Always look at the bright side of life, Taylor Nation.

Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who’s never ever getting back to that magical night on September 21, 2013, we’re still trying to catch up to all the news about the Princess in Red.

According to the Associated Press via ABC News, the Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar will be the second ever recipient of the CMA Pinnacle Award. The award is only given to an artist who has “achieved worldwide success and recognition that’s unique to country music”. The first ever recipient was Garth Brooks. The fact she’s already announced as the winner probably takes some of the edge off.

She is nominated for six awards: Entertainer of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, Single of the Year for ”Highway Don’t Care” with Tim McGraw and Keith Urban, Album of the Year for RED, Musical Event of the Year for ”Highway Don’t Care” with Tim McGraw and Keith Urban and Music Video of the Year for ”Highway Don’t Care” with Tim McGraw and Keith Urban.

The Enchantress is also scheduled to perform a special rendition of “Red” along with Alison Krauss, Vince Gill, Sam Bush, Edgar Meyer and Eric Darken.

You might not like to hear this, but her chances of winning EOTY diminish a bit by winning the Pinnacle Award. That’s not to say she doesn’t have a chance – we all know that the Blonde with the Sparkly Guitar has been known to beat the odds before. Nevertheless, the results are in the hands of the Country Music Association. No fan voting for this one.
