Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards took place on Sunday and singer Maren Morris won the award of the female artist of the year.

She won the title for the second consecutive year.

Morris said, “Thank you so much. I and the ladies were just laughing our butts off during the commercial break, so I feel just really, really happy to be in a category with women who were not able to tour this year but brought so much heat to the game, to country music this year.”

She also talked about her fellow nominees  Ashley McBrydeCarly PearceKelsea Ballerini, and Miranda Lambert. “You’ve inspired me so much, to no end. Even in a year where no one has gotten to play shows, I have heard some of the best music out of all of you this past year. So thank you so much for inspiring me.”

“This category is not about who can sing their ass off or entertains the best, even,” she continued. “I kind of considered this category to be who tried their best in a year where it was very weird and no one could really do what they were made to do, but I really appreciate all of my peers for voting for me, it means so much … I love you country music, thank y’all.”

On the other hand, singer Thomas Rhett has become the male artist of the year. He had won the title in 2017. 

Thomas said, “This is absolutely unbelievable,” “I just want to say thank you so much to the ACMs, this is absolutely incredible.”
