–Taylor Swift curled up with her dogs, a friend, and her mom at 8:30am this morning to watch the announcement of the nominations for the 43rd Annual CMA Awards. Taylor ended up with 4 nominations, including Entertainer of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year and Music Video of the Year for “Love Story.” The last time a solo female artist was nominated for Entertainer of the Year was Faith Hill in 2000. Shania Twain was the last female artist to claim the trophy in 1999. She is also the youngest to ever be nominated in the Entertainer of the Year Category. Congrats Taylor!
Taylor was so excited she recorded a video of her reactions to each nomination and also tweeted: I am jumping up and down surrounded by dogs and my mom and screaming like it’s Christmas morning. I’ll never forget this.
