You said, yes. Question mark. Well, so much happens honestly in like that last -- the last few days, so we've been going over scripts and things like that everybody is making adjustments and getting all of the -- just all the timings and things but it'll come together. You're so funny. You always wow us with performances and let's discuss many, many outfits. Of course. I mean between me and Reba and dolly, can you imagine the changes and the fringe and the rhinestones and the hair. I wish we had a time relast camera to watch how that happens. Unbelievable. It will be amazing. On your "Cry pretty" tour Halloween was the last day of the tour. You had a special guest who performed. Your mom. Not only did she performed, she rapped. Mom can rap. How long did you know that she had these skills? She's always been a performer of sorts. I love that. She practiced every day. Every day. I have video of her practicing. Does she love being out on stage. Oh, yeah, she was into it for sure. She was trying to upstage me. She's watching now, I know, hi, mom. Kicking off the performance with Reba and dolly. What can you tell us? I mean it's -- I feel like the whole tone of the night is just going to be very heart felt and sincere. Of course, we'll have fun moments because it's me and dolly and Reba, but we -- it's a tribute. It's a tribute to legend, women of country music, the now current people and we're looking to the future too which is I really love having all those elms come together and being respectful and loving and encouraging. We say it's the nicest award show. It's such a nice happy family feel. It really is. I mean, it's the best genre of music to me to be in and be a part of. Not just because of the talent but because of the people. We're all just living in Nashville doing what we do and supportive of each other. It's like the one night a year we're all in the same place at the same time. You see your friends and get to cheer each other on and be fan. This year will celebrate the legendary women of country. Seems like there's a lot that young aspiring artists can really take away from that. Oh, for sure. For me personally getting to like be in a room with dolly and Reba, those are two women that taught me how to do what I do and, you know, looking forward. I want girls to be out watching this at home and seeing all of us on that stage and getting inspired and thinking, I can do that too and I want to be a part come on. Come on. Come on. Come on. You know, Lara said it earlier. This is your 12th year. Yeah. Consecutively. You tied Vince gill. Is there a special handshake? Do you get a special jacket like 12 years? We should. Like rhinestone like nudie suit jacket something. You know, there have been many hosts throughout the years and I feel like we're all encouraging of each other and, you know, you just -- it's all good. Will you be nervous that night. I'm always nervous for like the first five minutes and then it's like, okay, this is just fun and audience is great. You just get a good energy back and it's Nashville. It's our home. Yep. You've done it 12 years in a row because you're fantastic at it. Thank you. We love watching you do it. I love doing it. You can tell you love doing it.
