The former Nashville Star finalist and The Voice adviser won Female Vocalist of the Year for the seventh consecutive year at the 2016 Academy of Country Music Awards, which aired Sunday night on CBS.

"I love seeing tonight a bunch of new country girls up here shining, singing their great songs that they wrote themselves," Lambert said in her acceptance speech. "I'm really excited for women in country music and I'm glad to be here as one of them."

Lambert, 32, beat out fellow nominees Kelsea Ballerini, Jana Kramer, Kacey Musgraves and Carrie Underwood in the category.

In addition, Lambert won Vocal Event of the Year with Little Big Town for their song "Smokin' and Drinkin.'"

Lambert and Little Big Town defeated "Hangover Tonight" by Gary Allan featuring Chris Stapleton, "Home Alone Tonight" by Luke Bryan featuring Karen Fairchild, "Raise 'Em Up" by Keith Urban featuring Eric Church, and "Wild Child" by Kenny Chesney with Grace Potter.

Lambert finished third on the first season of Nashville Star. She also served as the adviser for "Team Shakira" on The Voice's sixth edition.
