LAS VEGAS, Nov. 4 (UPI) -- Taylor Swift will receive the Pinnacle Award at Wednesday's 47th annual CMA Awards ceremony in Nashville, ABC announced Monday.

The Country Music Association presents its Pinnacle Award periodically to an artist "who has achieved both national and international prominence through concert performances and record sales at levels unique in country music," ABC said in a release.

"I can't think of a better opportunity than country music's biggest night to present an award of this magnitude to an artist of this caliber," CMA Board President Ed Hardy said in a statement. "I've known Taylor since she was 16. She came to my office with her mom to play her music and I was amazed. Taylor's outstanding career epitomizes the definition of the Pinnacle Award."
