Taylor Swift has been named Billboard Woman of the Year for 2014.

It’s the second time she’s been given the title.

The singer will be honored at Billboard’s 9th annual Women in Music Awards event on December 12.

The publication announced the news on Friday, saying, “As one of the most influential artists of her generation, Taylor Swift has seen incredible success on the Billboard charts. Over the course of her career, she’s charted 60 entries on the Billboard Hot 100 — the most of any female artist since her debut in 2006.”

“We are tremendously excited to be honoring her as the 2014 Billboard Woman of the Year for the second time,” notes Billboard.

Swift previously took the title in 2011, making her the first two-time recipient.

Billboard describes The Woman of the Year as an artist who “has shaped and inspired the music industry with her success, leadership and innovation over the past twelve months.”

Pink received the honor in 2013.
