Miranda Lambert Apologizes to Taylor Swift After ACM Win
Miranda Lambert may be the reigning Female Vocalist of the Year, but that doesn’t mean she’s forgotten her good manners — at least not for longer than a minute!
When Lambert took the stage to claim her fifth consecutive Female Vocalist award, she acknowledged the hard work and musical prowess of all her fellow nominees…except one. During her acceptance speech, she forgot to mention Taylor Swift!
But the gracious winner wasn’t going to let the moment pass without an apology. During a post-awards press conference, Lambert noted her thank-you speech misstep and mentioned that she’s already smoothed things over with Swift.
“I always try to acknowledge everybody in any category that I ever win” said the country starlet. “I know we all work our ass off … we all give 110 percent all year long, especially Taylor. She’s kind of like her own animal, she’s ridiculous.”
Lambert’s lapse in memory was for a great reason, though. The ‘Mama’s Broken Heart’ singer said she momentarily forgot to acknowledge Swift because she was focused on dedicating her award to some hometown friends who just lost a child.
Along with Female Vocalist of the Year, Lambert also took home statues for Single Record of the Year and Vocal Event of the Year, making her the big winner at the 2014 ACM Awards.
