"I'm so unbelievably proud that I learned to treat people with kindness and respect from country music," Taylor said at the podium.

Taylor Swift was among the recipients of the Academy of Country Music's Milestone Award at the 50th anniversary of the show — and her mom was there to give her the honor.

"It's my pleasure, my pride and my joy, to introduce my daughter," her mom said, after giving a speech about raising the superstar singer.

"To the country music community, when I told you that I had made a pop album and that I wanted to go explore other genres, you showed me who you are with the grace that you accepted that with. I will never forget it," Swift said during her speech.

"I'm so unbelievably proud that I learned to treat people with kindness and respect from country music," she added.
