On Tuesday (September 1), the nominees for the 2020 CMA Awards were revealed. Artists such as Luke Combs, Maren Morris, and Carly Pearce were some of the artists who earned the most nominations.

Miranda Lambert also gathered her fair share of nominations…seven to be exact.

Lambert and her work was nominated in some of the CMA Awards‘ biggest categories, including Album of the Year and Female Vocalist of the Year. She also earned a nod in the Entertainer of the Year category, which is undeniably the most coveted award the CMA has to offer.

Thank you from the bottom of my honky tonk heart for all the years of support and acceptance,” Lambert wrote on Instagram after learning about her seven nominations. “I love being part of the county music family.”

Lambert has something else to celebrate beyond the seven nominations she just raked in for the 2020 CMA Awards. That batch of nominations allowed her to surpass a record previously held by Reba McEntire, making her the most-nominated female artist in CMA Awards history.

After adding in the seven nominations Lambert just received, her career total of CMA Award nominations rises to 55. In contrast, McEntire has earned 51 nominations over the course of her career.

Talk about an extraordinary accomplishment!

Tune in to the CMA Awards on November 11 on ABC to see if Lambert wins any of the categories she is nominated in. Following the success of her album Wildcard and her #1 single “Bluebird,” we’d say things look pretty good for her!
