CarrieÂs big day started at the ASCAP offices in Nashville where Carrie and one of her co-writers, Hillary Lindsey, were given commemorative plaques. "IÂm proud to be part of such a wonderful song," Carrie told the crowd of industry executives and media. The celebration continued later in the day at BMI, where the songÂs third co-writer, Luke Laird, was honored for his contribution. Carrie became emotional when speaking of the song and her collaborators, beginning her remarks with, "I can feel the water works coming." During her teary-eyed speech, Carrie turned to her co-writers and said, "You guys were so great to me. The song came out so easily and turned into something wonderful." The single marked CarrieÂs fifth No. 1 but her first as a writer.
