WATCH: Taylor Swift’s Mom Tearfully Presents Her with Milestone Trophy at 2015 ACM Awards
Get your tissues ready. Taylor Swift received one of the biggest awards last night — and her mom was there to give her the honor.
Less than two weeks after Swift publicly revealed her mother’s battle with cancer, the 25-year-old was honored with the Milestone Award at the 50th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards in Arlington, Texas, Sunday night (Apr. 19, 2015).
And so it was only right that mama Swift, Andrea, present her daughter with one of the biggest honors of her career.
The “Style” singer’s mom gave an emotional speech of the singer’s journey to success.
Like many of you with children of your own, I am a very proud mom. So I would like to thank the ACMs for recognizing her in this way and the entire music community for taking such good care of her.
After sharing an emotional embrace with her mom as she walked on stage to receive her award, Swift thanked her fans in the country music community who stuck by her when she transitioned from country to pop.
