Hello Taylor Nation,
Here at the Swift Agency, still one guy who’s happy to report that the Sparkly Dressed will actually be appearing in Canada – not only this year, but next month, we’re ecstatic to report she’s receiving the CCMA’s inaugural Generation award for going “beyond the borders of the country music genre onto an international stage.”
According to CTV News, the Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar will be the first recipient of this award. She’s been the top selling performer since 2010, according to board chairman Ted Ellis. I double-checked that on the CCMA website: Speak Now won for the Top Selling Album in 2011. Fearless won two years in a row, in 2009 and 2010.
The other great cool, amazing and incredible news is that she’s been confirmed to attend. The performers scheduled for that night include Dean Brody, Terri Clark, Emerson Drive, Johnny Reid, Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Miranda Lambert and the Pistol Annies. No, Taylor is not scheduled to perform.
The CCMA Awards will take place in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on September 9. They will be broadcasted live across Canada on Sunday September 9th at 8 p.m. on CBC, with encore airings on CMT (Canada) starting at 10 p.m. E.T.
MTV News announced the Enchantress will be performing at the 2012 Video Music Awards. She will perform We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together (or WANEGBT for all you Taylorgeeks) live for the first time.
