Miranda Lambert is being tapped to join the prestigious museum and hall of fame in Texas. She’s won almost every award in country music, and now she’s receiving one for her roots.

The country music star Miranda Lambert is receiving an induction into the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame. Lambert’s recognition begins with her music career that started in Texas bars. She then released her first album independently in 2001, and later signed with Sony Music.

Lambert holds the Guinness World Record for the most consecutive wins of Female Vocalist of the Year at the Academy of Country Music Awards. Among these are 35 ACM awards, plus two Grammy Awards and 14 CMA Awards.

The animal lover and her mother started a rescue shelter in 2009. The mother-daughter duo named it MuttNation Foundation. The foundation especially shines the spotlight on rescue animals and shelters, as well as raising more than $4.5 million since its inception.

Furthermore, Lambert’s induction class also consists of a world champion breakaway roper, renowned artist, cowboy hat designer, and an Olympic medalist.

The five 2021 Inductees are receiving honors at the 45th Annual Induction Luncheon and Ceremony. The luncheon is set for April 27, 2021, at the Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas.
