컨트리 음악의 선구자 Linda Martell이 CMT Equal Play Award를 수상했습니다.

Martell received the CMT Equal Play Award at Wednesday night’s show.

미키가 이튼, 올해 첫 솔로 흑인 여성이 국가 그래 미상 후보에 올랐습니다., Martell에게 영광을 수여했습니다., while Black artists including Darius Rucker, Rissi Palmer and Rhiannon Giddens congratulated the legend in a video package dedicated to her career.

Martell had even opened up in the piece about how she received vile treatment from venue and club owners and promoters and recalled struggling to get through performances during her time performing on the country music circuit due to the treatment she often received – but relished in the memory of receiving three standing ovations for her showing at the Opry.
