Country music superstar Miranda Lambert not only rocked the 2018 ACM Awards stage, she also made Academy of Country Music history! More here.

Country music singer-songwriter Miranda Lambert had an incredible showing at last night’s 2018 ACM Awards! The Texan scored the top honor for ‘Female Vocalist of the Year’ and ‘Song of the Year’ for her emotional tune “Tin Man.” In the course of her successful career, Lambert has landed a total of 32 ACM awards—  more than any other artist in country music history, breaking the record previously held by country duo Brooks & Dunn.

“I cannot believe this, I really can’t,” Lambert shared while accepting the ‘Female Vocalist of the Year’ trophy. “Thank you so much. I love country music. It is my entire life. I dedicate everything I have to it and for y’all to care so much about what I’m doing, I will never, ever take it for granted.”

Besides breaking a huge record, Lambert also paid tribute to the victims of the Route 91 Harvest Festival mass shooting during the opening of the ceremony and later took the stage to perform her new single, “Keeper of the Flame.”

We are all reunited in Las Vegas tonight through the healing power of music. America, this is your #ACMawards.

 “Keeper of the Flame” Lyrics 

I’m walking in their footsteps
I’m singing their old songs
Somebody blazed this trail
I’m treadin’ on
I’m bent, but I’m not broken
I’m stronger than I feel
I’m made of flesh and bone
Not made of steel
I’m the keeper of the flame
The teller of the story
Keeper of the flame
For the ones that came before me
For the little pilot lights waiting to ignite
Like fireflies in the rain
Keeper of the flame
I’ve been burned out to ashes
Waiting for a wind
To carry me and start a fire again
Sometimes I’m just a flicker
A candle in your eye
But I swear to God
I’ll never let it die
I’m the keeper of the flame
The teller of the story
Keeper of the flame
For the ones that came before me
For the little pilot lights waiting to ignite
Like fireflies in the rain
Keeper of the flame
When I’m drowning
When I’m fighting
When I’m screaming
When I’m hiding
When I’m losing
When I’m winning
I go back to
The beginning
Keeper of the flame
The teller of the story
Keeper of the flame
I’m not doing it for the glory
But for those little pilot lights waiting to ignite
Like fireflies in the rain
Keeper of the flame
I’m the keeper of the flame
Ooh, ooh
I’m the keeper of the flame
Ooh, ooh
