Taylor Swift Wins Entertainer of the Year at 2011 CMAs
Taylor Swift is the new CMA Entertainer of the Year! The singer-songwriter, who won the award in 2009, has reclaimed the evening’s highest honor.
“I’m so happy right now!” she gushed from stage. “This is thanks to all the fans who filled up those stadiums and arenas all over the world this year. Thank you so much. This is amazing! One of my favorite things about this year is the camaraderie among all these artists. I’d just make a phone call, and I’d say, ‘Hey, do you want to come sing with me?’ and there were a lot of artists who came out of the goodness of their hearts.”
The gracious star went on to list all of the performers who have joined her on stage, including Tim McGraw, Justin Bieber, Hot Chelle Rae, Ronnie Dunn, Kenny Chesney, Ellen DeGeneres and Usher, before ending with a final word of gratitude for her fans.
“I’m so happy we had so many to play for this year,” she concluded. “You have made my year. Thank you so much!”
