Taylor Swift has a new award to add to her collection - the country music superstar has been crowned Woman Of The Year by US magazine Billboard.
The 21-year-old multiplatinum singer-songwriter is the youngest person to receive the award, which has previously gone to Beyonce, Reba McEntire and Fergie.
She will be honoured at the 2011 Billboard Women In Music event in New York on December 2.
Her latest album, Speak Now, has sold over 3.6 million copies since its release last autumn, and she's sold the most albums of any artist over the past year.
It's the latest honour for Taylor, who became the youngest person to win the Grammy for best album for Fearless in 2010. She has also won several ACM, CMA and AMA awards.
The star is currently on a national tour in the US.
