One of our favorite girls, Taylor Swift, had a wonderful Sunday night. She returned to the country music stage today in Dallas, Texas to receive this year's Milestone Award from the Academy of Country Music Awards. It was a very emotional moment for everyone, especially for the Swift family as her mom Andrea Swift presented the crystal statuette to her while relating the story of Tay-Tay's beginnings and after her notable moments in ACMs history were flashed onscreen.
We're so grabbing a box of tissues while watching this clip over and over again. We know it wasn't an easy journey for Taylor to get to where she is right now, so our hearts are bursting just like theirs.
"Somebody once told me that you truly see who a person is when you tell them something you don't wanna hear. You showed me who you are with the grace that you accepted that with," she said. "I'm so unbelievably proud that I learned to treat people with kindness and respect through country music."
After the show, the superstar shared a heartwarming image from the night of her and her mom, embracing each other before she makes her acceptance speech, which she captioned, "Casual Sunday night with the parents."
Congratulations, Taylor and to your family as well. We're mighty proud of ya, girl!
