Meghan Trainor Got Her Grammy Nomination News In Bed

Winning Best New Artist would top Meghan's 'whole list in life.'

Meghan Trainor is freaking out right now, and rightfully so -- she just landed herself a major Grammy nomination.

The pop singer nabbed the nomination for Best New Artist and literally screamed, and cried, when she learned the news... in bed.

"I was in bed and the crazy part was I had no idea they were announcing that. I've been busy in the studio and doing small gigs, that I didn't even remember what day they were going to be released and none of my family members or team members reminded me," Meghan told us over the phone, though a team member did eventually wake her up with the good news. "I was like, crying with her and hugging her, and not believing what life was that morning."

Instead of sizing up her competition (Tori Kelly, Courtney Barnett, James Bay and Sam Hunt) Meghan is celebrating them, calling her fellow nominees "ridiculously talented." In fact, she even texted Tori, whom she loves, and James Bay after the nominations were announced.

"She [Tori] texted me saying 'I'm so honored to be in this category with you. What is happening? What is life? I can't breathe,'" Meghan said. "And I'm like, 'I'm dying, I don't know what's happening.' I was like 'I love you, you're so perfect.'"

Best New Artist is a pretty prestigious Grammys category -- previous winners include Sam Smith, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Alicia Keys, Amy Winehouse and Adele.

"It means more than anything I've ever done," Meghan said of possibly winning this award. "I've always wanted to be an artist and I didn't have everyone believe that, even I didn't believe that, but I know it was a big dream of mine... but to be recognized by the Grammys as an artist, and a Best New Artist, is the top of my whole list in life."

But this isn't Meghan's first Grammy nomination. The singer attended the 2015 Grammys with her dad as her date -- she's planning on taking him again, btw -- when "All About That Bass" was nominated for Record of the Year and Song of the Year. Meghan lost out to Smith's "Stay With Me" in both categories.
