Taylor Swift has been named BMI's country songwriter of the year, becoming the youngest person to win the award at age 20.
The pop sensation also won country song of the year with co-writer Liz Rose for "You Belong To Me" on Tuesday night in Nashville, Tenn. She's the first songwriter to win that award three years in a row.
Bill Anderson previously was the youngest winner of songwriter of the year, taking the honor in 1960 at 23. Johnny Cash was next with a win in 1956 at 24. Earlier this year, Swift became the youngest winner of the performing rights organization's pop song of the year award.
Swift won the songwriter award based on her own recordings of "Fifteen," "White Horse," "You Belong To Me" and "Best Days Of Your Life," recorded by Kellie Pickler.
