Lambert, Shelton take ACM for Song of the Year
Sunday, April 7, 2013
– Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton won the Academy of Country Music Award for Song of the Year for Over You.
Shelton did most of the talking as he said he would, but adopted a far more serious tone in thanking the audience. He said that Lambert, his wife, had taught him a lot of things about life and who he is.

Lambert and Shelton won the award over Eric Church's Springsteen, Hunter Hayes' Wanted, Eli Young Band's Even If Breaks Your Heart and Lee Brice's A Woman Like You.
