2009 CMA Awards: Full Winners List, Taylor Swift Adds Three More Kudos
All the winners for this year's Country Music Association Awards have been unveiled. On November 11, LeAnn Rimes announced host Brad Paisley as Male Vocalist of the Year. He pushed aside Kenny Chesney, Darius Rucker, George Strait and Keith Urban.
Before another winner was called to the stage, Martina McBride and George took the mic. They performed "I Was Country When Country Wasn't Cool" as a tribute to Barbara Mandrell who was inducted to Hall of Fame this year.
Taylor Swift added another trophy to her collection as she snatched Female Vocalist of the Year award which was presented by Lee Ann Womack and Kris Kristofferson. "I want to thank every single person tonight for not running up on stage during my speech," Taylor said, poking at Kanye West for what he did on the stage of 2009 MTV VMAs.
Paired with Faith Hill, Tim McGraw came out, announcing who would bring home Entertainer of the Year title and the lucky one was Taylor. Calling up her band members to the stage of Sommet Center to share the glory, she said that everything she has ever wanted has happened to her.
The rest of the winners were announced off air. Music Video of the Year went to Taylor Swift's "Love Story", Musician of the Year was given to Mac McAnally and Musical Event of the Year was handed to Brad Paisley and Keith Urban.
