Miranda Lambert Makes History at ACM Awards

On Sunday April 2nd, Miranda Leigh Lambert set a record with her EIGHTH consecutive win for Female Vocalist of the Year at the 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards (ACMs).  In her acceptance speech, after paying tribute to fellow nominee, Carrie Underwood, Lambert remarked, “I’m just glad to see females kicking ass these days. I’m so proud to be part of that.”

Her smash-hit double-album The Weight of These Wings also won for Album of the Year, prompting her to say, “Thank you for letting me use my heartbreak and sharing it with me.” This marks Lambert’s FIFTH consecutive album to be recognized in the ACM Album of the Year Category, the most of any artist in ACM history. Her total ACM wins now stands at 28 Awards.

The Weight of These Wings soared to #1 on the iTunes charts within an hour of her win, and her single, “Tin Man” began climbing the charts following her emotionally powerful acoustic performance.

Lambert recently completed the first leg of her “Highway Vagabond” tour and will be at festivals and amphitheaters throughout the summer. Her European tour will kick off in The Netherlands and take her to England, Scotland and Ireland in August. Late September and into October, Miranda will tour Canada.

Everyone asks “what exactly do you do Jessica?” What some of my family members say, “she tweets for a living” is my favorite, but really the title that puts food on the table is “Social Media Influencer,” the definition sounds simple, someone who influences others through social media, but I consider myself a Citizen Journalist broadcasting and entertaining with news, thoughts, opinions, delivering information in my own unique way. Famous for my ‘sass wit and straight from the hip’ style I’ve always been called a “Social Media Pioneer” in the music industry. I’m also an On-Air/Online Broadcasting Host and Personality, Digital Media Strategist, Country and Music Blogger/Journalist as well as a Nationally recognized Speaker and Founder of Country Music Chat, News and Views Entertainment Website CMChatLIVE.com. My favorite accomplishment is starting the largest Country Music Hashtag community in the world Country Music’s #CMChat. It all started with a hunch...back in the early 2000’s I would dial up the internet via AOL and join chat rooms whilst watching my favorite programs on TV. Loved watching Reality Shows with my Mom in Tucson, and blowing her mind with how I always knew who was going home on the Bachelor or Big Brother. Don’t think she ever caught on that I was talking to people via computer on the East Coast, where it had already aired. (We didn’t have the uber-spoiler Twitter or Facebook to ruin results and awards shows for us yet.) I’ve been taking over the internet, one tweet at a time and have accumulated over 3 Million followers/friends/fans across all my Social Media networks. Over the years I’ve been consistently ranked as an influential online personality and even named as a Forbes Top 50 Social Media Power Influencer. I was the first person Merle Haggard followed when he got on Twitter and spent the day with Garth Brooks at Twitter and Facebook when joined the social media world.
