Miranda Lambert can't believe she won Female Vocalist of the Year at the Academy of Country Music Awards for the seventh year in a row.

The 32-year-old singer picked up two awards at the ceremony in Las Vegas on Sunday and revealed her joy at being recognised by the academy yet again.

Miranda - who also won in the Vocal Event of the Year category for her 'Smokin' and Drinkin' collaboration with Little Big Town - told Entertainment Tonight: ''I was hoping for one at best! I was hoping that I would be part of it and get to collaborate with people I respected and loved and write songs that make people feel something, and that's what I'm doing now.

''It's crazy. I'm so thankful. Every time I'm here, I just really can't believe I get to be part of it... It's a community that's so important and I love it.

''I don't take any moment of it for granted. All it does is make me want to work harder, honestly.''

And Miranda also revealed that she has been hard at work on new material.

She said: ''I've been off the road a little bit, so I've been able to kind of go into the creative mode, which is good. I've been in Nashville a lot, so I've really been able to write a lot with friends.

''I'm not rushing trying to get a project done, just taking my time, enjoying it, going to see live music. Just kind of being in it. Just getting creative. That's what I do. That's what I love the most.''
