Taylor Swift Wins Entertainer of the Year

The youngest country star to ever win Entertainer of the Year and first female solo artist to do it since Shania Twain a decade ago, Taylor Swift took home the CMA award beating out her all-male nominees, Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, Keith Urban and George Strait.

“I will never forget this moment because in this moment everything that I have ever wanted has happened to me,” Swift said in between tears during her acceptance speech before bringing her band to the stage.

Kanye West was the bud of many jokes last night, and after what went down at MTV’s VMA Awards earlier this year, it was expected. “Mama’s don’t let your babies grow up to be Kanye,” sang co-hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood at the start of the show.

Swift even cracked a joke about it. While making her acceptance speech after winning Female Vocalist of the Year, she said, “I want to thank every single person in this room tonight for not running up on the stage during this speech.”
