the Year for 'Forever Country'.
'Couldn't be more proud of this little lady and the amazing art she brings with her', Miranda's partner Anderson East captioned a black and white shot of themselves at the T-Mobile Arena on Instagram.
