When the 2022 ACM nominations came out this week (2/10), Miranda Lambert scored five nominations earning her record-tying 16th nod for Female Artist of the Year (tied with Reba McEntire). It’s a category for which she has been nominated every year since 2006 and in which she won a record-setting nine consecutive trophies.  

Miranda also becomes one of the first female producers in ACM history to earn a nomination for Album of the Year, in honor of her work on The Marfa Tapes  with Jack Ingram and Jon Randall; it is also nominated for Best Country Album at the upcoming Grammy Awards. 

Her other nominations include Entertainer and Video of the Year for her duet with Elle King, “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home).”

Lambert said of her Album of the Year nomination, “I am so humbled by our industry’s recognition of the music we’re making. Jack, Jon, and I took five days to make this music around a campfire in Marfa, Texas, where we’ve been writing together for years, and receiving acknowledgment like this only furthers the permission we give ourselves to be vulnerable and stretch beyond our comfort zones.”

She added, “I can’t believe we get to do this and do this together… to follow our dreams and be part of such a supportive community. Thank you for listening and for loving Country music.”
