It is one of the biggest nights of the year for country music.
And the genre’s most famous names and rising stars joined forces for the Country Music Association Awards in Nashville, Tennessee on Wednesday.
While some dispute whether or not her music is really country, that didn’t stop Taylor Swift from being a big winner at the ceremony.
Taylor was nominated for six gongs and presented with three early awards, before the live TV show.
These included Video Of The Year and Musical Event Of The Year for Highway Don't Care, a collaboration with Tim McGraw and Keith Urban.
The 23-year-old also collected the Pinnacle Award, which recognises an artist who has garnered worldwide success thanks to concert performances and record sales.
