Maren Morris is an first-time expecting mom, expecting a boy in the near future but she performed her single “GIRL” live on the 2019 CMA Awards tonight, live from Nashville, TN at Bridgestone Arena. Morris was the most decorated artist of the night with 6-nominations but she tearfully accepted the award for ‘Album Of The Year’ for her latest album, GIRL.
Tearfully accepting the award for ‘Album Of The Year’ and dedicating it to the late, Busbee. She said in her speech, “I would be really remiss if I didn’t mention a huge facet of why this album sounds the way it does, and we miss him so dearly, He texted me the morning that we got the nomination for album of the year this year, and we were so excited — that’s our friend, Busbee.”
Continuing to say, “His wife, Jess, is here tonight and she looks so beautiful, Thank you for sharing your husband with us once a month. My heart goes out you and your beautiful daughters. I hope when they listen to this album… I hope they know how amazing their father was. Thank you country music, thank you to the fans, thank you.”
Congratulations to Maren Morris.
