ICYMI: Jason Aldean is not attending the 2022 GRAMMY Awards.
She revealed the news during an interview with ABC Audio on Friday, explaining that the timing didn’t work out for her.
“I’m not getting to go again,” the Texas native, who is preparing for the April 29 release of her new album and upcoming The Bandwagon Tour with Little Big Town, shared. “So, I’m slammed this month, with the record coming out and everything.”
The news comes just weeks after the Academy of Country Music Awards, where Lambert was crowned ACM Entertainer of the Year. She also missed out on that show due to a scheduling conflict with her headlining run at C2C Festival in Europe.
Lambert is currently nominated for two GRAMMYs, including Best Country Duo/Group Performance for “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” with Elle King and Best Country Album The Marfa Tapes, her collaborative album with Jon Randall and Jack Ingram.
“We were on a group text this morning. I feel like I have FOMO,” Lambert admitted, revealing that Randall and Ingram will be there “representing the home team” for The Marfa Tapes.
Lambert has earned 23 career GRAMMY nominations and to date, has taken home three.
“I got to play on the Grammys last year, and I got to take one home, and I was just so thankful,” she added. “I’m grateful for what I already have.”
Miranda Lambert’s much-anticipated new album, Palomino, arrives on Friday, April 29. The project includes 15 tracks and “explores the world and the people in it, seeking beauty and adventure all around.”
