"Taylor Makes History With BMI Pop Song of the Year Award"

Hey!! Remember the news I told you about the award that Taylor will win when she is inducted into the sonwriter's Hall of Fame? Well, here is a video with information about it!

Also, here I leave you an article with information you might find interesting, from
Taylor Swift won top honors at last night’s BMI Pop Awards in Los Angeles, taking home the prestigious Song of the Year award for her multi-genre international #1 smash “Love Story.”

20-year old Taylor is the youngest songwriter in history to win this honor, and the first country winner in more than a decade. The most recent country songwriters honored with this award were Stephanie Bentley for “Breathe” in 2000, Shania Twain for “You’re Still The One” in 1998, and Dolly Parton in 1993 for “I Will Always Love You.”

“Love Story,” which Taylor wrote by herself, was honored for receiving more radio airplay in the past year than any other pop song. “Love Story” earned BMI’s Country Song of the Year honors in 2009, and Taylor also won BMI’s Country Song of the Year in 2008, for “Teardrops On My Guitar.” That year she became the youngest songwriter in any genre to win the honor, and Taylor is the first female songwriter in history to win back-to-back BMI Song of the Year awards, in any genre.

“Love Story,” from Taylor’s 6x-Platinum FEARLESS album, topped Billboard’s Country, Pop and A/C charts in the US, and became a global sensation, reaching #1 in countries including the UK, Canada, Australia, Singapore and New Zealand. “Love Story” is also the most downloaded country single in US history.
