Miranda Lambert Says Grammy Noms Show Country Is 'Finally Out There'

'We're not out by ourselves anymore,' multiple nominee tells MTV News.

Miranda Lambert, one of country music's latest crossover darlings, is now a multiple Grammy nominee. Lambert herself is up for Best Female Country Vocal Performance for "The House That Built Me," Best Country Collaboration With Vocals for "Bad Angel" with Jamey Johnson and Dierks Bentley, and Best Country Album for Revolution.

"I got three, and 'The House That Built Me' got nominated for Song Of The Year, which goes to the songwriters," she told MTV News after learning of the nominations. "So, I'm thrilled for them!"

Lambert notes that being nominated for an award as beloved as a Grammy proves that country is now as mainstream as any other genre of music.

"It feels good to be nominated for a Grammy at all, but three is so special," she gushed. "It's such a prestigious awards show. It's mattered so much in just all music, especially for country right now, because I think we're finally out there. We're finally where people are paying attention to country music, and we're part of the world of music now. We're not out by ourselves anymore."

Plus, going to the Grammys in February means that she'll not only get to chill with her fellow country stars, but also the likes of Lady Gaga and Eminem.

"I'm glad that I get to be a part of all this. I mean, Grammys are cool because it's one room and all these artists and one night to celebrate all kinds of music, and for the people in the industry to acknowledge the talent in the room," she said. "And it's so cool to be in that room and feel that energy. It's just crazy, because music is what drives us all."
