Swift was announced as the Worldwide Artist of the Year and Artist of the Year and her name was also included on the list of the most searched people or phrases for 2013 showing up in three categories including Most Searched People, Most Searched Celebrity Break-Ups and Most Searched Concerts.

The Tennessean pointed out the many good deeds that Swift made happen in 2013. Swift made very generous donations throughout the year including a $4 million dollar donation to the Country Music Hall of Fame and a gift of $100,000 to the Nashville Symphony to celebrate turning 24 years old for her birthday on Dec. 13, 2013.

Nashville Symphony President and CEO Alan D. Valentine said “We are enormously grateful to Taylor Swift for her generosity, which will have an immediate and hugely meaningful impact on the Nashville Symphony’s mission of making great music and music education accessible to everyone in the Middle Tennessee community.”

Swift discussed Nashville and what the city means to her by saying "I would not be the same kind of person without Nashville." Swift continued by adding "It has shaped me into who I am. I think everybody feels that. We don't have an ocean or mountains. People come here because of the feeling they get. It pulls you in and turns you into who you're going to be."
