Queen of the CMAs.

Little Big Town’s Taylor Swift-penned track “Better Man” won Song of the Year at the Country Music Awards.

Swift couldn’t attend the awards ceremony because she’s busy preparing for her performance on Saturday Night Live in New York City this weekend, but she did manage to catch the victory live on TV. Her reaction? Shock. Swift looks off to her left in utter disbelief.

“In NYC for SNL rehearsals. I LOVE YOU @littlebigtown and CMAs,” she tweeted.

Little Big Town accepted the award on behalf of Swift. “Taylor, wherever you are, thank you for this beautiful song and for loving songs and loving Nashville,” said front woman Karen Fairchild on stage.

No better way to kick off Reputation than with a big win like this! Watch the moment unfold below:
