It’s been a long time since Taylor Swift was considered a country singer, but if you think back far enough, you might remember it.

In 2011, Swift was still on the country music radar and because of that she earned the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Country Artist.

When she took the stage to accept her award she proved once again why there are so many fans who are diehard Swifty lovers.

After Elton John announced singer as the winner, she was elated, and immediately thanked her fans.

Isn’t she just the sweetest?
