Country singer Miranda Lambert has had a great year. Between nabbing Female Vocalist of the Year at the 2010 Country Music Assocation Awards and winning her first Grammy for Best Female Country Vocal Performance for “The House That Built Me,” the former Nashville Star finalist has proven that it doesn’t matter where you come from, as long as you’ve got the vocal chops to make it.
Next up for the rising star? The 46th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards, where Lambert is nominated for seven awards, including Entertainer of the Year. She’s also set to perform at the show, which fiance Blake Shelton will co-host with Reba McEntire.The Hollywood Reporter recently spoke with the 27-year-old Lindale, Texas native.
The Hollywood Reporter: You’re up for Entertainer of the Year at the ACMs…
Miranda Lambert: Yes I am. It’s a little bit surreal because it’s one of the things that I set as a goal for myself and here it is. I’m not sure I deserve to win this year, but I’m definitely glad to be in the category.
THR: When did you set it out as a goal for yourself?
Lambert: Probably 10 years ago when I first started. I said I want to be in the next 10 years nominated for Entertainer of the Year. A lot of the goals I set for myself have happened in 2010 and now this year. So, I’ve started thinking about making some new ones.
THR: Would the best scenario be that Blake, your fiance, would hand you the award as he’s co-hosting?
Lambert: Yeah. It’s awesome. We always hope that one of us will get to hand the other one an award, which would be amazing, obviously. This year, I probably won’t see him because he’s going to be real busy because he’s hosting.

Brad Paisley tells Chicago radio station WUSN that he’s okay with not getting an invitation to Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert’s wedding, which Miranda recently revealed is set for May 14. Brad says it doesn’t hurt his feelings ’cause he doesn’t like weddings anyway! He confesses that he has a fear of weddings that stems from when he sang at lots of nuptials as a teenager. Paisley recalls, “Bridezilla wasn’t a term yet, but they were.” He explains, “The mother of the bride would always freak out. These people who were normal up until they get married just became nuts, so I hope Blake and Miranda can stay sane that day and enjoy it and not be manic.”
You may recall that Brad and wife Kimberly Williams-Paisley got married at their rehearsal dinner on February 22, 2007, completely surprising their guests. Paisley says, “That took away all the pressure of it being perfect. They didn’t realize what was going on. They didn’t even stand up when Kim was walking down the aisle. There just wasn’t any of that pomp and circumstance, and that made it fun for me.” Brad adds that he has a feeling Blake and Miranda’s wedding won’t have so much pressure because “they’re just great laid back people.”
