At Sunday’s Academy of Country Music Awards, the 33-year-old songstress took home her eighth consecutive award for Female Vocalist of the Year, breaking the record previously held by Reba McEntire.
“This really means the world to me. Carrie can sing me under the table, we’ve agreed on that,” Lambert joked in her acceptance speech of fellow nominee and friend Carrie Underwood. “I’m just glad to see females kicking ass these days, I’m so proud to be part of that.”
Lambert also nabbed a trophy for Album of the Year for her latest, The Weight of These Wings, which was written in the wake of her 2015 divorce from fellow country star Blake Shelton.
“I just want to say thank you for letting me use my heartbreak and sharing that with me,” Lambert emotionally told the crowd before thanking her father, Rick, who was also in attendance, for helping her name the album.
