Country music star Taylor Swift has raked in another honor. She’s been named Billboard Magazine‘s Woman of the Year.
“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,” says Bill Werde, Billboard’s Editorial Director. “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.”
At 21-years-old, Taylor Swift is the youngest person to have received that honor. Previous recipients include Beyonce, Reba McEntire and Fergie.
She will be honored on December 2 at the 2011 Billboard Women in Music event in New York.
