Taylor Swift: ACM's Entertainer of the Year!

Taylor Swift holds on tight to her award up high during the 2011 ACM Awards held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Sunday (April 3).

The 21-year-old musician took home the night’s top honor: Entertainer of the Year!

“This is the first time I’ve ever won this, and I’m losing my mind!” Taylor shared. “The fact that this was from the fans is so beautiful. We just got back from a tour of Asia, so thanks for not forgetting about me. The fact that this is from the fans — you are the best thing that has ever, ever happened to me.”

Taylor was up against Jason Aldean, Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert, Brad Paisley, and Keith Urban for the award.

FYI: Taylor wore an alice+olivia dress during her performance. 25+ pics inside…

    I am happy for her. Taylor deserves the award for sure.

    Brad Paisley deserved to win. She has done nothing to be deserving of the award. And no, Selling albums does not make her more talented than All of the other nominees. Brad Paisley has done way more. He can sing, his how is amazing and he plays a mean guitar. Taylor sucks live.
    She is the most over rated act in ‘country’, her music is POP, for crying out loud.

    Country music died a little bit more tonight.

    At least someone who can sing, won Female Vocalist.

    She doesn’t deserve the award! She only got the pity votes cause Jake dumped her retarded ass.

    she’s so beautiful, def deserved that, I mean, she has a great album and is always around, everyone knows her, the others are like, “Carrie Under…who?”
    Taylor is amazing

    So happy for Taylor, she deserves that award. Taylor is amazing & I loved the way she & her band performed “Mean” last night.

  • Miia

    Great performance that night! I love this song :)

    Taylor totally deserved this award, she’s amazing!

    @mvghdf wow really? yeah Brad Paisley is talented as were all the nominees, but Taylor deserved it too. She has a great album, LOVES her fans (which were the ones who voted), just got back from overseas (not many country artists can say that), etc… And yes she can be poppy, but did you not see her performance in which she played a banjo?? nothing gets much more country than that.

    I also think it’s funny how other artists fans must constantly attack miss TSwift, yet Taylor’s fans never tear others apart. hmm…

    Taylor Swift is an insult to real country fans. Her following is mindless teeny boppers. She has done nothing up to this point to earn that award. She will never do anything to earn one even if she lives to be 100.

    The “oh-my-god-I-won?” face is annoying now.

  • ness

    only reason she won that is because you little retards voted for her.

    Can I ask what the heck Jake Gyllenhaal even has to do with anything? What do the people in country music care about that? She won because she deserved to win. She didn’t earn “pity votes.” I’m sick of hearing about how she only wins awards because of Kanye West, Joe Jonas, Jake Gyllenhaal, etc. Those are the most ridiculous reasons ever. She won because the people who love her, aka her fans, voted for her. She deserves the award. Her music is NOT pop. Did you watch that performance? It’s one of the most country-esque songs she’s ever written. I love Brad. And Miranda. And Keith. And pretty much everybody else. And yes, I think they all do deserve Entertainer. That’s why they were nominated. But I do believe the right person won.

    She deserves Entertainer of the Year. She introduced a lot of young fans (& girls) to country music. She entertains people CONSTANTLY while on tour. And yes, she doesn’t have the BEST voice. But she isn’t bad. She’s GOOD live. And she puts on a great show. Her album was amazing. This wasn’t album of the year. She didn’t win that award. It’s not based on album sales. Her song writing is amazing.

    She inspires SO many people to be themselves. And to chase after their dreams.
