Ahead of the event, the country music singer made a cheeky request to organizers, revealing they could make her birthday on Thursday extra special this year by giving her an award. Miranda is nominated for Album of the Year (Palomino), Entertainer of the Year, and Female Vocalist of the Year.

Recently, Miranda sat down with Scotty Kay on Audacy's US 99 (Chicago) and revealed that she would once again be celebrating her special day at country music's biggest night.

When asked if the CMAs will do anything nice for her to mark the occasion, Miranda swiftly replied: "Give me one", before bursting into laughter and adding: "That's hopeful. Happy Birthday to me!"

Miranda hasn't won a CMA Award since 2020's Music Video of the Year for her song Bluebird.

Despite walking away empty-handed at last year's ceremony, Miranda is the most nominated female artist in CMA Awards history with 61 nominations.

However, she faces stiff competition again at the 56th annual ceremony. In the Album of the Year category, Miranda is up against Luke Combs, Maren Morris, Lainey Wilson and Old Dominion.

Entertainer of the Year sees her go up against Carrie Underwood, Chris Stapleton, Luke Combs, and Morgan Wallen. And for Female Vocalist of the Year, she is battling it out against Ashley McBryde, Carly Pearce, Carrie Underwood and Lainey Wilson.

Miranda will celebrate her birthday with husband Brendan McLoughlin 

Win or lose, Miranda will no doubt be supported by her husband Brendan McLoughlin, who often accompanies his wife to award ceremonies, and we expect the CMAs will be no different.

The 56th Annual CMA Awards, hosted by Luke Bryan and Peyton Manning, will air live from Nashville on Wednesday, November 9 on ABC.
