Miranda Lambert Shines at the ACM Awards Night

Miranda Lambert was the most talented country musician apart from Merle Haggard at the ACM Awards event which took place this Sunday. She broke previous records by winning for the fifth time in a row in the capacity of a female artist. 

Miranda took the time on stage to lavishly praise her fellow singer, Trisha Yearwood. This is the same Trisha Yearwood whose beautiful and sad song “How do I Live without You” featured as the soundtrack of the movie “Conair” starring the legendary Nicholas Cage. 

Miranda Lambert expressed shock and surprise upon winning the three trophies and said that she was hanging out with her buddy Trisha backstage. She also went ahead and mentioned the names of Sheryl Crow and Carrie Underwood. Lambert just gushed on about these marvelously skilled and talented individuals. 

“I cannot believe this all. I really didn’t expect it, y’all. Thank you so much. I was just hanging out with Trisha Yearwood back there. Holy crap,” said Lambert, who dedicated the award to friends in her hometown of Lindale, Texas. 

“And I was standing next to Sheryl Crow, complete and utter rock star. And Kacey Musgraves, I grew up with her; she wrote the single of the year this year. Carrie Underwood is my buddy, y’all, and she is a phenomenon. I just can’t believe it. I am so grateful and thankful and humbled. I love my job.”

Lambert’s hit single “Mama’s Broken Heart” won her a prize at the ACM Awards. She accepted her award from her husband (isn’t it ironic) who gave her a light kiss. Other stars present on the occasion included George Strait and Keith Urban. 

Someone commented that if you wanted to listen to live music than this was the platform; as for the rest they can go listen to Britney Spears. 

Country music is a healthier and more beautiful alternative than the noisome heavy metal bands or screaming and shouting hard rock lyrics. As for pop music, it too is a little mindless. 

The star who stole the show was none other than Merle Haggard. This veteran singer was presented with a Crystal Milestone Award for his songs which have lit up the history of country music. And he was wished “Happy Birthday” via a chanting song by Garth Brooks and the rest of the audience. 

Merle just turned 77 and in his own words wished he was 30 instead. It was indeed a night that will live on in the collective memory of so many fans of country music.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
