"I am truly blessed and humbled to be in the list of names who have won this award," stated DAUPHIN. "Thanks to all my editors who give me the outlets to write for, especially TYE COMER at BILLBOARD for the chance. And, thank you to the publicists who make my job so much easier. They are not just people I work with, they are my friends. Thanks to my GOD, my family, including my son ZACK, and of course to the CMA."
