Maren Morris never ceases to amaze us, and her big night at the 54th CMA Awards was not an exception!
Morris took home three awards making her the biggest winner of the night. She took home Single of the Year and Song of the Year for "The Bones." She also walked away with Female Vocalist of the Year.
In her acceptance speech, Morris wanted to highlight the trailblazers of Country music: Black women. She specifically highlighted Linda Martell, Yola, Mickey Guyton, Rissi Palmer, Brittney Spencer, and Rhiannon Giddens.
“There are so many amazing Black women that pioneered and continue to pioneer this genre, and I know they’re going to come after me — they’ve come before me — but you’ve made this genre so, so beautiful. I hope you know that we see you," Morris said. "Thank you for making me so inspired as a singer in this genre.”
We love a queen that shares her wealth. Congratulations Maren!
