Maren Morris took a trip down memory lane on Tuesday when her husband, country artist Ryan Hurd, found the notecard in his truck that she used during her Best New Artist acceptance speech at the 2016 CMA Awards.
When she took the podium you could see winning was a surprise to her. "Y'all ... I can't win this award right after performing. I'm gonna fall apart," she said. "This is so crazy. So, last year I sat across the street at a bar and watched this show," she said tearfully. "I never thought as a songwriter I'd be standing here today. Thank you so much for voting for me."
Ryan just found this cleaning out his truck. My notecard from when I won Best New Artist at the CMAs. I thought I lost it but it luckily survived the last 2 years. I’m proud I pretty much read all of it before my tears gave way. 😭😭😭 pic.twitter.com/yM41fxsUhz— MAREN MORRIS (@MarenMorris) August 14, 2018
