Swift received the Songwriter/Artist of the Year at the 41st Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame induction ceremony at the Renaissance Hotel on Sunday. This is the fourth time in five years that the Nashville Songwriters Association International has honored Swift.
"Just the fact that the people in this room were all standing up for me is just overwhelming," Swift said of her standing ovation as she accepted her award. "You all are all my heroes. ... I'm going to go out there and keep trying to not mess this up."
Garth Brooks and Alan Jackson were this year's inductees and Swift even performed a cover of Jackson's "Where Were You" for the crowd.
In addition to launching her fragrance and winning awards, Swift is also spreading the gift of books. She has partnered with Scholastic, Inc to donate 6,000 books to kids in the city where she was born, Reading, Pennsylvania.
The value of the books is estimated to be $68,000 and it's hoped the collection of books, which was chosen by workers at the learning establishment, will help boost the economically-troubled library. Each of the books will have a white star on its spine and a special sticker indicating it's a Taylor-donated book. Swift's donation was welcomed by officials, who hope her involvement will motivate more young people to read.
