Hello everyone, and thanks for coming back to ClevverTV. I'm your host Dana Ward in Hollywood and we've got the Best of 2011 episode for Taylor Swift. She definitely stands out a star who was shining strong throughout the year, so let's rewind back. Early in 2011, January 5th, Taylor won Favorite Country Artist at the People's Choice Awards, right around the time that Speak Now is continuing to dominate the Billboard Top 200 albums chart at number-1. And just months later on March 30th, the musician reached 20-million in record sales. Fast forward just 4 days and her fans vote her as the ACM Entertainer of the Year, making her the 8th and youngest female to take the award in 40 years. During the month of May, TS is sure to raise more than 750-thousand dollars for tornado victims in the Southeast, thanks to ticket and merchandise sales on her Speak Now tour. May 6th marked the official debut of Taylor's music video, Mean. Then on May 24th, her video for Story of Us premiered on MTV. Mixed among various magazine covers and promo spots, Swift earned Video of the Year at the CMT for Mine on June 8 and just about 2 weeks later, the star celebrated her 8th number-1 single with Mean. Fast forward to August 7, and round of applause please, the singer grabbed an impressive 6 trophies at the Teen Choice Awards. Over the next few months, she also earned a couple Billboard awards, added a few more international stops on her tour and launched her Wonderstruck fragrance nationwide. Since there's such a strong and devoted fanbase for Taylor Swift, it's definitely notable that one of her stops at the Ellen show resulted in an emotional meet-and-greet with one of her biggest fans in October. Via Twitter, we all learned a lot of about TS's "new roomie" -- her cat named Meredith. 11/9 marked the second time that Taylor won the CMA Entertainer of the Year. This is the show where she performed "Ours" for the very first time on tv. Plus, the celeb wrapped up the year with a Harmony Award win from the local Nashville Symphony and she also became the youngest recipient for the Billboard Women of the Year Award on December 2. And since it's all about wrapping up the year, Billboard actually put out its top musicians of the year and TS got named the number-1 country artist, best country album and numero-uno country albums artist. In fact, Taylor also grabbed the 8-spot on the all-genre artist countdown along with other uber popular musicians. So as we wrap up the Best of 2011, we honor Taylor Swift for her musical -- and stylish -- contributions to the entertainment industry. Let us know your favorite TS moment of the year by posting a comment below. And be sure to subscribe to our show at youtube.com/clevvertv for updates just like this one all throughout 2012.
