Taylor Swift hugs mother at 2015 ACM Awards in Texas

Taylor Swift was a proud daughter and winner at the 2015 All Country Music Awards held in Texas, on April 19 as she picked up her Milestone Awards from the hands of her mother, Andrea.

The 25-year-old singer got emotional after a touching introductory speech made by her mother, whom she recently announced had been diagnosed with cancer.

Mama Swift didn't let anything dampen her excited mood as she spoke proudly about her daughter's monumental achievements in music. "I've watched this milestone artist from the time she was a tangled hair little girl growing up on our farm, full of imagination and creativity. And ever since then, her favorite thing in the world to do has been to write a song, tell a story, play a guitar, or a piano. And I've seen those things carry her through every emotion, every experience in her life. Good or bad."

Andrea also appreciated the music industry for how well they have treated her baby girl, saying:"I'd like to thank the ACMs for honoring her in this way. But I'd also like to thank the entire music community for taking such good care of her,. And [to] the fans, I know you love her as I love her, And for that I thank you eternally."


In her acceptance speech, Taylor also took the time to thank her fans in the country music community who stuck by her when she transitioned from country to pop with her album 1989."You truly see who a person is when you give them news that they weren't expecting," Taylor told the more than 70,000 people in the audience. "And so, to the country community, when I told you that I'd made a pop album and that I wanted to go explore other genres, you showed me who you are with the grace that you accepted that with."

Taylor announced her mother was diagnosed with canceron April 9 on her Tumblr. She added that it was her mom who insisted she did in order to encourage others to for screening.
