NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Taylor Swift says she is "absolutely walking on a cloud" over her six nominations for the American Music Awards.
"I've never been nominated six times for any award show," the country star said Tuesday before a benefit concert in Nashville. "This is just such a wonderful day for me."
Her tally, announced on Oct. 13, even beat late superstar Michael Jackson, with five nods and rapper Eminem, with four.
"It's the 13th today, and 13 is my lucky number, and that's when I found out about the AMAs. It's like, I swear, good things happen on the 13th for me, and I can't believe all those nominations."
The 19-year-old is up for the AMA's big award, artist of the year, alongside Jackson, Lady Gaga, Eminem, and rock band Kings of Leon.
