Taylor Swift We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together Video

Taylor Swift continually proves that she’s a world-renowned country hitmaker. The superstar will soon appear at the 2012 Canadian Country Music Association Awards, where she’s being honored with the inaugural Generation Award.

The CCMA Generation Award was designed to honor country music stars whose talent has propelled them onto an international stage. Not only is Ms. Swift the top-selling artist in Canada, but the sweet songstress has had singles top the country and pop radio charts all around the globe. Swift is also one of the Top 5-selling digital music artists worldwide, and is the top-selling digital artist in country music history.

“With her increased and continual success on the international scene, Taylor Swift embodies every aspect of the CCMA Generation Award,” said Ted Ellis, Chair of CCMA Board of Directors, in a statement. “Since 2010, she has not only become the biggest selling country artist in Canada, she is also one of the top selling artists in the world, across all genres.┬áTaylor has already been recognized with over 100 prestigious international industry honors (including three previous CCMA awards for Top Selling Album) and she maintains a connection with her 200 million fans online daily. We look forward to this presentation during the 2012 CCMA Awards broadcast.”

Swift has single-handedly converted a lot of pop music lovers to country music since she has become one of the most influential artists of her generation. It only makes sense that the CCMA would choose country music’s sweetheart as this year’s recipient of the w0qw CCMA Generation Award!

The 2012 CCMA Awards will be broadcasted live across Canada on Sunday, September 9 at 8PM, with encore airings on CMT (Canada) starting at 10PM ET

Performers on the broadcast will include Gord Bamford, Jason Blaine, Paul Brandt, Dean Brody, Johnny Reid, Jason Aldean, Pistol Annies, Eric Church and Miranda Lambert, among others.
