Entertainer of the Year, 2010
"My hero, Little Jimmy Dickens has a saying: 'If you see a turtle on a fencepost, he had help getting up there'.... It sounds like a cliché when you say thanks to the fans, but the great thing about country fans is when you say 'fans,' I don't even mean mine. You guys are loyal to everyone in this room. This is the most amazing, loyal fanbase in the world."
