Taylor Swift Takes Home Five American Music Awards

Posted in News on November 23, 2009

Taylor Swift enjoyed yet another night of sweeping wins at the 2009 American Music Awards, held Sunday, November 22. As a bold testament to the young singer/songwriter’s broad appeal, Swift went home with Pop-Rock Female Artist, Country Female Artist, Country Album, and Adult Contemporary Artist trophies, a build-up which fittingly culminated with the all-genre Artist of the Year title.

Late BMI Icon Michael Jackson received Male Artist honors in the Pop-Rock and Soul-R&B categories, as well as Album wins in both of the preceding genres for the top-selling Number Ones. International trendsetters the Black Eyed Peas earned Pop-Rock and Soul-R&B Band, Duo or Group honors, while top-shelf musician, singer and songwriter Keith Urban took home the Country Male Artist prize and perennial fan favorites Rascal Flatts walked away with the well-earned Country Band, Duo or Group crown. The Twilight Soundtrack was named top Soundtrack Album, and auspicious country quartet Gloriana claimed the T-Mobile Breakthrough Artist Award.
