Congrats to Carly Pearce and Lee Brice as their song “I Hope You’re Happy Now” was named the ACM Award winner for Music Event of the Year.
After the announcement Thursday evening (4/15) Carly shared, “Is this even real life? This song continues to show me that all of my country music dreams are coming true. Thank you ACM – Academy of Country Music, Lee Brice & all of YOUUU for making “I Hope You’re Happy Now” this year’s Music Event of the Year!! Can’t wait to perform it Sunday night .”
Lee posted to his socials, “I am so excited to announce I won ACM Music Event of the Year for ‘I Hope You’re Happy Now’ with my friend Carly Pearce!”
And as she shared the picture of her holding her trophy, she exclaimed, “Look ma, I won an ACM. Wow. I really can’t believe this.”
The moment Carly and Lee found out that they won ACM Music Event of the Year was captured on video — and you can watch it here…
On Sunday, Carly and Lee will be preforming “I Hope You’re Happy Now” — and it’s still up for ACM Single of the Year.
Plus Carly is also nominated in the Female Vocalist of the Year category.
