Country queen Miranda Lambert heads home with a tattooed arm full of ACM Awards

Her husband Blake Shelton might have had the hosting reins for the 50th Academy of Country Music Awards, but Miranda Lambert was the true queen of the ACM ball.

Besides putting the record-breaking crowd in attendance into an a frenzy thanks to a red leather get-up and a quick medley of her hits “Little Red Wagon” and “Mama’s Broken Heart.” Lambert frequently made her way to the massive stage of the 50th Academy of Country Music Awards, winning not only her sixth consecutive award for Female Vocalist of the Year, but also taking home Song of the Year for “Automatic” and Album of the Year for “Platinum.”

“I’m so thrilled ‘Platinum’ won Album of the Year, but man, it was a tough win,” Lambert said in a post-show press conference. “I own all of those other records and they are all great. And I’m still riding out ‘Platinum’. I’m not tired of it yet. It still feels new to me.”

As if that all wasn’t enough, Lambert was also recognized with one of the seven milestone awards given to artists “who have furthered the cause of country music.”  Other artists recognized with one of the prestigious milestone awards include George Strait, Taylor Swift, Reba McEntire, Garth Brooks, Kenny Chesney and Brooks and Dunn.
