Taylor Swift won the first award of the night, for Best Country Album. I really don’t understand that at all. I like Taylor, I always have. But I can’t see her winning Best COUNTRY Album when she is up against someone like Keith Urban, George Strait, Leeann Womack, and Zac Brown Band. Those people are country. Taylor, not so much.
Miranda Lambert and Keith Urban were on stage to present the award to Best New Artist. That award went to Zac Brown Band, and I was happy!!! The performance they did later in the show was absolutely awesome, too. And I’m really glad they won.
I think the best performance of the night was the tribute to Michael Jackson, which featured Celine Dion, Jennifer Hudson, Carrie Underwood and Smokey Robinson.
In addition to Best Country Album, Taylor also won Best Album of the Year.
