So the tables were turned as the 2013 CMA Award winners were revealed. Not only for me but also for other Internet predictions centres. Taylor Swift ended up taking home the expected Musical Event of the Year and beat mega-favourite Carrie’s “Blown Away” at Music Video of the Year -both awards were shared with Tim McGraw & Keith Urban-. Taylor also took home two special prizes: CMA Pinnacle Award and the International Achievement Award both for her global achievements.
Kacey Musgraves only took home New Artist of the Year and surprisingly enough lost Song of the Year to “I Drive Your Truck”. However she was not beaten by Taylor at any award. Single of the Year and Female Vocalist were earned by their expected winners: Florida Georgia Line (who also received Vocal Duo) and Miranda Lambert.
