Not only does the young star have the country’s No. 1 album for the second week in a row, but now she’s the youngest person to ever win BMI’s Country Songwriter of the Year award. At age 20, Swift beat out previous record holders Bill Anderson, who won at 23 in 1960, and Johnny Cash, who won at 24 in 1956. Swift also took home the BMI Award for Country Song of the Year for “You Belong With Me,” which makes her the first songwriter to win that award three times in a row. Watch the video for her award-winning tune below.
Does Taylor Swift deserve all this praise, Music Mix-ers? Do you agree with these wins?
