Tim McGraw‘s “Humble and Kind” won for Best Country Song at the 2017 Grammy Awards on Sunday (Feb. 12), and songwriter Lori McKenna broke up at the podium in making her acceptance speech.

“Humble and Kind” beat out Keith Urban‘s “Blue Ain’t Your Color,” Thomas Rhett‘s “Die a Happy Man,” Maren Morris, “My Church” and Miranda Lambert‘s “Vice” for the honor.

The award goes to songwriters, and McKenna seemed almost stunned to have won during the pre-telecast portion of the awards show. Dressed in a simple black dress, she tearfully thanked McGraw for “creating a moment” out of her song, which she wrote to express her hopes for her own five children.
