Taylor Swift has set a record with the Nashville Songwriters Association International.

The organization announced Tuesday that it would name Swift as its songwriter/artist of the year. This is her sixth win, beating out five-time winners Vince Gill and Alan Jackson.

The award recognizes Nashville acts that have achieved Top 30 singles. Swift has released 14 Top 30 songs from July 12, 2012, through June 13. She’s also the youngest artist to win the honor.
