Does Miranda Lambert Mention Blake in Her "CMA" Speech?



Miranda Lambert has had one heck of a year.

News of her divorce from fellow country star Blake Shelton after four years of marriage dominated the headlines this summer and hours before the 2015 CMA Awards aired, Shelton confirmed he was dating his "The Voice" co-star Gwen Stefani.

So when, Lambert took home the award for Female Vocalist of the Year at the 2015 CMA Awards tonight in Nashville after her powerful performance of her latest hit single, "Bathroom Sink," it was quite an emotional moment.

Lambert, who was sporting dip-dyed pink tresses, took the stage and kept her speech real ... very real.

"Hi guys, thank you so much," the 31-year-old said singer said as the crowd cheered her on.

"Man, I really appreciate it. I needed a bright spot this year, so thank you. I love country music fans, and I'm just gonna keep it short, but Justin Timberlake and Chris Stapleton, thank you very much. I'm gonna go home and practice. Thank y'all very much, I love y'all."

It was the icing on the cake for a clearly difficult year for the "Little Red Wagon" singer and marked her sixth win in a row for Female Vocalist of the Year.

Nicely done, Miranda.
