Swift takes Best Country Album Grammy

Sunday, January 31, 2010 – Taylor Swift won the Grammy for Best Country Album Sunday for "Fearless."

Open mouthed when she got on stage in Los Angeles, Swift said, "This is my first time walking up these steps accepting a Grammy on national TV." She thanked her label, Big Machine, for allowing her to write every song on the disc.

Swift said she keeps "thinking back to second grade" where there would be a talent contest, and people might talk about winning a Grammy. "It seems like an impossible dream. I feel like I'm standing here accepting an impossible dream right now."

Swift won over George Strait's "Twang," Zac Brown Band's "The Foundation," Keith Urban's "Defying Gravity" and Lee Ann Womack's "Call Me Crazy."

Swift won two Grammys earlier in the evening.

Swift's songwriting always has been one of her strengths, and that continues to be the case here - both lyrically and musically. Put simply, Swift knows a lot about penning ...
CD review - Fearless Taylor Swift took the county world by storm with her huge selling debut and its five hit singles. With a huge marketing push and myspace, Swift was on her way. Kind of like an Avril Lavigne for the teen female country set. Sophomore slump? There's no indication of that. Swift once again writes her material - all 13 songs here with help sometimes from Liz Rose, Colbie Caillat and John Rich. Swift writes of what she knows about - relationships and teen love come and gone in songs speak to her fans. ...
