I love receiving press releases. One reason is because I know I’m getting all the information right, another is because I love being able to pass on these great articles to you guys, and of course if it’s an event or something, they always send a photo or two. Here’s the press release I received recently, It’s about Taylor Swift, and it’s about her album, “Fearless,” and it shouldn’t really surprise any of us that this album is breaking all kinds of records in country music.
Fearless is the only album in history to win the all-genre Album of The Year Grammy, plus Country Album of the Year Awards from the Grammy, the Country Music Association, the Academy of Country Music and the American Music Awards.
Representatives from NARAS, The American Music Awards, The Country Music Association, and the Academy of Country Music all joined Big Machine Records Group President/CEO Scott Borchetta for an unprecedented group presentation honoring Taylor for her achievement.
Fearless, released in 2008, has won every album award in the country music genre, and was named all-genre Album of the Year at the 2010 Grammy Awards. Taylor, who turned 20 in December, was the youngest artist in history to win the music industry’s coveted top prize and she is also the award’s first-ever solo female country winner, and the first solo female winner in more than a decade. Taylor wrote or co-wrote every song on Fearless.
“We tend to always look forward when it comes to Taylor, but tonight it was time to stop for a moment and look back on one of the most successful music works of all time,” said Scott Borchetta of the historic evening. “The 18 months of our lives known as the ‘Fearless’ era have been history-making, euphoric and triumphant. The sales, the airplay, the accolades and the awards have all just been incredible. But, most important to me is that my friend Taylor and her collective team of family, record label, management and her road family continue to raise the bar with work ethic, achievement and enjoyment. Dreams do come true.”
