Carrie Underwood is making history once again.

After tying with Thomas Rhett for the ACM Awards Entertainer of the Year title, the superstar has now become the first female artist in ACM history to take home the honor three times.

Underwood previously won Entertainer of the Year in 2008 and 2009 when the award was partially fan-voted.

Backstage, the “Drinking Alone” singer spoke about her big win as well as her ACM Awards performance and getting the chance to honor legendary artists like Dolly Parton, Reba McEntire and Patsy Cline. She admitted she has a hard time putting herself on the same level as some of the women who came before her.

“I don’t think I can ever look at myself like that,” Underwood said.

“I feel like a tourist, still, you know? I don’t know — I always say that I’m waiting for people to figure me out and leave me behind, or something,” she continued. “I will never look at myself the way that I or anyone else should look at those women [whose songs] I got to sing tonight.”
