Swift becomes second woman to win multiple CMA entertainer awards

Thursday, November 10, 2011 – Taylor Swift became the second woman ever to win the CMA Entertainer of the Year award two years in a row.

Until last night's award, Barbara Mandrell was the only woman to have done so. Alabama, Hank Williams Jr., George Strait, Garth Brooks, Vince Gill, Alan Jackson and Kenny Chesney all won it more than once.

This was Swift's sixth CMA award and the only one she won at the CMAs.

During her thank yous, Swift thanked those guest artists who showed up at her gigs. Swift thanked each of them by name from the stage last night, acknowledging every artist who "out of the goodness of their hearts, showed up and performed for the fans at my show." She also gave a big shout out to "all the fans who filled up those stadiums and arenas all over the world this year."

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. ...
