This is Taylor Swift‘s world and we’re all just living in it. Tonight at the 43rd Annual CMA Awards, Taylor took home awards for Video of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year AND Entertainer of the Year.

Backstage in the press room, Taylor told the media how she was going to celebrate.

“Tonight I’m just gonna dance around and freak out,” she said, “because I never imagined that the unattainable thing I always held in my imagination would happen to me at 19. I couldn’t be more grateful but I love a challenge, and right now the challenge is to find that next challenge.”

Also backstage, show co-host — and Male Vocalist of the Year winner – Brad Paisley commented on Taylor’s win.

“Next year we’re not gonna take any opening acts out,” joked Brad, referring to the fact that Taylor opened for him this year on tour. ”Kidding…couldn’t be prouder of her.  She has taken the music world by storm. She’s the biggest artist in music by far right now. It’s a hands down she’s the entertainer in country music now.  [She] has an amazing amount of natural talent and momentum.  Her team is also doing everything right.  I’m not at all surprised at how fast she’s gone.”
