Taylor Swift honoured as ‘Songwriter-Artist’ of the decade

The country star-turned-pop phenomenon will be recognized as the “Songwriter-Artist of the Decade,” according to the Nashville Songwriters Association International, which made the announcement on Monday.
Swift has won 11 Grammy Awards and is the only female artist in history to have won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year three times. She writes or co-writes all of her songs.

On September 20 at Ryman Auditorium, the 5th annual Nashville Songwriter Awards presented by City National Bank will take place. Little Big Town, Luke Combs, Pat Alger, Tony Arata, Babyface, Kent Blazy, Jacob Davis, GAYLE, HARDY, Walker Hayes, Josh Jenkins, Matt Jenkins, Matt McGinn, Thomas Rhett, Matt Rogers, Jenn Schott, Nathan Spicer, and Matthew West are among the performers.

Winners of the decade awards are chosen based on their overall songwriting achievement from 2010 to 2019. The percentage of songwriting credit for a song that is associated with Nashville is calculated, and points are awarded based on how well each song performs each week in the Top 20 of the Billboard Country Airplay Chart, Billboard Pop Songs Chart, Billboard Christian Airplay Chart, or Billboard Rock Airplay Chart. The additional criteria that they must be the recording artist as well as a credited songwriter of the song for points to count is for the “Songwriter-Artist of the Decade” award.
