"It's my pleasure, my pride and my joy, to introduce my daughter," her mom said, after giving a speech about raising the superstar singer.

"To the country music community, when I told you that I had 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. I will never forget it," Taylor said during her speech.

"I'm so unbelievably proud that I learned to treat people with kindness and respect from country music," Taylor added.
