Taylor Swift Turns the 2013 CMT Music Awards ‘Red’
Crossover superstar Taylor Swift brought her pop country juggernaut to the 2013 CMT Music Awards on Wednesday night (June 5), turning in a high energy performance that made the awards show seem like one of her concerts.
Wearing a red dress and playing a red guitar, Swift delivered a strong version of the song, the title track from her Triple Platinum album. Her voice sounded confident in live performance, and the song was highlighted by an outstanding electric guitar solo that took it outside of her country pop realm and into rock for a moment.
The themes from Swift's enormously successful 'Red' tour were all over the stage, making her performance overwhelm the other acts of the night through its sheer visual power. The entertainer has been dominating arenas from coast to coast with her 'Red' tour, which has cemented her position as one of the biggest touring acts in country music.
