Maren Morris also represented women in country when she teamed up with John Mayer to perform “The Bones”.
“I’m so excited to be in this round with my friends Miranda Lambert and Mickey Guyton who are also nominated. This is Mickey’s first year being nominated,” commented Morris while speaking with People prior to the ceremony.
Miranda Lambert took to the stage to perform a stripped-down rendition of “Bluebird”.
Lambert paid tribute to her fellow female country singers while accepting the award for Best Country Album.
“We’re such a family in country music, so holding this right now, I feel like I’m holding it for all of us, especially for us girls,” she said during her acceptance speech.
