Miranda Lambert made history with 7 nods at this year’s CMA Awards, making her the most-nominated female artist in CMA history.
Her nominations include the night’s top honor of Entertainer Of The Year, up against fellow country superstar’s Carrie Underwood, Luke Combs, Keith Urban and Eric Church. Lambert and Underwood both being in the EOTY category marks the first two female solo artists to be nominated in the category together since 1979.
Lambert says that it is pretty incredible and very humbling to be nominated alongside Carrie Underwood in the Entertainer Of The Year category.
“That’s pretty incredible and it’s also very humbling to be the other one next to Carrie Underwood,” Lambert told ET’s Rachel Smith ahead of the awards show. “She’s a force and I’ve always been a huge supporter and believer, and was very vocal last year about how I thought she should take it home. So if she does this year, I’ll be the first one out of my seat.”
The 54th Annual CMA Awards will air live on Wednesday, Nov. 11 at 8 p.m. ET/ 7 p.m. CT on ABC.
