Taylor Swift earned another title for herself as she is set to receive the “Artist of the Decade” award at the 2019 American Music Awards on November 24 at 8 p.m. EST live on ABC.
The pop/country singer-songwriter has won the most number of AMAs this decade and the most wins for a female artist with 23 awards under her name. Aside from this distinction, she’s also nominated in five other categories, namely: artist of the year, favorite music video, favorite female artist – pop/rock, favorite album – pop/rock and favorite artist – adult contemporary. Given the chance she will succeed in at least two categories, she will beat Michael Jackson’s record of 24 AMAs.
Dick Clark Productions’ executive VP programming and development Mark Bacco said, “Taylor’s impact on music this decade is undeniable, and her performances on the American Music Awards have been truly spectacular. We’re thrilled to honor her as our artist of the decade and can’t wait for her to blow everyone away with an epic, career-spanning performance unlike any other!”
Dick Clark Productions is the producer of American Music Awards.
Of course, Taylor’s epic performance will be part of the most anticipated highlights of the night.
Taylor Swift was born on December 13, 1989, in Reading, Pennsylvania. At an early age of 12, she has composed her first song, “Lucky You” after learning three chords on a guitar. She released her self-titled debut album in October 2006. This made her the youngest solo writer and singer of a #1 country song “Our Story”. September 2008, she released her second album, “Fearless”. Her single “Lovestory” made history as it became the second best- selling country single of all time. That same year, she earned her first AMA for best female artist – country.
The singer is known for her signature looks like red lips, blonde hair with bangs and long, toned legs. She composes songs mainly about her exes. The superstar is also a Guinness World Records 2016 holder for the most million-selling weeks on US albums charts. She was able to sustain three million-selling weeks on the Billboard 200 albums chart!
Admittedly, we never felt Taylor Swift took a break this past ten years. She is always up breaking record per record. Her indisputable talent finally landed her a royalty she deserves.
Congratulations, Taylor Swift!
