LBT (CMA Single of the Year) OC: …good time. :22
“We’ve never been nominated [for Single of the Year]. We’ve been nominated for Group before, but never for that, a song performance. So, it’s just super cool. Who would’ve thought that ‘Motorboatin’’ would be up for Single of the Year, you know? But that’s how big an impact, I guess, it’s had with the fans and with people. People want to have a good time.”
