There’s no one like Mom! Taylor Swift gave her mother, Andrea, a heartwarming shoutout after her music video for “The Best Day (Taylor’s Version)” won the trophy for best family feature at the 2021 CMT Music Awards on Wednesday (June 9).
“I LOVE YOU MOM,” Swift declared on Twitter in response to the CMT account’s announcement of her victory shortly before the live ceremony began. The visual for her re-recorded song from Fearless (Taylor’s Version) follows the life of the 11-time Grammy winner, with sweet family videos showing various moments of her life with her loved ones as she grows up. Andrea is featured in many of the clips.
