Carrie Underwood, Kacey Musgraves, Kelsea Ballerini, Maren Morris and Miranda Lambert are up for the ACM's Female Vocalist of the Year Award. Only Carrie and Miranda have won the award in the past.
Miranda has won this award for the last seven years.
"I don't know what else I'd be doing if I wasn't doing this. So it feels really good to know that people are paying attention and they are voting for me."
In addition to Female Vocalist of the Year, she's up for five more awards, including Album of the Year for The Weight of These Wings, Single and Song of the Year and Music Video of the Year for "Vice."
Maren is already an ACM winner. Earlier this month she was named the ACM's New Female Vocalist of the Year. This is her first nomination in the Female Vocalist of the Year category.
“Music, in general, growing up and to this day has always been a sanctuary for me. It’s like a really safe place to be in a writing room, or even on stage. It doesn’t sound like it would be a safe place because you’re so vulnerable, but I feel so at home somehow on stage.”
