Taylor Swift will receive the Artist of the Decade Award at this year’s American Music Award. This prestigious award is rarely presented. In fact the only other artist to receive this award was Garth Brooks who was awarded it in 2000.
Swift has been named Artist of the Year four times. She is nominated for that award again this year. Swift already has 23 AMA Awards to her credit. She has more than any other female artist this decade.
Dick Clark Productions executive, Mark Branco, said that the organization was “thrilled to honor her as our Artist of the Decade.” He also stated the Swift’s impact on music over the past decade has been “undeniable.” The award show will be held on November 24, 2019 in Los Angeles.
