Lainey Wilson is crowned the Country Music Association's first female Entertainer of the Year in over a decade.
The last woman to win the coveted award was Taylor Swift back in 2011. Taylor Swift also took home the honor in 2009, and The Chicks won it in 2000.
The ride just keeps getting wilder. Country music has wrapped its arms around me in ways I could’ve never imagined. This is the dream y’all. It all feels so divinely lead. From the bottom of my heart, thank you, thank you, thank you 🙏🏻 🙌🏻❤️😭 #CMAawards pic.twitter.com/7VTd1rvSyC— Lainey Wilson (@laineywilson) November 9, 2023
