It’s not the first time BMI has given an award named after an artist, but Swift is in good company, the only previous owner of that distinction was Michael Jackson back in 1990.
“Taylor Swift has transformed pop culture through her songs, artistry and indomitable spirit,” said BMI Vice President of Writer/Publisher Relations Barbara Cane. “She has had a profound impact, not only musically, but also through her personal conviction and commitment to create a standard that values and respects music for everyone. We felt it appropriate to award Taylor with an honor that is as unique and special as she is.”MORE NEWS: Healthcare Workers Gather For Solidarity Vigil Against AAPI Hate
