Taylor Swift has been a household name since she was sixteen. She has been dominating country music, pop, and even indie music. Taylor has released 14 albums, counting four Taylor’s Version rereleases.
From a young country star to the star of the NFL, Taylor has stolen our hearts repeatedly and continues to be one of the most significant forces in music and culture. With one of the most important events in music coming up, the Grammy Awards, on February 4, 2024, it’s a great time to think about her wins over the years and the nominations she’s up for this year.
With 52 total nominations over her career, she enters this year's award show with six chances to win. Best Pop Vocal Album and Album of the Year are up for grabs for her for her album Midnights. The album includes hits like "Lavender Haze," "Karma," and the hit "Anti-Hero."
How many Grammys does Taylor Swift have?
"Anti-Hero" has three chances of bringing home the award with its nomination for Song of the Year, Best Pop Solo Performance, and Record of the Year. "Lavender Haze" also gets nominated in the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance category.
These six nominations are up against artists like SZA, Olivia Rodrigo, Victoria Monet, Billie Eilish, Miley Cyrus, boygenius, Jon Batiste, Lana Del Rey, Janelle Monae, Dua Lipa, Doja Cat, Kelly Clarkson, and Ed Sheeran. It's a tough competition, but it's the Grammy's. One of the biggest nights in music can't be a cakewalk.
With every win, Taylor puts herself one step closer and ranks higher on that all-time win list for the Grammys. To go through the list of wins, we’ll have to send it back to 2010. That year, Taylor pulled off four wins out of the eight categories in which she was nominated. The album Fearless, my favorite, is full of great songs. Naturally, it won Best Country Album and Album of the Year.
The song “White Horse” from that album won Best Female Country Vocal Performance and Best Country Song. 2010 would be the biggest haul, but she did bring home two more awards just two years later. Nominated for three different awards, the song “Mean” won both nominations, while the album from which it came, Speak Now, was not a winner.
Nominated for three in 2013, only one was the winner, “Safe & Sound” for Best Song Written for Visual Media from the movie The Hunger Games. She missed Best Country Duo/Group Performance and Record of the Year.
Taylor pulled off three wins in 2016 and was nominated seven times. She won Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album for her release, 1989. The song “Bad Blood” from that album would win Best Music Video.
The next win would come five years later in 2021, when Taylor would be nominated six times. She would bring home a win for Folklore in the category of Album of the Year.
With four nominations in 2023, there was one win. “All Too Well: The Short Film” won Best Music Video. Congratulations to Taylor for all her wins over the years. How many will she bring home this year?
