All hail Miranda Lambert as she just took home the coveted trophy for the ACM Female Vocalist of the Year during the Vegas celebration.

The singer proudly walked up the stage steps in a dazzling black mini-dress with ruffled sleeves to accept the trophy from Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn. Instead of using the time to going down the industry route, Lambert kept her speech sweet and simple as a dedication to her fans.

“I cannot believe this, I really can’t. Thank you so much. I love country music…it is my entire life. I dedicate everything I have to it, and for y’all to care so much about what I’m doing, I’ll never, ever take it for granted. Thank you so, so much. Praise Jesus! Thank y’all,” Lambert said to the crowd.

It’s no wonder Lambert came out on top compared to the competition as she toured around on her Livin’ Like Hippies Tour throughout the beginning of 2018 and earned critical acclaim with her song, “Tin Man,” which won the ACM Song of the Year at this year’s ceremony.

The title of Female Vocalist of the Year was anyone’s for the taking with a solid group of nominees making up the group, including Carrie Underwood, Kelsea Ballerini, Maren Morris and Reba.

The 53rd Annual ACM Awards were hosted by Reba, and aired live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
