Young Taylor Swift grabbed four CMA Awards, including Entertainer, Female Vocalist, Album and Music Video of the Year at The 43rd Annual CMA Awards.

The 19-year-old Swift is the youngest performer to ever win the award and the first woman since Shania Twain in 1999.

“I’ll never forget this moment,” an emotional Swift said in a statement, “because at this moment everything that I have ever wanted just happened to me.” Swift also joked about her infamous Kanye West interruption experience at the VMA’s. “I want to thank every single person here tonight for not running up on stage during this speech,” she joked.
