taylor swift american music awards win 111

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift is the darling of American music, as evidenced by the 23-year-old earning four trophies at last night’s (Nov. 24) American Music Awards. Swift took home the night’s top honor, Artist of the Year, a title she previously took home in 2011.

She also took home trophies for Favorite Album, Country (for RED), along with Favorite Female Artist, Country, and Favorite Female Artist, Pop/Rock, solidifying her reign as an artist who can successfully straddle both genres. Swift has held the title of Favorite Female Artist, Country, since 2008.

Duo Florida Georgia Line won their first American Music Award, earning the all-genre honor of Single of the Year for their remix of “Cruise” (featuring Nelly).

Meanwhile, Luke Bryan repeated his win in the Favorite Male Artist, Country category, while Lady Antebellum walked away with the trophy for Favorite Band, Duo or Group, Country. The trio has held that title since 2010.

Matthew West was honored as Favorite Artist, Contemporary Inspirational.
