Taylor Swift Wins Country Album of the Year at 2013 American Music Awards
Taylor Swift added another American Music Award to her collection on Sunday night (Nov. 24), winning the prize for 2013 Country Album of the Year.
The songstress was up against fierce competition, with two of country’s top acts — Florida Georgia Line and Luke Bryan — also nominated. However, ‘Here’s to the Good Times’ and ‘Crash My Party’ just couldn’t keep up with the phenomenal sensation that ‘Red’ created.
This is Swift’s third time to be victorious in this category, and she was, as always, completely grateful. “Wow,” she told the 2013 AMAs crowd. “You know, with this album, I want to thank Big Machine Record Label and Universal Records. ” She also mentioned that she was able to make a completely different record this time around, giving props to her fans. “The reason I was able to do that was because of the fans,” Swift revealed. “I cannot believe what you’ve done in the last year.”
“The fact the album came out almost exactly a year ago and the fact that six million of you went out and bought it is crazy!” she concluded.
It may be crazy, but it’s because she’s just so crazy good; congrats to the songstress on this win!
