Where do I even begin… What a night! It was such an honour to host the @ccmaofficial Awards and to get to celebrate so much incredible talent in country music. Congratulations to all of the nominees and winners, thank you to the CCMA and everyone involved, thank you for the Generation Award, the top-selling album award, the Fans’ Choice Award… I feel so fortunate. But mostly, thank you to the fans who embraced my music and encouraged me to persevere, you guys are the reason why I’m still here and why I’m still loving what I do. There are no words to truly express my gratitude to all of you for your continues support and love throughout the years, of which it’s been many! Thank you, I love you! 📷: George Pimental Photography
