Miranda Lambert won big at this year’s Academy of Country Music Awards. The singer was a three time winner, claiming her first Top Female Vocalist of the Year trophy, as well as first Video of the Year for her chart-topping “White Liar.” But it was her Album of the Year win for her album Revolution that earned Lambert a place in ACM history as the first solo female ever to win Album twice – a feat made all the more impressive because she accomplished it with two consecutive albums. Her sophomore Crazy Ex-Girlfriend won Album of The Year in 2008.

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, Miranda will be featured with her best friend - her mom Bev –on the cover of Country Weekly’s Mother’s Day issue, on stands May 3rd. Lambert and her mom talk about how they are able to work together as a team and the importance of keeping the family close, despite crazy schedules.

Miranda will also celebrate the holiday in a special Mother’s Day episode of “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” as a “Get On The Bus” volunteer and will perform her current single, “House That Built Me.” Miranda will travel to Tulsa, OK, to meet Toen and Amy Starkweather, whose nine-year-old son Ethan suffers from a rare disorder called Prader-Willi syndrome.
