Taylor Swift Accepts Pinnacle Award, Breaks Down on Stage

by at . Comments

Taylor Swift became the second person ever to be honored with the Pinnacle Award at the 2013 CMA Awards, as a number of country music legends took to the stage to pay tribute to the young superstar.

Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, George Strait, Rascal Flatts and Brad Paisley - all of whom have toured with Swift - presented the artist with the trophy, while video messages played from the likes of Mick Jagger, Justin Timberlake, Reese Witherspoon and Julia Roberts.

It was a lot for Swift to take, and it resulted in a very emotional acceptance speech.

Said Swift to the thousands in attendance and millions watching at home, tears in her eyes:

“You’re not only rewarding my hard work and exhaustion, you’re rewarding the hard work and exhaustion of my family, the label, and anyone that works for me, and most of all, the fans that fill stadiums.”

Taylor did more than just talk, of course.

She also performed a special rendition of her song “Red" along with Vince Gill, Alison Krauss and Sam Bush.
