Sunday was a good day for Taylor Swift. A glowing profile by 60 Minutes' Leslie Stahl, followed by her cleaning up at the American Music Awards; she took home the awards for Favorite Country Female Artist, Artist of The Year, Favorite Country Female Artist, and Speak Now won Favorite Country Album. This, of course, follows a career that's been as consistently incredible as anyone's in music. So is Taylor used to, blase or even jaded about the success? OH, HELL NO. Swift's surprise and genuine, awe-struck, "me-really?" facial expressions are present at every concert and in front of America during awards shows. The best part is that she doesn't seem to be faking it.
