Miranda Lambert will perform on the 50th Annual CMA Awards on Nov. 2 just days before she releases her new double-album, “The Weight of These Wings,” on Nov. 18.
The project is sure to be full of insight into Miranda’s life over the past few years. She’s gone on record as saying country music from her pals like Eric Church and Ashley Monroe has really helped her deal with the hard times life has dealt her. It’s clear Miranda loves being part of the country music family, and that love is definitely given back in return.
Just look at Miranda’s track record at the CMA Awards. She’s taken the female vocalist category a whopping six years in a row and could make it seven consecutive wins on Nov. 2. She’s already set the record for most wins in that category.
“I mean it really doesn’t feel real, you know, when you hear somebody say that,” Miranda says of all her success over the past decade. “It’s just sometimes I feel like I’m just getting started in my career, and sometimes I feel like I’ve been here for a really long time, but it’s moment like that, that are so validating, and make you realize all the sacrifices, and work, heart, and energy, and time you put in…you know, people notice and they still want you to be part of this family.”
As she gears up to release “The Weight of These Wings,” Miranda looks forward to what the second decade of her career will bring.
She says, “I’m thrilled to ever get to be part of anything that has to do with country music, because it’s all I’ve ever done. It’s all I’ll ever do. It just makes up who I am.”
