It turned out to be a huge night for Taylor Swift at the 43rd Annual Country Music Awards. The singer took home the Entertainer of the Year award, and became the youngest person ever, at the age of 19, to win the coveted award.
She also won awards for Female Vocalist of the Year, Music Video of the Year for her song “Love Story” and Album of the Year with Fearless.
“I’ll never forget this moment because at this moment everything that I ever wanted has just happened to me,” a tearful Swift said when accepting her award.
The fan favorite also had some fun at the expense of rap star Kanye West, who last month interrupted her acceptance speech at the MTV Music Video Awards by rushing onto the stage and telling the audience that R&B star Beyonce — and not Swift — should have won best female video.
“I want to thank every single person here tonight for not running up on stage during this speech,” Swift said when picking up her trophy for female vocalist.
