13. Miranda Lambert
Lambert dominated the early-2011 awards show circuit, pulling in the Grammy for Best Female Country Vocal Performance, the Academy of Country Music awards for Top Female Vocalist and Single, Song and Video of the Year and the CMT Music Award for Female Video of the Year, all for “The House that Built Me.” She also became one half of country music’s newest power couple with her marriage to country stud and “The Voice” coach Blake Shelton. Since then, she released her debut album with the girl group Pistol Annies as well as her fourth solo album, “Four the Record.”—Jeff Royer
