The Academy of Country Music Awards (ACM) will air at 8pm today, and Miranda Lambert does not want to host. Miranda Lambert is a country music singer who first gained fame as a finalist in the 2003 reality TV show, Nashville Star. She has then risen to be one of country musics biggest stars, her first album released in 2005 went platinum. Lambert also recorded the song “Run Daddy Run” for the hit 2012 film The Hunger Games. The song was recorded with her girl group Pistol Annies, Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley are the other members of the group. Lambert formed the group in 2011 and their albums have seen much success so far. In 2006 she met and began dating another country music singer, Blake Shelton and the two hit it off immediately. Shelton is also known as a judge on the hit singing reality show, The Voice. Shelton has been with The Voice since it debuted and three out of the five seasons of the show his personally selected team of singers have won the competition.
The couple tied the knot in 2011 and both have been incredibly successful in their music and TV careers. Lambert guest starred on an episode of Law & Order in 2012 and critics liked her work. While she did a good job acting on the show, Lambert admits that she does not want to host the ACM awards and that her husband Shelton is much more qualified to do so. Miranda Lambert states that her husband Blake has a gift, and that she is very aware that she lacks that certain gift.That gift she says is comedic timing, and she claims to have none, but does state that her husband Blake has plenty to spare. Many wondered why the country music star who always seem comfortable performing on stage did not want to host, Miranda Lambert claims she has no interest in it as she knows she would just end up falling face first in front of national television.
Blake Shelton will be hosting the ACM awards and is also nominated for five awards, wife Lambert may not be hosting but will be busy with her seven nominations. Among the seven Miranda Lambert is nominated for her third Entertainer of the Year award and also Female Vocalist of the Year which will be her eighth consecutive nomination for the country music star. Her hit song “Mama’s Broken Heart” is nominated in three different categories as Best Video of the Year, Best Song and also Single Record of the Year. Lambert is also nominated twice for Vocal Event of the Year award.
While Miranda Lambert does not want to host the ACM awards we will still see plenty of her on stage accepting her soon to be awards, if she wins of course. Between her and her husband Blake Shelton are 12 nominations for possible ACM awards, proving that no matter what they are a power house couple in the country music world to certainly be reckoned with. Tune in tonight at 8PM on CBS to see how the country music stars live and hopefully accepting their new awards.
