Taylor Swift wins CMA award for country hit she wrote

Hosts Brad Paisley left and Carrie Underwood speak at the 51st annual CMA Awards at the Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday Nov. 8 2017 in Nashville Tenn

The first award from the reputation era is a country award for Swift's incredible talent in songwriting. Tonight, November 8, the moment of truth was revealed and Swift was indeed crowned the victor for Song of the Year.

Little Big Town had nothing but kind words for Swift, who actually sent them "Better Man" as a "no pressure" listener to them via e-mail, as the band's Karen Fairchild explained to Billboard. In fact, between 2007 and 2013, Swift won 11 Country Music Association Awards and was nominated for 14 more.

"Hey we didn't write this". This year, the accolade went to the 2016 single "Better Man", which was made famous by Little Big Town.

"So we want to say thanks to Taylor Swift", Fairchild said.


Little Big Town would later share backstage that Swift tweeted out her congratulations and could not attend because she was rehearsing for "Saturday Night Live" in New York City.

"Taylor, wherever you are, thank you for this handsome song and for loving songs and loving Nashville", Fairchild shared.

In NYC for SNL rehearsals. Well, she's just 48 hours away from dropping her highly awaited new album Reputation, and who knows what kind of surprises that's going to come with!
