Taylor Swift Inducted Into Songwriter’s Hall Of Fame
Country and Pop sensation Taylor Swift will be receiving the Hal David Starlight Award at the Songwriters Hall Of Fame Awards in New York City on June 17.
According to CMT, the Hal David Starlight Award was established “to honor gifted songwriters who are at an apex in their careers and are making a significant impact in the music industry via their original songs” and has previously been given to musicians such as Alicia Keys, Rob Thomas and John Mayer.
The 20-year old phenom wrote or co-wrote every song on her first two albums- 2006’s self-titled and 2008’s Fearless. Both albums are certified multi-platinum and Fearless snagged Album Of The Year at this year’s Grammys. It is a unique thing to see an artist write all of their own music these days.
Leonard Cohen, Johnny Mandel and Earth, Wind & Fire’s Maurice White will also be inducted this year.
Swift will truly be a gifted child amongst the other greats. What a stunning young career we are witnessing.
