While Blake explained why he decided to write this song and prove once again his father was right, Miranda couldn’t contain the tears. It was an emotional moment for the couple who basically dominated this year’s CMA Awards and took home the most important awards of the night.

Blake explained: “I lost my brother in a car wreck when I was 14-years-old. When I decided I wanted to be a country singer, my dad always told me, ‘Son, you should write a song about your brother.’ I lost my dad in January, and it’s so amazing to me that tonight even after he’s gone, he’s still right. I just needed the right person to write this song with and the right person to sing it.”
Miranda added, “Thank you, Blake, for allowing me to sing this beautiful song and write it with you. Thank you CMA and all of our peers for voting for us. It’s really emotional. We love y’all.”
These two are just too cute! Congrats to Miranda and Blake!
