Miranda Lambert, Leading Lady: Billboard's Top Female Country Artist of 2017




Miranda Lambert, Leading Lady: Billboard's Top Female Country Artist of 2017 is Miranda Lambert, who nabbed the trophy for female vocalist of the year at the 2017 Country Music Association Awards on Nov. 8, her seventh career win.

On the Top Country Albums chart dated Dec. 10, 2016 (the second week of Billboard's 2017 chart year), Lambert's sixth studio set, The Weight of These Wings, arrived as her sixth No. 1 and led for three weeks. Lambert is the second artist in the Top Country Albums chart's 54-year history to post six consecutive career-opening No. 1s, tying Carrie Underwood.

Wings marks Lambert's first release since her 2015 divorce from Blake Shelton; she co-wrote 20 of its 24 tracks. To date, the set has produced three singles: lead track "Vice" started and peaked at No. 2 on Hot Country Songs, followed by "We Should Be Friends" (No. 25 peak) and "Tin Man" (No. 15).

FGL's 'All' Right: Repeating its 2016 win, Florida Georgia Line is Billboard's Top Country Duo/Group of 2017. The pair (Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley) rolled their 10th and 11th Country Airplay No. 1s in the chart year; "May We All," featuring Tim McGraw, led for two weeks, and another collaboration, "God, Your Mama, And Me," featuring Backstreet Boys, reigned for one.
