Hello Taylor Nation!
Taylor Swift joined Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum, Kenny Chesney and Brad Paisley at the 2011 CMT Artists of the Year!
The show was actually taped at an earlier date and just aired today. Hosted by Rob Lowe, the show paid tribute to all the honorees with performances by Gavin DeGraw, Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum, the Avett Brothers, the All-American Rejects and Brad Paisley with Joe Walsh. The Queen of Sparks got to heard her song Mean played by the All-American Rejects with a mix of their own song Gives You Hell. Faith Hill was on hand to present the Enchantress with her award.
And what has the Outspoken One been up to? She’s been working on her fourth studio album. No big deal. Incidentally, that strong breeze of wind you just felt was caused by thirteen million Taylor fans taking a deep breath and almost passing out.
Katy Perry also said hello via a video message. Was there a cat reference at the end or did I just imagined that?
