Seven-time Grammy winner Taylor Swift has been named Tennessean of the Year for 2013 by Nashville’s The Tennessean
In a December 29th front page story
, the paper writes that “Swift has become a worldwide ambassador for Tennessee’s capital city, an example to millions of young (and not-so-young) people…and a financial booster to some of the city’s most important institutions.”
“She’s one of the most dynamic and popular musical performers in the world, and she’s perceived as having universal appeal across categories. She transcends genres, and that’s a great thing for the city,” said Nashville Mayor Karl Dean.
