Grammy Awards: Miranda Lambert wins female country vocal performance
Miranda Lambert, the saucy country singer who first collared listeners in 2006 with her fiery debut single, “Kerosene,” has won the Grammy Award for female country vocal performance for “The House That Built Me.” The contemplative track is from “Revolution,” her third studio album that has sold more than 1.1 million copies since its September 2009 release.
“The House That Built Me” was up against efforts from Jewel, LeAnn Rimes, Carrie Underwood and Gretchen Wilson. Lambert also snagged a Grammy nomination for record of the year.
The Grammys recognize outstanding work produced between Sept. 1, 2009, and Sept. 30, 2010. The awards — which are considered the highest honor in the music world — are being presented at Staples Center and telecast on CBS. We'll carry all the breaking news and headlines here on Awards Tracker.
