Like Justin Timberlake says 29,384 minutes into his 203,938,474-minute-long acceptance speech at the 2015 Memphis Music Hall of Fame induction ceremony Saturday, they do things a little differently down there.

"Baby, I love you more than I could put into words and more than any song I could ever write," he said of his "beautiful, loving and incredibly understanding of her husband's shortcomings" wife.
