Miranda Lambert Humbled By CMA Win

Miranda Lambert took home some pretty neat baggage last night at the 45th annual Country Music Association (CMA) Awards. She was named the Female Vocalist Of The Year by the CMAs for the second year in a row, and also performed her red-hot hit “Baggage Claim” during the first half of the award show.

“I was really surprised,” said Miranda. “Honestly, I’m humbled. I had a great year last year, I won three CMAs on my birthday so I was kind of here to perform and be part of it but I was totally expecting someone else to take this award home this time.”

She’s scheduled some television appearances next week in support of her new album “Four The Record,” which broke a Billboard record last week. Her latest album gave Miranda the honor of being the first artist in Billboard chart history to have all four albums debut at the number one spot on the Billboard Top Country Albums list. You can catch Miranda performing her groovy little single live on NBC’s The Tonight Show With Jay Leno Monday night. Fans can then catch her new performance on the Ellen DeGeneres show Wednesday and on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!
