Female Vocalist of the Year, 1987
"I'm gonna tell you something mama said when we first came to Nashville: 'We can go back. We can go back home. You don't have to do this if you don't want to. You'll be doing something that I never could have done.' And it takes a lot of hard work. Any of you young ladies setting at home watching on TV, I gotta tell you, this is a great profession…so work hard and show 'em what you can do."
