The wife of Blake Shelton receives her second win at the 2012 Academy of Country Music Awards from Ashton Kutcher.
Miranda Lambert followed Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson's double victory at the 47th Annual Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards by bagging a second trophy of her own. After previously snatching the coveted Album of the Year, she was crowned Female Vocalist of the Year. Receiving the honor from Ashton Kutcher, she beat Sara Evans, Martina McBride, Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood.
"I'm already nervous, I'm about to perform, and now this. I can't even," she said in her acceptance speech. "Thank you, Jesus, for giving me this gift I can share with all of my fans. That's what I've got to say. And thank you, to the industry for believing in me and loving me through everything and embracing me, and I embrace you all back. I'm such a country fan. I'm so proud of country music, and I love us all. We deserve this."
The Pistol Annies member later returned to the stage to celebrate her win with a live performance. Proudly introduced as Miranda Lambert Shelton by her country singer husband Blake Shelton who hosted the event with Reba McEntire, she delivered "Over You", a single from her ACM Award-winning album "Four the Record".
