ARTIST OF A LIFETIME HONOREE: Reba McEntire

BREAKOUT ARTIST OF THE YEAR: Ashley McBryde

Reba knows all about how it feels to lose close crew members. In 1991, she lost seven of her band members (Chris Austin, Kirk Cappello, Joey Cigainero, Paula Kaye Evans, Terry Jackson, Anthony Saputo, and Michael Thomas) as well as her tour manager Jim Hammon in a fatal plane crash outside of San Diego, California. Her 1991 album For My Broken Heart was dedicated in their memory.

“For My Broken Heart” Lyrics

There were no angry words at all
As we carried boxes down the hall
One by one we put them in your car
Nothing much for us to say
One last goodbye and you drove away
I watched your tail-lights
As they faded in the dark
I couldn’t face the night in that lonely bed
So I laid down on the couch instead
Last night I prayed the Lord my soul to keep
Then I cried myself to sleep
So sure life wouldn’t go on without you
But oh this sun is blinding me
As it wakes me from the dark
I guess the world didn’t stop
For my broken heart
Clocks still tickin’, life goes on
Radio still plays a song
As I try to put my scattered thoughts in place
And it takes all the strength I’ve got
To stumble to the coffee pot
The first of many lonely mornings I’ve got to face
You call to see if I’m ok
Look out the window and I just say
Last night I prayed the Lord my soul to keep
Then I cried myself to sleep
So sure life wouldn’t go on without you
But oh this sun is blinding me
As it wakes me from the dark
I guess the world didn’t stop
For my broken heart
I guess the world ain’t gonna stop
For my broken heart
