Miranda Lambert came away from the ACM Awards 2013 with the award for Female Vocalist of the Year, but, modest as ever, the country star and onetime Voice mentor thought another singer deserved to win: American Idol alum Carrie Underwood!
If anyone stole the show at last night’s ACM Awards, it was Miranda Lambert. Not only did the country star look stunning on the red carpet, she captured the prize for Female Vocalist of the Year. But perhaps even more impressive than her ability to win this award was Miranda’s reaction during her acceptance speech. Instead of keeping the focus on herself, the singer praised fellow musician Carrie Underwood, saying, ““I for sure thought Carrie had it this year, and she damn well deserves it.” Miranda then admitted, “I’m not supposed to say that on TV.”
And since she didn’t think she should be expressing too much admiration of Carrie Underwood on television, Miranda continued gushing to People Magazine after the awards show. She said that, while glad to have such support from the country music community, she felt that it was time for one of the other talented singers in the genre to receive some recognition. “I mean– I really, truly was rooting for Carrie. She really, truly is an inspiration to me as a vocalist, and I love her and I really wanted her to win tonight. She can sing any one of us under the table.”
What do you think? Did Miranda Lambert deserve to win big at the ACM Awards 2013? Or is she correct in her belief that Carrie Underwood was the best candidate for Female Vocalist of the Year? Sound off in the comments section below!
