Last night was a BIG night for country singer Miranda Lambert. Not only was she celebrating her 27th birthday but she and her fiance Blake Shelton topped the winners list at the CMA’S — taking home five awards between them.

It’s one thing to be honored for Female Vocalist of the Year but to be given that honor by Loretta Lynn proved to be a bit overwhelming for Miranda. Tearfully accepting her award she said: “The woman who paved the way for all female, ever, in country music is standing here beside me and handed me this award…I’m going to keep going for the other woman in this industry.”

Lambert’s honors for the night included: female vocalist and album of the year for Revolution, and her single “The House That Built Me” was honored for both song and video of the year.

She quipped: “I don’t know what’s going on. I told Blake I think we better start going to church.”

Shelton, who was named Male Vocalist of the Year, and took Musical Event of the Year with Trace Adkins, was recently inducted into the Grand Ole Opry.
