Oh, my gosh. Oh, I’m so surprised. I don’t know what to say. This is just an unreal moment. Thank you for honoring me, to all the academy that surrounds me with so much support and appreciates the art of songwriting as I do. I was so inspired for this song by the incredible story of the love and the grace and the generosity of someone that donates their beloved’s organs to help another person live. And the story was so simple and so beautiful for these times.
And people have been responding to the song partly because of how much I love and we all love John Prine. And that was the inspiration for the music for this song and telling a story from the inside. I don’t write a lot of songs. But I’m so proud that you appreciate this one and what this means for me and for the rest of the songwriters.
I would not be up here tonight if it wasn’t for the art of the great, soul-digging, hard-working people that put these songs and ideas to music. So I thank my team for helping me get this record out. And thank you so much. I’m just totally humble. I really appreciate it. Thank you.
