The 20-year-old pregnant “I Hope” singer picked up the CMT Breakthrough Video Award, which was presented by Taylor Swift, who won the same award 13 years ago.
She won for her debut single, “Tim McGraw”.
Taylor Zoomed into the virtual broadcast to hand over the title to Gabby.
“That’s amazing! Oh my gosh. Okay, I don’t even know what to say because I didn’t really think that I was going to win,” Gabby shared in her remote acceptance speech.
She added, “But first, oh my gosh, my fake trophy in my hand right here, I would like to thank my Lord and savior Jesus Christ, because I wouldn’t be able to be doing what I love every single day without Him. So thank you, Lord. Secondly, all the fans that voted, thank you so much. That’s something that I really loved about country music coming into it was how loyal the fanbases are and how they just incredibly love the people that they love, so thank you guys so much.”
“I would like to thank my husband, my family back in Pittsburgh, my entire team … I’m so new to this, this is my first time receiving a television award, so thank you so much CMT,” Gabby concluded.
