Taylor Swift Wins Favorite Country Female Artist at 2013 AMAs
Taylor Swift can now say that she has 13 American Music Awards in her collection, as the crossover superstar pocketed Favorite Female Artist – Country at the 2013 AMAs on Sunday night (Nov. 24).
The singer was once again up against Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood, which is exactly the way things unfolded last year. And just like last year’s awards, Swift nabbed the title for Favorite Country Female, making it the sixth consecutive time she’s received the trophy.
“Amazing!” she gushed while accepting the honor. “I want to thank country radio and also pop radio, Hot AC and AC Radio because the fact that all of those different genres of music play songs off of my album makes me not have to think about genre when I’m writing songs.”
Swift added that instead, she can focus on what’s important — songwriting. The ‘Red’ hitmaker also made sure to mention her fans, saying, “With caring about lyrics and doing covers on YouTube, I love how you make it your own and I just love you; don’t ever change.”
This was the second time the country-pop star was onstage during the 2013 AMAs evening, as she also won Country Album of the Year.
