In a clip from The Ty Bentli Show this week, Ty played a sound bite from a recent Kix Brooks interview with Miranda, and upon hearing her words of praise, it was enough to move Carrie to tears.
“First, I’m kind of emotional. I mean, it’s a nomination for all of us. It would definitely be, ya know, not just a win for all of the things that we’ve been doing, all that stuff that she mentioned that I’m so lucky and blessed enough to do, but, you watch other women in this industry do the same thing, you know, it’s… I don’t know what I’m trying to say,” she said with tears in her eyes.
“We’re all in it together,” she continued. “If there’s one incredible thing that’s happened from all of this talk about women in country music, it’s the fact that I feel like we’ve all banded together. We all understand. We’re the only ones that can understand because we’re women in this business. They don’t know what it’s like to be us. We lift each other up. We support each other. Miranda didn’t have to say any of that stuff.”
We’ll find out on Wednesday, and remember Whiskey Riff will be live-tweeting the entire awards show, along with some of the red carpet if we feel so inclined.
