Truth rating: 10

By Shari Weiss



Taylor Swift made country music history at Tuesday’s CMA Awards, where the singer was the second artist to ever receive the Pinnacle Award.


Following Garth Brooks in 2005, Swift was awarded the honor for achieving worldwide success and recognition for her unique brand of country music.

Among the music legends on stage to pay tribute were Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, George Strait, Rascal Flatts, Brad Paisley, and Keith Urban , along with video messages from Mick Jagger, Ethel Kennedy, Justin Timberlake, Reese Witherspoon, Julia Roberts and more stars.

In her acceptance speech, the songstress said, “You’re not only rewarding my hard work and exhaustion, you’re rewarding the hard work and exhaustion of my family, the label, and anyone that works for me, and most of all, the fans that fill stadiums.”

Swift also performed a special rendition of her song “Red,” and took home other awards.
