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

The organisation announced on 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 recognises Nashville acts that have achieved Top 30 singles. Swift has released 14 Top 30 songs from 12 July 2012, through 13 June. She's also the youngest artist to win the honour.

Her six awards will be displayed at the Taylor Swift Education Centre, which opens on Saturday at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville. The 23-year-old singer donated $4m to the centre.
