What’s up Taylor Nation,

Here at the Swift Agency, still a guy that can’t afford a Maserati but I might be able to get myself a shopping cart, we’re happy to say the Enchantress has received 5 nominations for the 48th ACM Awards! I’m specially glad that RED is finally up for its first nomination as Album of The Year. Here’s Taylor’s full list:

  • Entertainer of the Year
  • Female Vocalist of the Year
  • Album of the Year for RED (Artist)
  • Album of the Year for RED (Producer)
  • Video of the Year for We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together

Another favorite of mine, Eric Church, has the lead with seven nominations. He’s up for Male Vocalist of the Year, a second nod for Album of the Year and Video of the Year and nominated twice as artist and composer for Song of the Year for “Springsteen” which is also up for Single of the Year. To top it off he has Vocal Event of the Year for “The Only Way I Know” with Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan. Brantley Gilbert, Jana Kramer and Florida Georgia Line are up for ACM New Artist of the Year.
