Taylor, Alan Take NSAI Honor

Taylor Swift and Alan Jackson were honored as Songwriter/Artist of the Year by the Nashville Songwriters Association International at the 38th Annual Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame dinner and awards event, Oct. 14.

Taylor, 17, is the youngest artist to receive this prestigious award, which is voted on by professional songwriter members of the NSAI. She is the first solo female artist in country history to write or co-write every song on a platinum-selling debut album. Taylor’s self-titled debut CD has sold more than two million copies. “I am just freaking out,” says Taylor of her surprise win. ”And the fact that this award is voted on by my songwriting peers . . . I don’t even know how to explain how honored I feel.”
