Despite Some Struggles in 2021, ACM Awards’ Names Morgan Wallen Album of the Year Winner 

Following a dramatic year, Morgan Wallen was named the winner of the ACM Awards’ Album of the Year award for his 2021 album Dangerous: The Double Album. In his award acceptance speech, Wallen opened up about the creation of the album. “When I started this album, I was a kid. By the time I put it out, I was a father. That’s become more important to me than anything else. To my son, this album and this award will signify that his daddy was a fighter. And he chased his dreams and worked out to make them a reality.”

The ACM Award winner then shares that he wanted to give a special thank you to all the songwriters, producers, and musicians that were part of his album. “I wish you were standing here next to me now. This project would not be complete without each of them.”

Miranda Lambert and Country Music Newcomer Lainey Wilson Both Were Dubbed Big Winners at the 2022 ACM Awards 

Meanwhile, Miranda Lambert scored both Entertainer of the Year and Video of the Year awards at the ACM Awards. She received Video of the Year alongside Elle King for Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home).

However, the country singer was unable to be present at this year’s big event. She was at the C2C Festival in Europe and that prevented her from being at the ACM Awards. “I’ve been waiting for this for a really, really long time,” Lambert declared in her acceptance speech on video. “I actually thought it would happen. This one goes out to all the girls out there. We did it!”

Country music newcomer, Lainey Wilson, also received ACM Awards’ New Female Artist of the Year and Song of the Year.  She received Song of the Year for Things a Man Oughta Know.
