Taylor Swift to be Honored as AMAs ‘Artist of the Decade’ Making Her the First Woman to Receive it!

There are many amazing artists out there who have accomplished many things in a short amount of time, but none that have been able to achieve what Taylor Swift has been able to conquer. With 10 GRAMMYs, 1 Emmy and 284 other awards, Swift is running out of space to put them! She also ties Michael Jackson for the most American Music Awards (AMAs) wins (24). A record she will undoubtedly hold by herself after the awards air later this month.

Swift is currently up for 5 more AMAs including:

  • Artist of the Year
  • Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist
  • Favorite Adult Contemporary Artist
  • Favorite Music Video “You Need to Calm Down”
  • Favorite Pop/Rock Album Lover

Swift has been confirmed to be presented with the prestigious Artist of the Decade award which has previously only been an honor to a male artist.

Via Billboard: The AMAs didn’t announce an artist of the decade for the ’00s, but at the January 2000 AMA show, Garth Brooks was announced as the artist of the decade for the just-ended ’90s. That same show included announcements of fan-voted awards for the artists of the decade for the ’50s (Elvis Presley), the ’60s (the Beatles), the ’70s (Stevie Wonder) and the ’80s (Michael Jackson).

Mark Bracco, executive vice president of programming & development at Dick Clark Productions said in a press statement.

“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!”
