LAS VEGAS (AP) - Taylor Swift captured entertainer of the year at the Academy of Country Music awards Sunday night, beating out the likes of Keith Urban, Brad Paisley and the night’s overall winner, Miranda Lambert.

Swift had been nominated for four awards; it was her only win of the night, but it was the biggest one. An excited and nervous Swift said she was losing her mind after getting the award.

It was the first time 21-year-old had won the night’s most prestigious honor; the award is voted on by the fans.
