It looks like Miranda Lambert’s sweet revenge on Blake Shelton is her career success. The country singer is leading this year’s American Country Music Awards nominations along with other country stars like Luke Bryan and Keith Urban. Her ex-husband Blake Shelton, meanwhile, failed to receive any nods.
According to reports, Miranda Lambert’s hit single, ‘Vice,’ is up for single record of the year, song of the year, and video of the year. The blonde beauty also got nods for ‘Vice’ in the song of the year category for both as an artist and a songwriter. And if Miranda wins the award for vocalist of the year, it will be huge for the singer. She’s won the title for eight straight years in that category.
Miranda’ ex-husband Blake Shelton failed to pick up any nominations. He also didn’t win any awards from the 2016 ACM Awards last year as well.
Back in 2016 many fans said that Blake Shelton might have thrown some shade towards his ex-wife during his performance of ‘Came Here To Forget.’ In fact, the ex-couple did everything possible to avoid an awkward run-in at the ceremony. If that weren’t enough, Blake and Miranda also made sure that they didn’t cross paths during the ACM Honors back in August of last year.
One of the reasons why Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert have been avoiding one another is because of their very messy divorce. Miranda has said that she’s still dealing with the heartache from their failed marriage. Many insiders believe that Miranda is simply not impressed with Blake’s very public romance with his new girlfriend, Gwen Stefani. Plus, Blake has said multiple times that Gwen Stefani is the reason why he’s managed to pick himself up again after his emotional divorce from Miranda.
Of course, many fans aren’t surprised that Miranda Lambert is being recognized by the country music industry this year. She’s gotten plenty of rave reviews for her ‘The Weight of These Wings’ album. Her single ‘Vice’ debuted at number 2 on the Hot Country Songs chart and was also ranked number 31 on Rolling Stone’s ’50 Best Songs of 2016’ list.
The American Country Music Awards will air April 2nd on the CBS network. Tell us, do you think Miranda Lambert is going to win big this year at the American Country Music Awards?
