It was another banner year on the road for Taylor Swift, as her Red Tour was one of the best-selling and most talked about treks of 2013.

At the 2013 Billboard Touring Awards, the singer’s most recent tour nabbed the honor for Best Package, which featured Ed Sheeran from beginning to end, along with appearances throughout by country acts such as Joel Crouse, Florida Georgia Line, Brett Eldredge and Casey James.

The awards were handed out late last week (Nov. 14) in NYC. The Billboard Touring Awards honor the top artists in the concert industry, along with the top venues and professionals working in the field. The awards are based on the Billboard Boxscore Chart and box office performance for the period of Oct. 1, 2012 through Sept. 30, 2013.

The Red Tour was full of highlights, including Swift’s four-night stint at the Staples Center in L.A., which set a record for recurring sell-outs by an artist at the venue. The run also featured plenty of guest appearances (like Jennifer Lopez, among many others) and continued to cement Swift’s place as one of the premier touring acts and concert draws.

The international legs of the Red Tour continue into 2014. Swift will be in Australia and New Zealand to close out her 2013 tour itinerary, and then will head to Europe. She has five shows scheduled for London in February, continuing the Red Tour’s global domination.
