The Pistol Annies' Miranda Lambert – winner of the CMT Music Award for Female Video of the Year – puts her mike stand where her mouth is – in keeping with the firearm theme – in the middle of her set Thursday. "It's a week of basically the artists saying thank you to the fans for giving us a job all year, for buying our records, for coming to our shows, for buying our T-shirts and supporting us," she said of the event. "This is the only genre and the only town that actually has a week dedicated to the fans, so it's special. It's unique."
