Taylor Swift will be honoured with the Pinnacle Award at tomorrow night's Country Music Association Awards, it's been announced.
The award — which was set up in 2005 and has only been awarded once before (to Garth Brooks) — aims to acknowledge "an artist who has achieved both national and international prominence through concert performances and record sales at levels unique in Country Music."
That's all very well but what does CMA President of the Board Ed Hardy have to say about it all?
"I can't think of a better opportunity than 'Country Music's Biggest Night' to present an award of this magnitude to an artist of this caliber," he gushed.
"I've known Taylor since she was 16. She came to my office with her Mom to play her music and I was amazed. Taylor's outstanding career epitomizes the definition of the Pinnacle Award."
The 'Christmases When You Were Mine' hitmaker is also nominated for six other awards on the night, but none of those seem as important let's be honest.
