Best Acceptance Speech: Blake Shelton For Song Of The Year
“I lost my brother in a car wreck when I was 14 years old," Blake says. "And later in life, when I decided I wanted to be a country singer, my dad always told me, ‘Son, you should write a song about your brother.’ And I lost my dad in January, and it’s so amazing to me that tonight, even after he’s gone, he’s still right. I just needed the right person to write this song with, and the right person to sing it.”
Best Acceptance Speech Part II: LBT's Karen Fairchild on Group Of The Year
“We’re living proof that if you work really really hard and you chase your dream, all the good stuff happens, and it follows you. Nashville, you’ve made us your band. Thank you for letting us do this…Thank you, Capitol Records and Jesus, and our mommas and daddies and Jesus, and our babies and Jesus.”
