Taylor Swift Breaks Songwriting Record With 6th Win In Row

Taylor Swift has broken yet another world record, becoming the only artist to have ever won the the Nashville Songwriters Association International's songwriter/artist of the year award, winning for a sixth year. Not only is Swift the only artist to have won six times, at 23, she is also the youngest to have ever won the award, according to the Associated Press.

Taylor Swift Is One Of The Most Successful Artists In The World.

The prestigious accolade is only given to those who have made a top 30 hit single. Swift has in fact released a whopping 14 top 30 songs in the period between July 2012 and June 2013. Her latest album Red was release in October 2012 which gave some of Swift's biggest singles to date with 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,' '22' and 'I Knew You Were Trouble.'

Her album's success was bolstered by a huge 'Red' worldwide tour which will include a freshly announced five-date mini-residency at London's O2 Arena. This year she also broke the record for the most sell-out shows at Los Angeles' Staples Center - 11 to be precise - beating Madonna, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake.

Swift's mega sixth win has beaten the previous records of five-time winners Vince Gill and Alan Jackson. Her six awards will soon be on display at the Taylor Swift Education Center, which opens Saturday at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville after the singer donated $4 million to the project. Swift will also apparently be involved in an advisory capacity, helping to nurture young talent.

Since 2008, Taylor Has Shot To Stratospheric Fame.

The awards keep coming and coming for the endlessly popular performer, with seven Grammys, 12 Billboard Music awards, seven wins from the Academy of Country Music and 11 American Music awards, which have helped to total almost 200 individual awards to date since she signed to Big Machine Records in 2008. Looks like she'll have to install a few more mantle pieces to house them all!
