Taylor Swift is belle of the Nashville Symphony Ball

Country star Taylor Swift was the belle of the ball on Saturday (10Dec11) as she collected a special honor at the Nashville Symphony Ball in Tennessee.

The singer was feted with the Schermerhorn Symphony Center's Harmony Award for "exemplifying the unique harmony between the many worlds of music that exist in Nashville," and for her significant contributions to the "development and appreciation of musical culture".

The accolade is the latest addition to Swift's trophy cabinet - earlier this month (Nov11), she was named Billboard magazine's 2011 Woman of the Year and she recently collected the Artist of the Year and Entertainer of the Year honors at the American Music Awards and Country Music Association Awards, respectively.
