Taylor Swift Wins Inaugural Dick Clark Award for Excellence


After performing her newly minted No. 1 single, “Blank Space” at the 2014 American Music Awards, Taylor Swift also took home a pretty big award for the night– the inaugural Dick Clark Award for Excellence.

While accepting the award, Swift gave shout outs to her fans and thanked them for investing in music.

“What you did by going out and investing in music and albums is you are saying that you believe in the same thing that I believe in: that music is valuable and music should be consumed in albums and albums should be consumed as art and appreciated,” she said.
