Country/Pop singer Taylor Swift was honored at this year’s 2012 Academy Of Country Music Awards as the “Entertainer of the Year.”

While accepting her award Sunday night (Apr 1) in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, the 22-year-old thanked her fans for their votes, and one fan in particular: 18 year old Kevin McGuire who is battling cancer and was hospitalized earlier that day.

“He’s not here but I promised him I would give him a shout out. Kevin and all your family and your friends, thank you for wanting to take me to the ACMs,” Swift said.

This is the second year in a row Taylor Swift has picked up the CMA “Entertainer of the Year” trophy.

Prior to the CMAs, Swift was also presented with the “Big Help” award by First Lady Michelle Obama at the 2012 Kids’ Choice Awards.
