We couldn’t be more proud of our November cover girl, Taylor Swift! At last night’s 47th annual Country Music Awards, Swift became the CMA’s biggest winner, taking home four awards: Musical Event of the Year, Music Video of the Year, International Artist Achievement, and the prestigious Pinnacle Award. But there’s more! The 23-year-old singer and songwriter also became the second recipient in the history of the CMAs to receive such an award, which is given to “an artist who has achieved both national and international prominence through concert performances and record sales at levels unique in Country Music.” It came full circle for Swift as she was honored on stage by fellow musicians George Strait, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley and Rascal Flatts, all of whom she once opened shows for when she was younger. “You’re not only rewarding my hard work and exhaustion, you’re rewarding the hard work and exhaustion of my family and my label and anyone who works with me,” Swift said during her heartfelt speech, “and most of all the fans who filled the stadiums, I love you.” Congratulations again to Taylor!
