Taylor Swift Wins Grammy for Album of the Year

Taylor SwiftThe Grammy Award for Album of the Year — the night’s biggest award — goes to … Taylor Swift! The 20-year-old country sensation trumped Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, the Black Eyed Peas and the Dave Matthews Band for the honor, which she takes home for her sophomore album, ‘Fearless.’

“Thank you so much,” Taylor exclaimed, upon becoming the youngest artist ever to win Album of the Year. “I just hope that you know how much this means to me and to Nathan [Chapman], my producer, and all these musicians you see on this stage, that we get to take this back to Nashville. Our families are freaking out in their living rooms! My dad and my little brother are freaking out in the living room. This is for my dad, who always told me I could do anything I wanted … And my mom — you’re my best friend.”

‘Fearless’ was the best-selling album of all genres in 2009, with total sales of more than five million. Among its biggest hits are ‘White Horse,’ ‘Love Story,’ ‘Fifteen’ and ‘You Belong With Me,’ which also was nominated for Song and Record of the Year.

Taylor boasts a total of four Grammy wins Sunday night. Along with Album of the Year, she also won the Grammy for Best Country Album, Best Female Country Vocal Performance and Best Country Song, for ‘White Horse.’ She was second only to Beyoncé, who took home six trophies.
