She will be the youngest woman ever to receive this honor...
The country/crossover sweetheart, Taylor Swift, has been named this year’s Billboard Woman Of The Year.
Her combined accomplishments, including a majorly successful Speak Now Tour, the album crossing 1 million copies sold in its first week, and oodles of Billboard chart records, made the 21-year-old star a good choice for the coveted title (though we think Adele would have made a good choice, too). And at 21, Swift is the youngest woman to ever receive the honor.
“Taylor has shown the power of good songwriting with music that has transcended genres, and we’re thrilled to recognize all of her successes over the past year by honoring her with the Billboard Woman of the Year Award,”Billboard’s Editorial Director, Bill Werde, said in a statement.
“At the young age of 21, Taylor has already made a major impact on music and has been an incredible role model for aspiring singers/songwriters and young women everywhere. I look forward to watching her career continue to flourish in the years to come.”Taylor and other powerful women in music will be honored at the Billboard Women In Music event on Friday, December 2 at Capitale in New York City.
