[artist id="2389485"]Taylor Swift[/artist] is proving to be quite the country megastar. The VMA-nominated singer has garnered four CMA Awards nominations this year, including one in the male-dominated Entertainer of the Year category, The Associated Press reports.
If breaking through the glass ceiling weren’t enough of an accomplishment for the 19-year-old crossover star, she also happens to be the youngest person to be nominated for an Entertainer of the Year award. She goes up against Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, George Strait and Keith Urban.
Swift’s other nominations include Female Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year (for her chart-topping Fearless) and Music Video of the Year (for “Love Story”). Other Music Video of the Year nominees include Randy Houser’s “Boots On,” Billy Currington’s “People Are Crazy,” Paisley’s “Start a Band” and Strait’s “Troubadour.”
Jack White’s Raconteurs are nominated in the category of Musical Event of the Year for “Old Enough.” They’re up against Brooks & Dunn, Chesney, Carrie Underwood and Lee Ann Womack.
“American Idol” winner Underwood is also up against Swift in the Female Vocalist of the Year category. Country heavyweights Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride and Reba McEntire are the other nominees.
The 43rd Annual CMA Awards will air on Wednesday, November 11, at 8 p.m. on ABC. In the meantime, fans can watch Swift perform live at the 2009 Video Music Awards this Sunday.
