Congrats are in order for the lovely and talented Taylor Swift once again. The ‘You Belong With Me’ singer needs to clear some space on her mantle, which must be loaded with Grammys, American Music Awards and CMAs, as she has been announced as the recipient of the 2011 Harmony Award. Swift will receive the award at the 27th annual Symphony Ball, which will be held on Saturday, December 10, at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center.

That’s just three days before Swift’s 22nd birthday, so what a way to celebrate!

So what is the Harmony Award? Each year, the Nashville Symphony presents the Harmony Award to an individual who exemplifies the harmonious spirit of Nashville’s thriving musical community. That description certainly fits Swift to a T, as she is doing her best to push country music to the forefront of pop culture with her efforts and her songs.

“We are proud to call our home Music City, and Taylor Swift is the perfect person to receive this award, because she has contributed so tremendously to promoting this amazing community of which we are all a part,” says Nashville Symphony CEO and President Alan Valentine. “From classical to country to pop, a wide variety of genres of music thrive in Nashville, and Swift embodies the all-encompassing spirit that makes our city such a uniquely special place.”

Swift has lived in Nashville since she was just 14-years-old and recently purchased a historic home in the area for her family.
