“What I love about awards shows is that it’s kind of like your school picture,” Cam says. “We’ve all been working hard to put out cool music for everybody. And it’s really nice to just have a moment to say, like, ‘Man, look at all the great tunes that have been birthed, and all the wonderful music.’ It’s a nice time to stop and reflect on all the hard work put in.”
