Taylor thanked her fans during her Top Artist acceptance speech and noted that her relationship with the fans is the best she's ever had. Taylor also performed during the telecast on ABC, singing her hit "22," accompanied by a full dance crew.

Other country stars were also prominent on the stage, with The Band Perry reprising their No. 1 single "Better Dig Two" complete with a laser light show. The duo Florida Georgia Line introduced Kacey Musgraves, who gave an acoustic performance of her hit "Merry Go 'Round." Shania Twain and Kid Rock served as presenters during the telecast.
