Taylor Swift Is Star of CMA Awards, Wins Entertainer of the Year

by Donald Deane, posted Nov 12th 2009 10:29AM
Last night's 43rd Annual CMA Awards was dominated by Taylor Swift, who managed to sweep all four categories she was nominated in, including the coveted Entertainer of the Year Award. Of course, there were the requisite Kanye West jokes for his crashing of Swift's VMA acceptance speech in September, but the night was more about Swift's history-making win as the youngest person, and one of only a few women, to be named Entertainer of the Year.

The 19-year-old Swift beat out Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, George Strait and Keith Urban for the award, and also won Best Female Vocalist, Video of the Year for 'Love Story' and Album of the Year for 'Fearless.'

"All I could think about was the fact that all my life, the entertainer of the year award was always such an unattainable thing, an unattainable dream," Swift continued. "Then there I was walking up to the stage and it was happening. It took a while for it to sink in."
