Miranda Lambert is telling fans she can't attend this year's Grammy Awards.

"I'm not getting to go again," the artist shared in an interview with ABC Audio, explaining that the show falls right in the middle of pre-production for her co-headlining Bandwagon Tour with Little Big Town plus prep for her new Palomino album. "So, I'm slammed this month, with the record coming out and everything."

Lambert is nominated in two categories: best country duo/group performance for "Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)" with Elle King and a best country album nod for "The Marfa Tapes," her collaborative album with Jon Randall and Jack Ingram.

"We were on a group text this morning. I feel like I have FOMO," she admitted.

Still, Jon and Jack will be there "representing the home team" for an acoustic album that Miranda says is among the most vulnerable she's ever released.

"You know, it was a risk to put it out the way it was," she noted, referring to the raw, unpolished style of the project.

Putting "FOMO" aside, Lambert said she's just grateful for all the Grammy love. "I got to play on the Grammys last year, and I got to take one home, and I was just so thankful," the singer noted. "I'm grateful for what I already have.”

She is already a three-time Grammy winner. Last month, Lambert couldn't make it to the ACM Awards -- and she won her very first Entertainer of the Year trophy.
