Thank you from the bottom of my honky tonk heart for all the years of support and acceptance. I love being part of the country music family. Songs and shows are what make my world go round. #countrymusic #entertainer------

  • This year Lambert was nominated for "Album of the Year," "Female Vocalist of the Year," "Single of the Year," "Song of the Year," Musical Event of the Year," "Music Video of the Year," AND the biggest award of the night, "Entertainer of the Year."

2. Kelsea Ballerini announced a brand new project that fans are anxiously waiting for.

  • Back in March, she released her third studio album titled Kelsea, but she said that was only half the story, so now she is releasing another album with the same songs, but all of them reimagined acoustically and calling it Ballerini.
