At this year’s ACM Awards, Miranda Lambert could extend her lead as the artist with the most wins in the show’s history. She has won 37 to date, including two last year – entertainer of the year and video of the year for “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home),” on which she teamed with Elle King.
Lambert could also extend her lead as the artist with the most wins for album of the year and female artist of the year. Likewise, Brooks & Dunn could pad their lead as the duo with the most wins for duo of the year. And Jay Joyce and Justin Niebank could pull further ahead as the winningest producer of the year and audio engineer of the year, respectively.
One category has been renamed this year: Video of the year is now visual media of the year. Also, a category has been added. In addition to songwriter of the year, the ACM will now present artist-songwriter of the year.
