TAYLOR SWIFT WINS TWO GRAMMY AWARDS, WOWS WITH ANTHEMIC PERFORMANCE OF “MEAN”

Los Angleles, CA – February 13, 2012 –Taylor Swift is now a Six-Time Grammy winner, after taking home trophies from last night’s 54th Annual Grammy Awards for Best Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance for her #1 smash single “Mean, ” from her 5X Platinum Speak Now album, released on Big Machine Records. The wins come just two years after Taylor first won Grammys in both of those categories in 2010, in addition to Album of the Year and Country Album of the Year.

Written in response to a particularly zealous critic, “Mean,” is both an anthem and a chart-topping favorite that “takes real-world emotional pain and transforms it into clever art” (The New York Times). The Village Voice has lauded “Mean” as “huge and hugely compassionate, and fearless….overwhelming,” and the Associated Press dubbed it “a searing response to being treated badly.”

Accepting her Grammy awards for the song, Taylor said, “There’s really no feeling quite like writing a song about someone who’s completely mean to you and completely hates you, and then winning a Grammy for it.”

Later in the evening, Taylor brought the crowd to its feet during a performance lauded by the Los Angeles Times as one of the show’s “best moments” -- her “playful, banjo-driven” (Entertainment Weekly) take on “Mean,” earning high marks from critics and an impassioned standing ovation from the Grammy audience.

Taylor, who is on the cover of the current issue of Vogue, is the reigning Billboard Woman of the Year and the AMA Artist of the Year. She is both the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association’s Entertainer of the Year, and has career worldwide record sales in excess of 22 million albums and 50 million song downloads. Her blockbuster Speak Now World Tour concludes next month with shows in Australia and New Zealand.

Text messages and tweets by three fugitive siblings who shot at a police officer and robbed a bank reveal a dangerous mindset and a firm bond between the siblings, "We've certainly seen their mindset when... They shot at a law enforcement officer outside of Tampa Bay, Fla., and when they fired inside that bank in Valdosta, Ga. But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today. " We are concerned and feel that they are going to continue and cause problems to say the least for law enforcement." Ryan Dougherty, 21; his sister Lee Grace E.
