Taylor took home the trophy for ACM ‘Entertainer of the Year’ for the second year in a row!
During her acceptance speech, she gave a beautiful mention to Kevin McGuire. Kevin is the high school senior who was supposed to be Taylor’s date for the ACM Awards last night. (You can read the story here.) We were terribly sad to hear that Kevin was admitted to the hospital again, and could not make the awards. Taylor promised to give him a shout out and to make it up to him. We want to let Kevin know that we are thinking of him and he is in our prayers.
Taylor posted this video to her Facebook page shortly after winning to say thank-you to her fans! I cannot say enough good things about Taylor Swift. We know she is talented, but she just continues to impress with her class and kindness. She has my continued support.
Thank-you for participating in our ACM Awards’ polls this past week! We love hearing from you all and appreciate the feedback.
We compiled the results from our polls. Here is how our awesome ‘Keepin’ It Country’ readers voted…
The reigning American Idol champ, Scotty McCreery, was the favorite for ‘New Artist’ with 51% of the votes.
The ‘Vocal Duo of the Year’ category was by far our most popular poll. Thank-you so much for voting, and for all of your great comments! It was a battle of the fan bases between Steel Magnolia, Sugarland, and Thompson Square. Steel Magnolia fans were impressively representing for their duo and won the poll with 49% of the votes!
