Miranda Lambert’s First CMA Speech Shows She Supported Women Ever Since

In 2019, Miranda Lambert launched her all-female Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour, featuring talented women in the genre such as Maren Morris, Ashley McBryde, Tenille Townes, and Caylee Hammack. However, supporting her female peers is nothing new for Lambert.

Miranda Lambert’s Amazing Speech

Want proof? Just watch this video of her acceptance speech from the 2010 CMA Awards, when she was presented with her first-ever Female Vocalist of the Year trophy by her longtime hero, Loretta Lynn.

First Moments – Miranda Lambert

🙌😭 In 2010, Loretta Lynn Official presented Miranda Lambert with her first CMA Award for Female Vocalist of the Year. Thank you, Miranda, for promising to keep going for all the women in the industry. #CMAawards #FirstMoments

Posted by CMA Country Music Association on Friday, November 1, 2019

“The woman that paved the way for all females ever in country music is standing here beside me and handing me this award,” Lambert said during her emotional acceptance speech. “And I’m proud that I can now call her a friend.”

Bursting into tears, Lambert went on to thank Lynn for her inspiration as a woman in the genre, taking time to pay a nod to Reba McEntire, too. After thanking her icons for their groundbreaking legacies in country music, she went on to say that she planned to pay it forward for the next generation of female country artists.

“I’m gonna keep going for the other women in this industry, I promise. Thank you so much. I really, really appreciate it,” Lambert concluded.

She’s made good on that promise in the years since. As a tour boss, Lambert makes it a point to offer advice and solidarity for young women coming up in the music business, even offering rising performer Hammack some much-needed tips on managing friendships with her female peers.

Lambert is once again in the running for Female Vocalist of the Year at the 2019 CMAs. She is nominated alongside Carrie Underwood, Kacey Musgraves, Maren Morris, and Kelsea Ballerini. Underwood is also nominated for the award show’s highest honor, Entertainer of the Year. She’s the only woman in the running for the title in 2019, and if she wins, she’ll be the first female artist to do so since Taylor Swift in 2010. Prior to the show, Lambert has come out in support of Underwood for Entertainer of the Year.
