Ahead of this year's ACM Awards ceremony, Ashley McBryde received some exciting news: She won ACMs New Female Artist of the Year! Carrie Underwood had the honor of calling the New Artist winners — which also include Lanco and Luke Combs — and surprising them.
McBryde shared a video to Facebook that shows her answering a mysterious phone call on speaker phone. Thankfully, the voice on the other end was friendly, saying: "Hi, this is Carrie Underwood."

McBryde takes the call and learns from Underwood that she's been named the ACM New Female Artist of the Year, but she's so shocked that she doesn't quite believe what she's hearing.
"I am not kidding," Underwood replies.
McBryde takes a step back and remarks: "Holy sh--." After hanging up, she takes her red Solo cup full of whatever she was drinking and throws it over the grass in celebration while screaming in disbelief.
