American singer and song writer Taylor Swift has been winning hearts of her fans with her music since very young. The singer is now all set to receive the Artist of the Decade award at the upcoming American Music Awards. Dick Clark Productions announced the news and the fans of Swift are more than happy as she will be claiming the most prestigious honor.
The singer at the American Music Awards is expected to perform on some of her biggest hits that she worked on from the beginning of her career. The You Need to Calm Down singer at present holds the record of the highest number of Artist of the Year awards. The singer shares the record with the legendary singer Michael Jackson, who has claimed four Artist of the Year awards. After Taylor Swift claims this year’s award, the singer will break Jackson’s record and will become the singer with highest number of wins in the category.
However, Swift has claimed about 23 American Music Awards in different categories earlier. The fans are currently looking forward for her performance at the awards night. Swift moved to Nashville, Tennessee from Reading, Pennsylvania at the age of 14 to look for a career in music. The singer was signed with the label Big Machine Records to become the youngest artist signed by the label.
In 2006, the singer released her debut album Taylor Swift and came up with her second album in 2008 which was named Fearless. The album became the best selling in 2009 in the US and won four Grammy Awards. The singer also became the youngest to win the Album of the Year Award. In 2010, the singer released her third album Speak Now that took the number one position in the US. The single Mean from the album had won two Grammy Awards. Swift also became the youngest to feature on the Forbes Celebrity 100 that lists 100 most powerful women.
