Miranda Lambert earns ACM “Song of the Decade” honor
The ACMs announced seven new awards and the first announcement was the brand new “Song of the Decade” Award that was given to Miranda Lambert and the writers for “The House that Built Me”.
Explaining the award and the reason for selecting Lambert’s “House” as follows:
The ACM Song of the Decade Award recognizes a song that has impacted country music over the decade. The factors considered include but are not limited to, success at radio, commercial media, sales and streaming, creative integrity, artistic merit and ACM Award recognition. Lambert is the most-awarded artist in Academy history, with a total of 34 wins. In 2010, the hit song “The House That Build Me” won in three separate ACM categories, including Single Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Video of the Year.
Congrats to Miranda and the songwriters Tom Douglas and Allen Shamblin.
