It's a good day for Kenny Chesney, who received seven Country Music Association award nominations Tuesday, but it was newcomer Taylor Swift who had the best and most immediate reaction.
"I'm having a really good day," said an otherwise speechless Swift, 18, who forgot she still had one more category to announce. "This is awesome."
She is up for female vocalist of the year against veterans, Alison Krauss, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride and Carrie Underwood.
