In all, Taylor was up for four gongs on the night, but despite her massive huge fan based and the massive success of her last album, Red, the 'I Knew You Were Trouble' songstress failed to win over the ACM judges. The Female Vocalist of the Year crown was snatched by Miranda Lambert, but the biggest shock of the night was when the Entertainer of the Year award was handed to Luke Bryan over Swift, Lambert and other favourite Blake Shelton. The other two categories she was nominated in, Album of the Year and Video of the Year, were won by Eric Church and Little Big Town respectively.
