The 50th annual ACM awards had a touching moment last night in Nashville as Andrea Swift presented daughter Taylor with a Milestone award for her impact on country music. However, Swift broke the hearts of country music fans everywhere by intimating that she is done with the genre forever and ever.

Taylor's mum was on stage before her daughter for once and made a touching speech recounting Swift's younger years. She beamed "I've watched this milestone artist from the time she was a tangled-hair little girl growing up on our farm full of imagination and creativity until right now as she prepares for her next world tour."

A tearful Andrea then welcomed Taylor on stage by saying "It's my pleasure, my pride and my joy to introduce my daughter Taylor Swift" before adding "I’d like to thank the ACMs for honoring her in this way but I’d also like to thank the entire music community for taking such good care of her."

Swift was one of seven artists to be recognised on the night along with Miranda Lambert, Kenny Chesney, Garth Brooks, Reba McEntire, George Straigt and Brooks & Dunn. The seven recipients have all made a huge impact and each of them have carved out their places in Country Music folklore.

However, unique amongst these luminaries is Swift who, not content with conquering the country music genre, has set her sights on ruling the pop world too. In her acceptance speech last night she thanked all the fans saying "To the country music community, when I told you that I had made a pop album and that I wanted to go explore other genres, you showed me who you are with the grace you accepted that with. I will never forget it."
