Brendan McLoughlin Is Proud “Beyond Words” For His Wife Miranda Lambert’s Latest Achievement

Miranda Lambert’s husband Brendan McLoughlin is proud “beyond words” of the “If I Was A Cowboy” singer’s latest achievement.

On Wednesday evening (Aug. 24), Lambert and her husband attended the coveted ACM Honors at The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee, where Lambert was honored with the ACM Triple Crown Award, a high honor that is awarded to an artist after they receive awards for New Female or Male Artist Of The Year, Female or Male Artist Of The Year, and Entertainer Of The Year.

As the most celebrated artist in Academy Of Country Music Awards history with 37 wins, Lambert is one of only seven artists who have been awarded the Triple Crown Award. Lambert now joins the ranks of Brooks & Dunn, Barbara Mandrell, Kenny Chesney, Mickey Gilley and Merle Haggard (who each received the award in 2005), Carrie Underwood (2009) and Jason Aldean (2015). Keith Urban and The Chicks have also qualified for the Triple Crown Award, but have yet to receive the honor.

Prior to entering the Awards show, Lambert and McLoughlin walked the ACM red carpet. The country superstar donned a fiery orange mini-skirt with a matching blazer and iridescent heels, and McLoughlin wore a suit with a purple tie, as they posed for photos in front of the ACM and FOX branded step and repeat.

While walking the carpet, the pair stopped to chat with Entertainment Tonight about Lambert’s prestigious award and more.

When ET host Cassie DiLaura asked McLoughlin how proud he is of his wife, he said “beyond words.”

“It’s an honor… it’s an honor to stand next to her and watch her do what she does,” McLoughlin added. “This is pretty great!”

Lambert then chimed in and joked, “I paid him [to say that].”

Lambert was honored several times throughout the show with tribute performances from Little Big Town and Brooks & Dunn. 

Former Bandwagon tour mates’ Little Big Town were the first to honor Lambert with a heartfelt performance of her chart-topping hit “The House That Built Me,” a performance that earned a well-deserved ovation. 

Country music icons Brooks & Dunn later performed Lambert’s 2005 hit, “Kerosene,” which was certainly a highlight of the evening. 

Following the show, McLoughlin took to social media to praise his wife and congratulate her on her success. 

“Had an amazing evening honoring the most talented woman I know,” McLoughlin wrote alongside an image of him and his wife posing on the red carpet. “So proud of you for winning the triple crown award 🏆🏆. The hard work, dedication and sacrifices you have made over the years to pursue your dreams is inspiring. I can’t wait to see what the future holds. @mirandalambert #ACMHonors.”

Hosted by reigning ACM Female Artist of the Year, Carly Pearce, the star-studded event will air in a two-hour special on FOX on Tuesday, September 13 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

Dubbed “Country Music industry’s favorite night,” ACM Honors recognized several special honorees, including ACM Triple Crown Award recipient Miranda Lambert, ACM Spirit Award recipient Chris Stapleton, ACM Poet’s Award recipient Shania Twain, ACM Milestone Award recipient Morgan Wallen and ACM Film Award recipient Yellowstone.

Performers and presenters included Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, The Warren Brothers, Brooks & Dunn, Dan + Shay, Eric Church, Jordan Davis, ERNEST, Jesse Frasure, Vince Gill, Ashley Gorley, Mickey Guyton, HARDY, Wynonna Judd, Avril Lavigne, Little Big Town, Morgan Wallen, Lainey Wilson and more.

ACM Award winner and Grammy nominee Trace Adkins was also on hand to perform his cover of “A Country Boy Can Survive,” from the upcoming FOX country music drama MONARCH, in which he stars alongside Susan Sarandon and Anna Friel.

ACM Honors will premiere Tuesday, September 13 at 8/7c on FOX.
