The accolades just keep coming for Country music superstar Taylor Swift who made history last night when she became the youngest winner to be named Entertainer of the Year at the CMAs. The 19-year-old walked away with 4 awards at the 2009 Country Music Association Awards.

She said winning the CMA's highest honor was the highlight of her life. "I think about 37 minutes ago is what stands out for me my whole life," she told reporters after the show.

Taylor won Best Music Video, Best Album, Best Female Vocalist & Entertainer of The Year. She also won Song of The Year for "Love Story" at the BMI Country Awards 2009 on Tuesday night.

"I'll never forget this moment because in this moment everything that I have ever wanted has just happened to me," Swift said through tears.

2009 has been a stellar year for Taylor. And she owes it all to troubled rapper Kanye West who made her a household name overnight when he snatched her mic during a failed publicity stunt at the AMAs in September.

    You mean the extra PUSH to make CMA history as far as their awards go :rofl:

    I JUST don't like the headlines of these YT news-info saying the "JOKE is on Kayne" - WTF !!! Was Kayne at the CMA awards OR is Kayne a regular on the Country music circuit ??? I say Booooooooooooo :lol:

    I agree Kanye did boost her name a little bit. But dang Sandra you are reaching bout her owing it all to Kanye. First of all you know they base thier award on sales etc and probably picked the winner before that even happened.
    My ten year old daughter keeps watches Disney and she's all over it before September. She was dating a Jonas brother, she writes her own songs, shes young and pretty.

    Can you give her a little credit for her career? Lil Mama bumrushed the show and what did it do for her career?

    Thank You. This girl was already known to ppl who watch Entertainment Tonight or The Daily 10 and visit sites other than urban blogs. Give her her props. As you stated the person is chosen well in advance.

    I like Taylor Swift.........BUT, I have to agree that her sweep at the CMA's was pity driven. She didn't belong in that group of female vocalists...she's not in the same league.

  • heavn_sent

    SR FAIL! Please don't fall for SR's garbage today. You know she is prone to sarcasm, so I'm sure she's well aware that Taylor Swift was a household name long before the Kanye fiasco. How else could she have won the award in the first place...Ummm duh! "We" just started talking about her since then, but she was in their households for quite some time. Chile bye!

  • Silhouette

    Taylor has sold more albums than than anyone alive (RIP MJ) this year and her concert tickets sell out in minutes so yes she did in fact EARN this award. Lets give credit where credit is due.

    taylor was BIG in country music before Kanye, so those awards are not suprising to me. her and carrie underwood are the "beyonces" of country. she recently crossed over to the pop audience

  • Tyzgurl

    She is a really talented artist. The music industry been digging her before the Kanye incident. I just wish they would just drop it. She already roasted him on SNL and then the hosts of the CMA awards did a parody song about Kanye. How long are they going to milk it???

    I really don't think it was pity driven. I thought she was nominated for 9, she got 4.

  • Daisy

    Her dress is ugly

    I will take Carrie Underwood or betta yet Shania when she comes back out! Dixie Chicks yall can come on back out as well!

    Team Kanye :cheer:

  • licia

    her cd was selling very well and she was a huge name BEFORE the kanye thing. congrats to her either way .

  • wiggy2272003

    Daisy, why are you Team Kanye. I agree the media went way overboard with story etc but she doesn't have any control of that. She didn't go at him afterword. She did her little thing on SNL which many stars in the news.

    I didn't realize her and Kanye were on opposing teams.

  • ~LovLi~

    She's also a pretty good (guest) actress (CSI:Vegas) and comedienne (SNL/ Thug Story ft T-Pain)...
    The VMA incident is being brought up ad nauseam though, enough already.

  • mjoylaw

    On another note, all this is happening to this girl way too young..she is only 19, I hope she has a strong support system

  • mjoylaw

    I don't wanna see another Britney Spears..okay I'm out
