Miranda Lambert is proud that the Recording Academy has noticed what she has done.
After the 2022 Grammy nominations were announced on Tuesday, the 39-year-old singer-songwriter tweeted about the “incredible honour” and sent out a press release about it. Lambert is up for awards in four country categories.
At the next ceremony, Lambert’s Palomino album is up for best country album, and its songs “If I Was a Cowboy” and “In His Arms” are both up for best country song and best country solo performance. She is also in the running for best country duo or group performance with Luke Combs for their song “Outrunnin’ Your Memory.”
In a news release, Lambert said, “I’ve always thought that winning a Grammy is one of the best things an artist can do.” When I think about how some of my best friends and I made these songs, I realise how far we’ve come. I had no idea what would come out of those writing sessions.
Kelsea Ballerini, Zach Bryan, Maren Morris, Willie Nelson, Ingrid Andress, Sam Hunt, Brothers Osborne, Reba McEntire, Dolly Parton, Carly Pearce, Ashley McBryde, Alison Krauss, Taylor Swift, and Cody Johnson are also up for awards in the same categories as Lambert.
Tanya Tucker, a big name in country music, wrote, “Congratulations on your nominations!” under Lambert’s Instagram post about the honour.
Lambert has won three Grammys so far: best female country vocal performance in 2010 for “The House That Built Me” and best country album in both 2015 and 2021 for Platinum and Wildcard, respectively.
On Feb. 5, the 65th Grammy Awards will be held in Los Angeles.
