Meghan Trainor and Her Dad Burst Into Tears During Her GRAMMYs Acceptance Speech
By Zach Seemayer
While it didn't come as a complete shock that Meghan Trainor was honored as Best New Artist at the 2016 GRAMMY Awards on Monday, one person nevertheless appeared completely surprised by the win -- Trainor herself -- who instantly became emotional when the envelope was opened.
As soon as the 22-year-old "Dear Future Husband" singer's name was read, Trainor burst into tears while sitting next to her father, Gary Trainor. As she took the stage, she attempted not to cry but her efforts were in vain.
Trainor took to Instagram after her win, where she revealed why she broke down as hard as she did.
"Can't believe what happened. My dad whispered "you made it" before I walked up and I lost it," Trainor captioned a split-screen pic of herself and her dad crying their eyes out. "I love my family so much. Without them I wouldn't be here today."
