The singer has made history at the Grammys with three album of the year wins
Taylor Swift has a big reputation at the Grammys.
The "End Game" singer won her very first Grammy at 20 years old, for her second album, Fearless, and she's continued to rack up many more accolades since.
Not only has she taken home some of the most prestigious awards of the night but she has also made history at the award ceremony.
Swift is the first and only woman solo artist to win the Grammy for album of the year three times for her solo recordings, including Fearless, 1989 and Folklore. And if she takes home album of the year for Midnights at the 2024 Grammy Awards, she will make history again as the first person to win album of the year four times (she is currently tied with Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder and Paul Simon for the most wins).
Over the years, Swift has been nominated for 52 Grammys and taken home 12 wins. (Yes, she is only one win away from reaching her lucky number 13!)
Ahead, look back at her biggest wins at the Grammys.
Though Swift's first Grammy nomination was in 2008 for best new artist, she didn't receive her first win until 2010 when she took home best country song for "White Horse."
During that same ceremony, Swift took home three additional wins including best country album for Fearless, best female country vocal performance for "White Horse" and album of the year for Fearless. At the time, she became the youngest person in the show's history to receive album of the year, at 20 years old.
Swift's next big Grammy wins came in 2012 following the release of her third album Speak Now. Out of the three nominations she received for songs from that album, Swift took home two awards, both for "Mean:" country song for "Mean" and country solo performance.
The following year, Swift received her first Grammy for best song written for visual media, for the song she wrote for The Hunger Games soundtrack, "Safe & Sound". That year, she was also nominated for best country duo/group performance for "Safe & Sound" alongside The Civil W -
ars and record of the year for "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" from her fourth album Red, however, she didn't win in those categories.
At the next two Grammy ceremonies, Swift received a total of seven nominations but failed to secure any wins. However, when it came to the 2016 ceremony, Swift came out swinging.
Out of her seven nominations at the award show, Swift won three, including best music video for "Bad Blood," best pop vocal album for 1989 and album of the year for 1989. With the latter award, Swift made history by becoming the first woman to win the Grammy for album of the year twice for her solo recordings.
As she accepted the honor, Swift gave an impassioned acceptance speech about fame.
"There are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame," Swift said, addressing the young women in the crowd as she accepted the honor. "But if you just focus on the work and you don't let those people sidetrack you, someday when you get where you're going, you will know it was you and the people who love you who put you there, and that will be the greatest feeling in the world."
Between 2017 and 2020, Swift nabbed six more Grammy nominations, though she didn't secure any wins until the 2021 Grammy Awards.
Out of her six nominations at the award show, Swift only took home one, but it was a huge feat. The singer was awarded album of the year for Folklore, marking her third win in the category. Not only did she make history as the first and onlywoman solo artist to win in the category three times, but she also tied with Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder and Paul Simon for the most album of the year wins.
Swift once again gave a heartfelt speech on stage as she accepted the honor, thanking those in her inner circle for inspiring her each step of the way. She also thanked her loyal fans, saying, "You guys met us in this imaginary world that we created, and we can't tell you how honored we are forever. Thank you so much and thank you to the Recording Academy. We will never forget you did this for us. Thank you so much."
