On Sunday night, Taylor Swift was officially crowned with one of the most prestigious nods given at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards: Woman of the Year. Following a strong introduction by Kris Kristofferson — who called her “one of the most successful artists in country music” — Swift got a multi-minute reel recapping all of the heights she’s reached in her relatively short career.

The ‘Ours’ singer got the good news of the award during an event last fall, but given her success, it was only fair that she get some televised recognition. For starters, Swift is the only woman in music history with three No. 1 albums in a row. She has six Grammys on her shelf and was the youngest winner in history to grab Album of the Year. And, she writes all of her own songs — and has since she was 12-years-old.

Now just 22, Swift may be a worldwide phenomenon, but she’s still just a humble young girl at heart, something she outwardly admits. “I’m so humbled and honored by this,” she told the crowd at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards when she got a chance to take the mic.

Though it’s been just six years or so since she saw her first song hit the charts, Swift’s career has been full of huge achievements. Sporting a red dress and shaking her head in disbelief, Swift gave a little tribute of her own, thanking Billboard, her fans and those who took time to present her the award.

Swift is expected to release a new album — the follow-up to 2010′s ‘Speak Now’ — later this year.
