Last night, the CMA Awards went off, and the winner of CMA Song Of The Year may be a bit confusing. The CMAs do it a bit different -- instead of awarding the PERFORMER for the Song of the Year, they actually award the WRITER. So even though "Better Man," performed by Little Big Town, won the CMA Song of the Year award -- Taylor Swift was actually named as the winner since she wrote the song.
Since she wasn't around, though, Little Big Town accepted in her honor.
We didn’t write this. We’re really grateful Phillip [Sweet] checked his email one night, and that song was in his email! She couldn’t be here tonight — but Taylor, wherever you are, thank you for this song and loving songs, and loving Nashville.
