Taylor Swift Wins 2011 American Music Award for Country Female
Taylor Swift dominated network TV tonight. While the singer was being profiled on '60 Minutes' on rival network CBS, she was also picking up another award for her growing collection at the 2011 American Music Awards, which were broadcast on ABC. Swift was the recipient of the American Music Award for Country Female, and as usual, a look of shock, awe and bewilderment crossed her lovely face when her name was announced as the winner.
"This is amazing," Swift said as she stood behind the podium to offer her heartfelt, super sweet acceptance speech. She didn't forget to thank the most important people: those who help her do what she does, her fans and her family. She continued, "We've been on tour all year. I want to thank the crew for setting up stage, and the fans for filling up stadiums and arenas and coming to see us play and caring about the music I write."
She also gave a massive shout out the family Swift, saying, "I want to thank my mom, my dad, and my brother who came with me tonight! I love you so much! This is wonderful."
Even though we always see Swift looking surprised whenever she notches a win, her expression still feels authentic. Because it is. Did we mention she looked gorgeous in a long, column-shaped gold dress and her curls blown out and swept into a side ponytail? She did!
