(AP) -- Taylor Swift has won her second straight entertainer of the year trophy at the Academy of Country Music Awards.

She bested her all-male competitors, including four-time winner Kenny Chesney, on Sunday night.

The 22-year-old superstar had the second best-selling album of 2011 with her multiplatinum "Speak Now," and Bilboard recently named her as their top moneymaker of the last year, raking in an estimated $35 million. She won two Grammys for her song "Mean" earlier this year and just Saturday, First Lady Michelle Obama lauded Swift at the Kids Choice Awards for her charity work.

Swift also beat out Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton and Jason Aldean.
