On Friday, Jan. 29, Taylor Swift [2] invited Nashville media to the “Heavy Metal at the Hard Rock” party to celebrate a long list of sales, digital and radio accolades. Media folks presented Taylor with awards including No. 1 Radio Single, No. 1 Music Video (“Mine”); Taylor’s historic 1 million debut sales week (for Speak Now); and Taylor Swift as the highest selling artist of 2010.

Taylor’s label, Big Machine Records, presented her with these awards:

  • 5X PLATINUM DIGITAL SINGLE – “LOVE STORY”
  • 5X PLATINUM SELF-TITLED ALBUM – TAYLOR SWIFT
  • TOP SELLING ARTIST OF 2010
  • No. 1 MOST PLAYED ARTIST OF 2010
  • FIRST WEEK SALES OF 1,046,740 – SPEAK NOW

“I want to thank my band, who are like my family,” said Taylor to the crowd. She then revealed how excited she was about the upcoming Asian and European legs of her world tour. “I’ve been brushing up on my Japanese, Korean, Italian, Spanish, German and French, for talking to the crowd in between songs. I’m really excited about it! Then we come back and we go on the U.S. tour. It’s gonna be a really busy year, but I am more than excited for that.”

Taylor also thanked the industry mover and shakers who showed up to celebrate with her. “I love this town and I love this beautiful industry — and I love that you showed up for us tonight.Thank you! Thank you. I just love you and I’m having so much fun. Thank you for being the reason that I get to.”

Later that evening Taylor posted these 2 tweets on her Twitter page:  “We all got dressed up and went to a party tonight where lots of wonderful people gave me and my producer Nathan shiny plaques-We high fived.” And then, “To anyone who welcomed Speak Now into your life, you’re the reason we got to celebrate tonight. Thankyouthankyouthankyouuuu.”
