Previously, Taylor won the award for her albums Fearless, in 2010, and 1989, in 2016.
Frank Sinatra, Paul Simon and Stevie Wonder are the only other artists to win the Album of the Year category three times.
During her acceptance speech, Taylor gave her longtime boyfriend Joe Alwyn a sweet, little shout-out.
She said: “Joe is the first person that I play every single song that I write, and I had the best time writing songs with you in quarantine.”
The two have co-written multiple songs together, including Exile and Betty off her Grammy-winning album Folklore.

The 31-year-old singer added, speaking directly to viewers: “You guys met us in this imaginary world that we created, and we can’t tell you how honored we are forever.
“Thank you so much and thank you to the Recording Academy. We will never forget you did this for us. Thank you so much.”
She beat out Jhené Aiko’s Chilombo, Black Pumas’ self-titled album, Coldplay’s Everyday Life, Jacob Collier’s Diesse Vol. 3, Haim’s Women in Music Pt. III, Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia and Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding for the award.

Taylor wore a beautiful spring-themed cocktail gown covered in bright flowers for music’s biggest night.
The singer finished the look with bright pink heels and wore her hair up with just her signature bangs framing her face.
For her performance, the singer switched it up with a different floral gown.
Taylor wasn’t the only one to break a record during this year’s Grammys.
Beyonce made a surprise appearance at the ceremony and accepted multiple awards, including ones for Best Rap Song, with Megan Thee Stallion, and Best R&B Performance.
With 28 total honors, she now holds the record for most Grammy wins by a female artist.
