Our CMT Awards recap

Since there are apparently hundreds of Taylor Swift fans who are dedicated readers of Off The Record, we might as well blog about Taylor's night at the CMT Awards on Monday.

The girl did well.

Swift won video of the year for "Our song," and was also a hit just because she was there. Here's what she told The AP:

"I wrote that song in the 9th grade for a talent show," said the 18-year-old Swift, who won the night's top honor over Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley and Sugarland. "I never thought it would be on an album, never thought I'd record it, never thought it would be a single, never thought it would be No. 1 and certainly never thought it would win video and female video of the year."

Other cool stuff of the night was the Hannah Montana sighting -- OK, that was a joke -- and the Allison Krauss/Robert Plant duet, always an interesting mix.
