Girl Power as Taylor takes country music's top award

02 APRIL 2012

Taylor Swift wins her second consecutive entertainer of the year award at the Country Music Awards – just 24 hours after being saluted by Michelle Obama for her charity work.

The 22-year-old becomes just the second woman to win the award twice after Carrie Underwood.

She beat an all-male field that included Kenny Chesney, who failed to win anything despite being nominated in nine categories.





Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson were the night's top winners with two awards apiece.

Miranda shouted: "Seriously?" to her fans as she picked up the trophy for Four The Record.

It was her third album of the year win.

She also picked up her third female vocalist of the year, scoring a family sweep as her husband Blake Shelton won male vocalist.
