Maren Morris accepted the Grammy for Best Country Solo Performance for “My Church” at last night’s 59th Grammy Awards in Los Angeles. When accepting her trophy she stated, “Oh my goodness. This is so crazy. Thank you to the Recording Academy. 11 years ago, I went to the first ever Grammy camp, it was the first time I ever flew on a plane by myself to LA, and it’s crazy to be here a decade later. I want to thank my manager Janet at Red Light, and Coran Capshaw. I want to thank everyone at my Columbia family, Randy Goodman. I want to thank Carla and Kerry…sorry, I’m really nervous, Carla Wallace and Kerry O’Neill at Big Yellow Dog, and my family…my Mom is my date tonight, so Kelly, welcome. (laugh) Thank you guys so much, this is amazing. And the fans! Thank you for giving me the most incredible year of my life. Thank you.”
