There’s a lot to dislike about these awards shows nowadays (Country, specifically) but there’s always a few decent highlights and a few moments where trophies find their rightful owners and tonight was no different.
Up for two awards, Megan Moroney officially won her first ever CMT Award for Breakthrough Female Video Of The Year for her debut single, “Tennessee Orange.“
“Thank you to my fans. I wouldn’t be up here if it wasn’t for y’all. Thank you to the incredible video team at Columbia for putting this together the day after Christmas. And thank you to the director, Jason Lester, for really bringing my ideas to life in this video. And I also want to thank my parents, especially my mom, because my flight got canceled the night before, and she had to drive me through the night to Nashville. So thank you, Mom. I love you so much.”
On top of winning her first CMT Award, Megan Moroney also made her Opry debut this year and her first album, “Lucky,“ is slated to drop May 5th.
SO happy for @_megmoroney! She won Breakthrough Female Video of the Year at the #CMTAwards 🥳 pic.twitter.com/QQYxkAdKvs— CMT (@CMT) April 3, 2023
