Country music star Miranda Lambert is grateful that her ace album Wildcard continues to cash in with nominations during award season.

One of the top perennial hitmakers in country music can add a few more Grammy nominations to her resume. Lambert earned nods in three categories at the 63rd annual Grammy Awards, per the Recording Academy.

Lambert received a nomination for Best Country Solo Performance for her song “Bluebird.” Secondly, she got a nomination for Best Country Song (“Bluebird”) and one for Best Country Album (“Wildcard”). 

Lambert’s 2021 Grammy nominations bring her career total to 21. Last November, she released her seventh studio album, “Wildcard.”

Lambert took to social media to express her thoughts on the nominations and thank those who helped her bring Wildcard to life.

“💙 thank you @RecordingAcad. I’m so grateful that I get to make music with my friends. Thanks to all the bad a–es that made “Wildcard” happen, and thank you @lukedick and @nataliehemby for this pretty song with wings. #Bluebird#Wildcard#GRAMMYs

Lambert is a two-time Grammy Award winner. She won one for Best Country Album in 2015 and another for Best Female Country Vocal Performance in 2011.

Miranda Lambert Makes History Alongside Other Nashville Women

The Recording Academy recently unveiled the nominees for the 63rd annual Grammy Awards. And incredibly, for the first time in the show’s history, all five nominees for Best Country Album Award were made by women.

Alongside Lambert, Ingrid Andress, Brandy Clark, Ashley McBryde, and co-ed vocal group Little Big Town (band members Karen Fairchild and Kimberly Schlapman) will vie for the prize at next year’s ceremony. The date is currently set for Jan. 31, 2021.

Meanwhile, McBryde is being nominated for the award thanks to her second major-label album Never Will, produced by Jay Joyce. Never Will released back on November 3 and is the follow-up to McBryde’s Grammy-nominated debut album Girl Going Nowhere.

And while McBryde seems very excited about the honor, she says that excited may not be enough to explain her emotions.

“Wow, what a STACKED category!! Congratulations to my fellow nominees!” McBryde wrote on Twitter. “Excited isn’t a big enough word for this feeling. Thank you, @RecordingAcad#GRAMMYs
