Taylor Swift might have walked away from the 46th annual CMA Awards empty handed but the 22-year-old singer has a lot to celebrate this week after her latest album, "Red," sold 1.2 million copies in its first week.
OTRC.com caught up with Swift just before the award show on November 1 and spoke to the singer about the success of her album and her support of the East Coast following the damage from superstorm Sandy.

Taylor Swift has revealed which single she will be performing at the CMA Awards on Thursday.
"We've had an amazing week and I have a new album out called 'Red' and the song I'm performing on the CMAs is a song called 'Begin Again,'" Swift said in a promotional video for the Awards show. "This has been the most unbelievable feeling, putting out my fourth album and having fans buy 1.2 million of it in the first week - that's something I never expected as a possibility. I'm just blown away and I'm walking around with a perpetual smile on my face. So I think for me, the feeling of going into the CMAs is such an amazing feeling of perpetual feeling of celebration, joy and appreciation."
Miranda Lambert and her husband Blake Shelton took home Female and Male Vocalist of the Year awards at the 2011 Country Music Association Awards on November 9, but the singer says she doesn't plan to get a big head.
"I think I'll always be the same," Lambert told OnTheRedCarpet.com before the 45th Annual CMA Awards. "I have a good foundation and great parents - a mom that would tell me to get off my high horse in a second if I needed to. I'm really just a normal country girl, I just happen to have a really great job."
Taylor Swift says she is "freaking out" over winning Entertainer of the Year, the top prize at the CMA Awards, for the second time.
It was the only award the 21-year-old singer took home at the Country Music Association's annual ceremony. The event took place on Wednesday, November 9, in Nashville and aired live on ABC.
