Another Hall of Fame induction is for country star Miranda Lambert, and she is absolutely thrilled by the honor. The news follows hot on the heels of her nomination-filled evening at the CMA Awards this year.
Miranda Lambert earned herself an induction into the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame, and she couldn't be happier. Her second Hall of Fame induction, Lambert is on a roll following her recent appearance at the CMA Awards.
Since Lambert first made her appearance on a CMA stage back in 2005, she's earned 51 award nominations to date, making her the most nominated female country star in the awards show's history.
Patricia Riley, the executive director of the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame, announced the five inductees they chose to honor at the 45th Annual Induction Luncheon and Ceremony on April 27, 2021.
Due to take place at the Dixies Arena, the new Hall of Fame members will include cowgirls, a world champion breakaway roper, and Olympic Medalist, a cowboy hat designer, and Miranda Lambert. Taking to her Instagram Stories, the country star expressed her joy at the announcement and replied:
ACHIEVEMENTS THAT LED TO HER INDUCTION
Since the start of Lambert's professional career with the release of her self-titled debut album in 2001, she went on to reach great success, both as a solo artist and as a part of the Pistol Annies.
With two Grammy Awards, 14 CMA Awards, and 35 ACM Awards earned to date; Lambert won more awards for her music than any other artist in the history of the ACM Awards. With a soft spot for her furry friends, Lambert also founded the MuttNation Foundation 11 years ago, which raised more than $4.5 million since then.
THE COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME
In 2018, Lambert became the youngest, albeit the third woman to be named an artist-in-residence at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Thankful for the faithful preservation of the genre, Lambert gushed in a statement at the time:
"I’m thankful for this place, where our music can continue to be cherished, and I’m thrilled to be among the esteemed artists who have been honored by this designation.”
HOW LAMBERT FARED AT THE CMA AWARDS
Earlier this month, Lambert attended the 2020 Country Music Awards, where she performed her song "Settling Down" live in front of an audience for the first time.
As the top nominee this year, Lambert received seven nods that included Song of the Year, Single of the Year, Album of the Year, Best Female Vocalist, and Entertainer of the Year.
Miranda Lambert's success at the CMA Awards came a day after she turned 37. Alongside her husband, Brandan McLoughlin, and their furry friends, the country star enjoyed a low-key celebration.
Sharing the happy day with her fans, Lambert posted various pictures of her day, which included snaps of her birthday presents and a ride on horseback.
