Lambert wins again

Wednesday, November 5, 2014 – It's been a great night for Miranda Lambert at the CMA Awards. She won Album of the Year for "Platinum," her third honor of the night.

"I have them all, and they're all amazing. I poured my heart and soul into this one. I turned 30 last year, and I needed to sing about new stuff...I really appreciate you fans supporting it and appreciating it...This is really special to me."

Lambert took the honor over albums from Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, Dierks Bentley and Eric Church.

Lambert already won Single of the Year for "Automatic" and Musical Event with Keith Urban with "We Were Us."
