Inside The ACM Entertainer Of The Year Nominees: Miranda Lambert

One of the five nominees for Entertainer of the Year at this year’s Academy of Country Music Awards is Miranda Lambert.

Miranda is undoubtedly one of country’s hottest stars right now, thanks to a series of hit songs including “The House That Built Me,” “Over You,” “Kerosene,” “Fastest Girl in Town,” and her most recent single “Mama’s Broken Heart.” She has a bold and sometimes “fiery personality,” and she is, as one of our panel of music experts notes, “the girl that girls wish they had the guts to be.”

Check out these and other insights from our panel of experts–and see what led to Miranda’s ACM nomination–in this installment of Inside the Entertainer of the Year.

Our panel of experts included Marci Braun and Drew Walker of Chicago’s US99.5; Dr. Don, Rachael Hunter, and Steve Grunwald of Detroit’s 99.5 WYCD; The Boot‘s Beville DunkerleyGrady Smith of Entertainment Weekly; author Alan Light (The Holy or the Broken: Leonard Cohen, Jeff Buckley, and the Unlikely Ascent of “Hallelujah”); and’s Annie Reuter and Courtney Smith.
