Miranda Lambert Surpasses Reba McEntire as Most Nominated Female Artist in CMA Awards History

Since dropping her debut album, Kerosene, in March 2005, Miranda Lambert has served as one of the de facto “voices” in country music. With a résumé that includes 34 ACM Awards (most all time), 13 CMA Awards and two Grammy Awards over the last 15 years, Miranda has built herself into one of the most celebrated artists—male or female—in country music history.

On Sept. 1, Miranda added a new bullet point to her impressive résumé: most nominated female artist in CMA Awards history.

Miranda led all artists by receiving seven nominations at the upcoming 54th CMA Awards, bringing her total number of career nominations to 55, which surpassed Reba McEntire’s 51 nominations.

Miranda’s seven nominations include: Entertainer of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, Single of the Year (“Bluebird”), Album of the Year (Wildcard), Song of the Year (“Bluebird”), Musical Event of the Year (“Fooled Around And Fell In Love”) and Music Video of the Year (“Bluebird”).

The 54 CMA Awards will take place on Nov. 11.
