CMA Award Winners: Did Taylor Swift Walk Away Empty-Handed?


Taylor Swift saw a lot of green earlier this week when her fourth album, Red, sold a whopping 1.2 million copies in its first week, but did she also see gold at the 46th annual Country Music Awards? Despite her three nominations, the young singer — who was nominated for Entertainer of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, and Musical Event of the Year — had plenty of competition: Swift faced off against country giants like Miranda LambertKenny Chesney, Carrie Underwood, and Jason Aldean and pop greats like Kelly Clarkson and… Snoop Dogg(?!).

But did Swift get the chance to break out her patented surprise face during Thursday night’s awards, hosted by Brad Paisley and Underwood? Or did country power couple Lambert and Blake Shelton find cause to celebrate? See the full winners list below to find out!
