Pearce jumped for joy amidst a screaming crowd upon receiving her award. She also addressed her fans, saying, “Y’all, I truly don’t know how to put this into words to you. But this is all I’ve ever wanted to do in the whole world. And I feel like the last couple of years of my life, especially just the last year, has been the craziest thing in the whole world!

“I feel so honored just to be a female amongst all of the females that I love so much. And I want to thank my record label Big Machine Records. Morris Higham Management. Country radio. Country fans! You guys have let me tell my truth. And I feel like you’ve found my truth—you’ve found your truth inside of my songs.

“And I just—I want you to know that country music is everything to me. And I just love you guys so much. God bless you guys! Mom and dad, I did it! Thank you guys!”

The ACM Tweeted about the accomplishment, writing, “A heart-felt win for the #ACMawards’ @carlypearce—ACM Female Artist of the Year!”
