Tishomingo resident Miranda Lambert won a leading four trophies, including one she shared with her husband, Blake Shelton, Sunday night at the 48th Academy of Country Music Awards. Shelton and Luke Bryan co-hosted the show live from Las Vegas.

As previously reported, Lambert and Shelton shared song of the year honors for “Over You,” her emotional chart-topper they penned together about the death of his brother, Richie, in a car accident.

“Over You” also earned Lambert single of the year honors and two more trophies, as the ballad’s writer and recording artist.

The Texas native, who performed her hit single “Mama’s Broken Heart” on the show, was named female vocalist of the year for the fourth straight year, too. She joins Oklahoma native Reba McEntire and Loretta Lynn as the only others to win the title four or more times.

Plus, Lambert performed during the show’s opening number, which featured Shelton, Bryan, Lambert’s Pistol Annies bandmates Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley, Brad Paisley and Sheryl Crow performing her hubby’s new single “Boys ‘Round Here.” In a separate performance, Lambert belted her latest hit, “Mama’s Broken Heart,” and she even presented an award alongside rock legend John Fogerty.
