Miranda Lambert won Best Female Vocalist at the CMA Awards for the sixth consecutive time on Wednesday night.
But this one felt different from past victories.
Lambert didn't just divorce fellow country star Blake Shelton a few months ago, she spent this week hearing all about rumors that Shelton is now dating pop icon and The Voice co-star Gwen Stefani.
Then, mere hours before the CMAs aired live from Nashville, Stefani confirmed she is boning Shelton, Lambert's famous ex-husband.
Who, of course, happened to be in attendance at the event.
But Lambert handled the situation like a professional, first putting on an outstanding performance of her new single "Bathroom Sink" and then being called on stage to accept the aforementioned award.
"Man, I appreciate it. I needed a bright spot this year, so thank you," the artist said in her acceptance speech, making a clear reference to her divorce.
Mentioning another powerhouse performance from an unlikely duo earlier in the evening, Lambert then added in conclusion:
"I love country music fans, and I'm just gonna keep it short, but Justin Timberlake and Chris Stapleton, thank you very much. I'm gonna go home and practice.
"Thank y'all very much, I love y'all."
Lambert defeated such major stars as Carrie Underwood and Kacey Musgraves to take home Best Female Vocalist here in 2015.
Well deserved, we say!
