The "old" Taylor Swift may be accepting a CMA Award in November.
Before she declared her former sweet girl image to be "dead" in her new single "Look What You Made Me Do," Swift wrote Little Big Town hit "Better Man," and she's getting the recognition she deserves in the CMA Awards' Song of the Year category. And she's the only solo songwriter to be named in the category, in which her creation faces off against songs including Keith Urban's "Blue Ain't Your Color," Sam Hunt's "Body Like a Back Road," Jon Pardi's "Dirt on My Boots" and Miranda Lambert's "Tin Man."
The nominees were announced Monday morning on "Good Morning America" and Twitter.
"Better Man" is also nominated for Single of the Year, but Swift only gets the glory if it wins Song of the Year.
Take a look at all of the nominees below to see who will be competing on country music's biggest night when the 51st Annual CMA Awards go down in Nashville, Tennessee on Nov. 8. The show, hosted for a 10th time by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, will air on ABC at 8 p.m. ET.
