Brett Young says when he got the call from Reba McEntire letting him know he won ACM New Male Vocalist, he was truly surprised. Then he had another big moment when Luke Bryan showed up at one of his events with his trophy. He said he was glad that the award wasn't given on camera, because of the pressure of an acceptance speech in front of his peers. Brett tells us more: “It probably sounds cliché to say, and I know people say that all the time, but think it already felt like a win when they named the category just to be mentioned amongst some of the people that I’m a really big fan of already. So to get the win was really special and it was fun. I didn’t even have to give a speech or anything. I’ll take my first win and get to eliminate the speech and all that stress, so it was a pretty fun experience.”
