As noted in a post at Billboard.com on Friday, December 2, 2011, Taylor Swift was awarded the Billboard’s Woman of the Year during its Women in Music event at Capitale in New York held that day.

According to Billboard, the annual award celebrates the achievements of a trailblazing female recording artist during the past 12 months and acknowledges her overall success and leadership in the music business.

“Growing up in this position, making music, writing songs and having everyone hear what I’m going through since I was about 16 years old; I wouldn’t have had it any other way.” Swift told Billboard in an interview after she received the award.

“On a scale of being a girl or teenager or woman, I never tried to be the one to label myself which of those three I was.” She added, citing Faith Hill, Reese Witherspoon, and Shawn Colvin as among the women she considers as role models.

As reported earlier, Taylor Swift recently won her second Artist of the Year award and her fourth straight win of the Favorite Country Female Artist award during the American Music Awards (AMA 2011).

In addition, her 2010 album “Speak Now” was noted to have had debut-week sales of 1 million units and has sold over 3.7 million copies, with a successful worldwide concert tour last year including US, Asia, and in Europe.
