Carrie Underwood Dedicates ACCAs Win to 10-Year-Old Isley Thibodeaux [Watch]
Carrie Underwood dedicated her 2016 ACCAs win for Female Vocalist of the Year to a 10-year-old girl killed by a drunk driver a week ago.
Isley Thibodeaux was killed on her way home from Underwood's concert at the Cajundome in Louisiana last Sunday (April 24), and after a spirited performance of "Church Bells," the singer paid tribute to the young girl.
According to KLFY-TV in Lafayette, La., Thibodeaux was a fifth grade student in Breaux Bridge, La. She died when a car driven by Albert K. Sampy crossed the center line and hit her vehicle head on. The girls’s mother was driving, according to the Advertiser. Sampy is in custody, charged with multiple offenses.
Until the very end of her acceptance speech, it was Underwood's outfits that were stealing the show. She performed "Church Bells" in an dress that can only be described as futuristic princess. A peach skirt was trimmed in black, accenting a gold-plated top and wrist cuffs. The look was her third eye-popping look of the night, including a equally colorful skirt in presenting Luke Bryan with Male Vocalist of the Year and a very daring red carpet look.
The Female Vocalist of the Year award was Underwood's first ACCA. Cam, Jana Kramer, Kelsea Ballerini and Miranda Lambert were also nominated in the category.
