Maddie & Tae won the Group/Duo Video of the Year award during the star-studded 2022 CMT Music Awards on Monday, April 11!
Only Maddie could be present at the ceremony, since Tae was at home with her new baby girl, Leighton. Leighton was born premature and had been in the NICU for over 50 days. Thankfully, she is home now.
Tae appeared on video call while holding her daughter as Maddie took to the stage to accept the award for both of them.
Maddie broke down as she accepted the trophy. She told Tae she missed her terribly, and that she couldn’t do this without her. Through tears, Maddie gave her thanks to God and and celebrated her and Tae’s win.

- Brothers Osborne – “I’m Not For Everyone”
