America’s country pop/rock singer and song writer, Taylor Alison Swift has been dubbed by ’Billboard’ magazine as the Woman of the year. The 24 year old songstress is the only artist to ever receive the award more than once. The award goes to the female artist who “has shaped and inspired the music industry with her success, leadership and innovation” over the last year, and has had Katy Perry, Pink and Beyoncé as past winners.
Taylor was first named Billboard Woman of the Year in 2011, and was the youngest artist to ever receive the honour. “As one of the most influential artists of her generation”, Taylor Swift has seen incredible success on the Billboard charts,” said Janice Min, co-president and chief creative officer of Guggenheim Media’s Entertainment Group, which includes Billboard.Not only a seven-time Grammy winner, the 1989 artist has charted 6o entries on the Billboard Top 100 – the most of any female artist since her debut in 2006, as well as being the best-selling digital music artist of all time.
Another well-deserved award, Taylor can’t obviously “Shake this award off” as she will be feted at the 9th annual Billboard Women in Music Awards on Dec. 12 in New York City. Go Tay!
