Taylor Swift gave her mother a sweet shoutout after winning a recognition at the CMT Music Awards 2021 in Nashville, Tenn. Wednesday.
The singer earned the award for Best Family Feature for the re-release of his song “The Best Day” and the subsequent music video, which featured real home movie footage of the 31-year-old Grammy winner’s childhood.
Although Swift was not present at the awards, she took to Twitter shortly after winning to share the video with her name, which was announced as the winner. In her post, she took a moment to thank one of the co-stars in the award-winning video – her mother, Andrea Swift.
“I LOVE YOU MOTHER,”
TAYLOR SWIFT SPEAKS STEP TO SUCCESS: ‘I WORK AS HARD AS I CAN’
The video for the track, originally shown on her 2008 album “Fearless”, features several personal home movies and never before seen photos of Swift in her youth with her family. It contains several intimate family moments, such as her cuddling with her mother, watching fireworks, eating ice cream and building a gingerbread house for the holidays.
The sweet tweet comes months after Swift revealed to the world that her mother was diagnosed with a brain tumor while undergoing treatment for cancer, which returned for the second time. Speaking to Variety at the time, the singer became honest about what the news meant to her and her family.
TAYLOR SWIFT Says she would have paid ‘so much’ to own her masters
“Everyone loves their mother; everyone has an important mother,” Swift said. “But for me, she’s really the leading force. Almost every decision I make, I talk to her about it first. So it was obviously a really big thing to ever talk about her illness.
“She went through chemo, and it’s a tough enough thing for a person to go through,” she continued. “While she was undergoing treatment, they found a brain tumor.”
“And the symptoms of what a person goes through when they have a brain tumor are not something we’ve ever been through with her cancer before. So it’s just been a really difficult time for us as a family,” Swift explained.
