I haven’t cried like this since my daddy died. I tried to make this video seven times, y’all. I love y’all, man. So f—king much.”

The country star added that he was initially “embarrassed” to post the candid clip but his wife, Bunnie XO, told him that his “honesty and rawness” is what got him “this far.” Promising that he would post a “more complete thought” about the nominations when he gets his “head together,” he added, “I just never would’ve imagined.”
