Taylor Swift couldn’t ask for much better timing. As she heads into the last week of promotion for her new album, Speak Now, she was named Songwriter/Artist of the Year Sunday night during the Nashville Songwriters Association International’s annual songwriter awards at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel.

That list included “Need You Now,” “White Liar,” “Big Green Tractor” and Taylor’s “You Belong With Me.” Read More
