Mrs. Blake Shelton had a pretty big night last night at the 47th Annual ACM Awards.

Miranda Lambert took home not only, Female Vocalist of the year (Hubby Blake also took home Male Vocalist of the Year) but she snagged on of the bigggest awards of the night, album of the year. Miranda’s latest album, Four the Record, has already produced a hit, Baggage Claim and her latest single Over You is sure to hit the top of the charts.

Over You is co-written by Blake and Miranda and holds a special meaning to them both. “The song was really personal to Blake and it was like a cool moment to share, writing the song together, and it was the first time he opened up to me about it,” Miranda said last week in an interview with The Tennessean.

The Shelton’s have been dealing with their share of loss of late, Blake’s father recently passed away and a childhood friend of Miranda’s was killed just weeks later in a car accident.

“It was kind of ironic, but not,” Lambert says of the events that occurred after the release of the single. “It was almost like God was sort of making this song happen for me right now because we didn’t choose it to be a single after all of that, we chose it before and then all of that happened. I really think it’s a song that makes you face the emotion of losing somebody. Sometimes it’s easy to just suppress it and not talk about it or think about it, but this song really brings that out. So many people have written into the website telling me their story of who they lost and how they feel and how this song just describes. It’s really not a fancy song. It’s a simple song about the way that you feel and the little things that trigger that sadness.”
