The 54th Annual CMA Awards are just days away and Miranda Lambert is heading into “Country Music’s Biggest Night” as the most-nominated artist with a total of seven nods.

The superstar has earned an impressive 55 career CMA nominations and admits it’s still sometimes hard for her to believe.

“It’s crazy, I don’t really process it sometimes,” Lambert recently shared with RADIO.COM‘s Kelly Ford. “The moments I do process it, I am just thankful and grateful, but it also makes me want to work harder… want to just stay in the game and want to be a part of this Nashville family. Because it’s important, it’s my life’s work. But music’s also my hobby and my passion. So really it’s kind of what I’ve given my whole life to, so to have it be recognized is nice and it’s validating and it’s also a fire that you need.”

Among Lambert’s seven nominations is a nod for the night’s top honor, Entertainer of the Year. She will also perform during the broadcast.

The 54th Annual CMA Awards, co-hosted by Reba McEntire and Darius Rucker, will take place live from Nashville’s Music City Center Wednesday, Nov. 11 (8:00-11:00 PM/ET) on ABC.
