Taylor Swift recently sat down with the Associated Press to discuss her new album, her CMA nominations and Ed Sheeran. Below is excerpted from that interview. The full interview can be found on Nashville’s own NewsChannel5.com.
AP: You’re up for entertainer of the year again at the CMAs on Nov. 6. If you win, you’ll become the first woman with three wins, passing Barbara Mandrell. How do you feel about that?
Swift: I think winning entertainer of the year would be an unbelievable thing to happen in my life because I still sometimes can’t believe I’ve gotten to win that twice. So a third time, what I think it would mean for my fans, would be the biggest feeling I would have. Just knowing the, I think, 1.3 million people we saw this year in the U.S. would get to know that they contributed to that and that they being frenzied and covering themselves in Christmas lights and making signs and learning the lyrics and screaming at the top of their lungs and dancing for two hours straight at my show somehow moved the needle and impacted my life in a way that I’ll remember when I’m 85 if I get to be 85.
