Both Lauren Alaina and Brett Young got a random call from this year’s ACM award show host Reba McEntire. Neither of them had a clue who it was or why until Reba introduced herself and congratulated them for winning New Vocalist Female/Male of the Year. Tears flowed and jaws dropped! Check out Lauren and Brett’s full conversation with Reba and their reactions here. 53rd Academy of Country Music Awards airing April 15th!
Like every post, I’ve got to start with a pun. This is the best thing that has happened to me in my “McEntire” life. Now that that’s out of the way… oh my gosh. I won an ACM. AND Reba McEntire called to tell me. I am so thankful and appreciative to everyone who voted for me and made this happen. I’m so thankful to be given the chance to make music with people I love and sing it to more people I love. Country music is my heart, and today my country-loving heart is exploding. Thank you to my team and the people in the trenches helping make this happen. I couldnt do it without my team. You know who you are. This award is for ALL of us. #newfemalevocalistoftheyear ACM – Academy of Country Music
