Taylor Swift Wins Entertainer of the Year at CMA Awards for the Second Time

For the second time, Taylor Swift won Entertainer of the Year at the Country Music Association Awards.

Making a Country Music Association Awards record, Taylor Swift won Entertainer of the Year for the second time. her first Entertainer of the Year award was in 2009, and now the Speak Now singer is tied with Barbara Mandrell. Swift beat out Jason Aldean, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton, and Keith Urban for the award.

after she won, Swift said: “To look out into a stadium full of people is the most overwhelming feeling – it’s a sea of people and you can’t see the end of it. They’re the ones who decide whether you’re playing in a theater or a stadium. I’m absolutely in awe of the fact that they have taken it further and further and topped themselves every single year.”

her award can be attributed to the success of Speak Now, which was released roughly a year ago. the singer is finishing the North American leg of the album’s tour this month, and in 2012, she will go overseas to do dates in Australia and New Zealand. about the tour and plans for her follow-up album, Swift told the press: “I am so proud of this tour, and the reason why it’s so much fun is because I obsess over how to treat each song. One of the things that I love about the Speak Now tour is that it’s very theatrical, and each song has its own treatment. the reason I obsess over it so much is that I obsess over writing them so much … with this next album, I’m so excited because I’ve been writing so much. We’re still in the first gear of making it, so as we finish songs and demo them in my producer’s basement, I can picture them being played on the stage. “It’s such a fun, daydreaming job to have. you spend so much of your time planning and daydreaming about the future, and it’s a blast to get to call that a career.”
