On Wednesday, Carrie Underwood and Thomas Rhett made history at the Academy of Country Music Awards (ACM) when they tied in a win. The two country musicians won in the category for Entertainer of the Year.

Rhett was called up first and he made his acceptance speech after getting over the shock of winning and being tied with Underwood. Up next, the “Smile Pretty” songstress also gave her own speech but she snubbed her family by mistake.

CARRIE APOLOGIZES

Speaking to reporters about the mistake, the singer gave an apology stating: “First I want to say, I’m a dummy for not mentioning my husband or children in my acceptance speech.” She berated herself noting that after so many years, seeing others give speeches, and making her own she should know to think of the people who are important to her.
