Taylor Swift made history at the 2024 Grammy Awards when she took home album of the year.

However, that’s not the first time Swift has broken records — and smashed her own, for that matter.

In 2010, Swift became the youngest artist ever to receive the album of the year award with “Fearless.” Now, she’s surpassed the likes of Stevie Wonder, Frank Sinatra, and Paul Simon, to become the most-awarded album of the year winner in history.


Here’s every time Taylor Swift has broken records throughout her career.

Swift was just 17 years old when the song charted, making her the youngest artist in history to achieve the top spot on the country charts.

“Our Song” peaked at No. 16 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, becoming the third consecutive Hot 100 top-40 single from Swift’s debut album, “Taylor Swift.”



In 2009, Swift became the youngest person to ever win entertainer of the year at the Country Music Association Awards.

She was 19 at the time.

“Country music is my home,” 20-year-old Swift later told reporters in the Grammys press room, Billboard reported. “Country music is my love. But to have it organically crossover this year? It’s just been fantastic. I think the healthiest thing you can do when making music is [to] remove stereotypes from it.”


Billie Eilish later beat Swift’s record as the youngest recipient of the album of the year award. Eilish was 18 when she won the award in 2020.

When Taylor Swift took home the Grammy for album of the year for “1989” in 2016, she became the first woman to ever win the coveted award twice.

“I want to say to all the young women out there, there are going to be people along the way who are going to try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame,” Swift said in her acceptance speech, possibly addressing the controversy she had that year after Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, released a song in which he claimed he “made her famous.”

“But if you just focus on the work and you don’t let those people sidetrack you, someday, when you get where you’re going you’ll look around and you’ll know it was you and the people who love you who put you there and that will be the greatest feeling in the world. Thank you for this moment!”

Swift also won the award for best music video for “Bad Blood” and best pop vocal album for “1989.”

Swift has won the most American Music Awards in history. She holds a whopping 40 awards.
