Lambert is now the most-nominated female artist and the third most-nominated artist in CMA history, following George Strait (83) and Alan Jackson (81).
In addition, Lambert holds a consecutive streak of nominations for Female Vocalist, collecting her 16th nomination since 2007. In CMA history, Lambert is a seven-time winner in the Female Vocalist category, and earns her sixth nomination for Album of the Year (won in 2010 and 2014).

Lambert recently released her ninth studio album, Palomino, and will soon kick off her first-ever Las Vegas Residency, dubbed Velvet Rodeo, at Planet Hollywood’s Zappos Theater on September 23.
Her Vegas residency will run through April 2023 and take place at Zappos Theater inside Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. As for the set list, it will feature beloved songs from Lambert’s entire career thus far, including her most recent release, Palomino.
In addition, Lambert said her residency will feature top-notch production, wardrobe changes, a solo acoustic performance, and more.
Lambert said she chose “Velvet Rodeo” as the name of her residency because it felt both “feminine” and “rodeo.” The title is derived from Lambert’s song, “Actin’ Up.”
“‘Velvet Rodeo’ felt right off the bat when this Vegas residency came to the table,” she said. “I think it feels feminine, but it also says rodeo. So that’s like feminine and badass, and that’s kinda what I tried to build my career on.”
The country hitmaker promises fans a once-in-a-lifetime experience with her 24-date residency. She will also be donating $1 dollar from every ticket sold to Lambert’s MuttNation Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit that has raised over $6 million since its inception in 2009.
All residency shows will begin promptly at 8pm PST, and are on-sale now!
