Paging Elle Woods! Miranda Lambert took a page out of the Harvard grad’s book with her all pink CMA Awards ensemble. Rocking a bright pink dress with shoulder pads, paired with fuchsia stilettos and a pink clutch, the blonde songstress was one of the best dressed of the night! She also had one of the hottest accessories — her husband, Brendan Mcloughlin. The two were all smiles on the red carpet and clearly so in love.
At tonight’s show, Miranda leads in nominations with seven total, including her first Entertainer of the Year nomination in five years. The “Bluebird” singer is also nominated in the categories of Best Album of the Year, Female Country Singer of the Year, Single Of The Year, Song of the Year, Musical Event of the Year and Music Video of the Year. She took the stage and performed a stripped down version of “Settling Down” while wearing a sweet mini black dress and received a standing ovation from the crowd. When it comes to the Entertainer of the Year nod, Miranda reminisced in an interview with ET about how ‘humbling’ it is to be nominated alongside fellow female trailblazer, Carrie Underwood.
“That’s pretty incredible and it’s also very humbling to be the other one next to Carrie Underwood,” Lambert said ahead of the show. “She’s a force and I’ve always been a huge supporter and believer, and was very vocal last year about how I thought she should take it home. So if she does this year, I’ll be the first one out of my seat.” She added that her history-making seven nominations was “pretty crazy.” “It means my life’s work. It’s literally what I’ve chosen to do with my whole life, and having that validation that your peers believe in what you’re doing and the people in the industry believe in what you’re doing and vote for you all these times and all these years, it means the world to me.”
Recall, fans went nuts over Miranda’s recent music video of “Settlin’ Down,” which featured Brendan at home on their Nashville farm. “It was his debut on film, which he killed it,” she shared with ET. “I knew he would but the abs conversation wasn’t really a conversation. It was like, ‘You have to show the world that if you have it, honey.’ That’s what we have to do.”
