Taylor Swift Lands Record Sixth Title From The Nashville Songwriters Organization
Taylor Swift has been named Songwriter/Artist of the Year by the Nashville Songwriters Association International for the sixth time.
She first won the title in 2007, and on Tuesday she captured the award for the fifth consecutive time.
The singer charted 14 hit songs in just one year, from July 2012 to June 2013, including "Red", "I Knew You Were Trouble" and "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together".
Taylor's sixth award puts her ahead of country legends Vince Gill and Alan Jackson, who each have five titles.
The award, along with her five others, will be displayed at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum's new Taylor Swift Education Center in Nashville, Tenn. The center's grand opening is set for this Saturday.
Taylor donated $4 million to help fund the building's construction, the biggest donation in the Hall's history.
