(CBSDFW.COM) – Arlington-native and country singer Maren Morris won a Grammy for Best Country Solo Performance Sunday.

Morris was also nominated for three other Grammys including Best New Artist.

Morris is grew up in Arlington and performed at venues from the Fort Worth Stockyards to the Granada Theater in Dallas.

At a watch party in Arlington, friends watched the Grammy Awards and awaited good news of a win throughout the evening.

Morris’ godfather Richard Mills remembers her as a kid and doing karaoke performances in his living room.

“This is just a culmination of everything she’s done. It’s awesome,” said Mills about her Grammy win.
