Taylor Swift won her second CMA Entertainer of Year trophy yesterday, which is a huge achievement. I am fairly certain that two EOYs has been done by one other chick (Barbara Mandrell). It has happened a few times by dudes (Kenny Chesney, Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson, Vince Gill, George Strait, Hank Williams Jr). That’s a collection of pretty impressive singers!
So I’m not sure which is more impressive: winning her second EOY or her 2009 CMA domination. That was when she won her first Entertainer of Year and Best Female Vocalist awards – along with Best Album (Fearless) and Music Video of the Year in 2009 with “Love Story.” But it’s important to realize she won BOTH the Best Female Vocalist and EOY in the same year in 2009.
Winning both EOY and Best Vocalist in the same year has only been done by one other chick (Loretta Lynn) but done a few times by dudes (Alan Jackson, Keith Urban, Vince Gill, Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, Glen Campbell). Surprisingly, Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney, George Strait, and Alabama haven’t done the double. They’ve each won EOY and Best Male Vocalist, but it was in different years. I think Carrie Underwood should be included in this discussion because she won Female Vocalist 3 years in a row, but lost out in EOY to Chesney. Let’s be serious here, she should have won at least ONE of those three years, which would’ve given her the double (EOY/Vocalist).
Frankly, I am surprised Taylor didn’t win more awards this year, especially for Best Album (Speak Now). I guess triple-platinum just isn’t good enough anymore and most sales of any artist in a single year doesn’t mean anything. Man, I thought that Best Album was a lock for sure. Her other nominations were for Music Video of the Year and Song of the Year with “Mean” but I didn’t think those would beat out The Band Perry. So that’s ok, but c’mon! She only releases albums every other year so she really competes every other year.
She was nominated for Song of the Year in 2009, but didn’t win that. It pisses me off that she’s never won a Song of the Year award. Speaking of, her new album – not named yet – has 25 songs penned already! And if she continues at her current level, I know that all 25 of them could win Song of the Year. She deserved more – let’s be honest, I wouldn’t be happy unless she won every award except Best Male Vocalist – but at least she got the most prestigious award this year, EOY! Congratulations Taylor!
