Taylor Swift Acted Surprised At The CMA Awards ... Even Though She Knew She Was Being Honored

Taylor Swift knew she was being honored with the CMA Pinnacle Award last night (Nov. 6), but that didn't stop her from pulling out her, "Oh my gosh, I'm SO surprised" face.

The 23-year-old, who looked ravishing in a red Elie Saab gown, was completely shocked as Rascal Flatts, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, George Strait and Brad Paisley presented her with the award, and a video compilation created to celebrate Swift's big honor.

In the video, celebrities like Julia Roberts, Justin Timberlake, Reese Witherspoon, Mick Jagger and Ellen DeGeneres congratulate Swift on receiving the Pinnacle Award -- which made the singer-songwriter FREAK out. (And we're talking freak).

"I'm never going to forget this. Ever ever ever. @TheEllenShow @MickJagger @jtimberlake #CMAawards," she tweeted, adding, "Tonight was my favorite CMAs ever, and I'm thinking about you all tonight. So many beautiful memories this year."

Not to mention she was serenaded by "Nashville" stars and sisters Lennon and Maisy Stella, who sang "You Belong With Me" right in front of her.

FUN FACT: The Country Music Association has only given out one other Pinnacle Award in the past -- and it was to Garth Brooks in 2005. The honor is reserved for artists who have achieved the highest levels of record and concert sales and who have made an impact both on and beyond country music. (Sounds like Taylor Swift to us.)
