Taylor Swift is BMI’s “Country Songwriter of the Year”.
The youngest person ever to receive that honor we might add.
Swift remarked during her acceptance speech, “It’s been a really emotional week for me,” she said in reference to her friend’s funeral on Monday. “He was 21, and I used to play my songs for him first.”
Taylor also recently became the first artist since Lil Wayne to sell one million copies in the first week of her release.
