Miranda Lambert, Brendan McLoughlin Walk Carpet Together at 2019 ACM Honors [Pictures]
Miranda Lambert won a huge award at the 2019 ACM Honors in Nashville on Wednesday night (Aug. 21), and she hit the carpet before the show with her husband, Brendan McLoughlin, as well as posing for photos onstage and in the press room after the awards show.
Lambert was on hand to receive the 2019 ACM Gene Weed Milestone Award, which the Academy of Country Music hands out each year to an artist who has had an especially impactful achievement in the preceding year. Lambert was already the most-awarded country singer in ACM Awards history prior to the awards, and her most recent win brought her career total to 33 and counting.
Keith Urban presented the "It All Comes Out in the Wash" singer with her special award, and he lauded her as an artist who "followed your muse wherever you went. You made the records you wanted to make. You stayed true to yourself, and here you are accepting this award.” She called Urban "one of my heroes" when she took the stage at Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium to give her acceptance speech.
What Inspired Miranda Lambert's New Single?
"I am so humbled" by the award, she added. She thanked her team and everyone who believed in her in the speech and turned to Instagram afterward to reiterate those thoughts and give a shoutout to her "hot date" husband.
Lambert and Urban also took the stage during the ceremony to perform her classic hit "The House That Built Me," and they appeared together in various shots on the red — well, actually blue — carpet, too.
Lambert is set to release her next studio album, Wildcard, on Nov. 1. She's released the lead single, "It All Come Out in the Wash," and fans have already heard a country-punk track titled "Locomotive," as well as a sexy, New-Wave-tinged song called "Mess With My Head" and a sunny, optimistic song titled "Bluebird." The album will also include a collaboration with Maren Morris on "Way Too Pretty for Prison."
