Taylor Swift dominated the 2009 CMT Music Awards, nabbing a Video of the Year award and winning fans by rapping with T-Pain.
Swift's collaboration with T-Pain, "Thug Story," was a rap take on her country hit, "Love Story." Swift poked fun at her squeaky clean image. The pre-recorded skit ended when Swift was bleeped out. She insisted she only said "yo."
"Love Story" won Video of the Year. Swift also won Female Video of the Year. Brad Paisley won Male Video of the Year.
The night featured a diverse set of performances, including some collaborations. Swift collaborated with Def Leppard, and Sugarland sang with the B-52s.
