It’s humbling waking up hearing that you’ve been nominated for two #GRAMMYs. It’s one of those things that just never gets old… from the bottom of my heart, thank you. 🙏 @RecordingAcad pic.twitter.com/nWpoOTYgCl

I’m stunned and humbled and just blown away. And I’m honored to be alongside artists I admire so much. When other girls my age were planning their dream weddings, I dreamt of a Grammy nomination. I don’t even need to win. 5 year old me and teenage me are both satisfied as of now. https://t.co/VwP9X1iIyq

Got to cross a huge thing off my bucket list today. THANK YOU @macys for having me be a part of a parade I’ve watched every Thanksgiving since I was a little girl. I still can’t believe it

I said it last night & meant every word- the greatest gift that’s been given to me as a new artist is having my hero’s share their stages and special moments with me. @shaniatwain @trishayearwood @reba @taylorswift @kellyclarkson @hillaryscottla and last night this gorgeous angel human @alisonkrauss have all been generous enough to invite me into their worlds and show me the grace and poise that it takes to be a successful woman in music. Thank you to all these powerhouses & now friends for paving the way for myself and all the new ladies. // @cmt
