John Mayer to Taylor Swift: 'She's No Accident'


'You could put her in a time machine in any era and she would have a hit record,' says the rocker when introducing her to the stage of Hall of Fame Awards.

Rocker John Mayer hailed Taylor Swift's lyrical prowess at the Songwriters Hall of Fame on Thursday, June 17 by insisting her huge success is "no accident". The Grammy-winning country sensation was honored with the Hal David Straight Award, an accolade given to promising young songwriters, for her work on hit tunes like "Love Story" and "You Belong with Me".

And the 20 year old was given the ultimate praise by Mayer as he introduced Swift to the stage to present her with the award at a celebratory dinner in New York. He told the crowd, "She's no accident. You could put her in a time machine in any era and she would have a hit record. Don't confuse everybody loving one thing as hype. Sometimes that's everyone agreeing that it's fabulous."

The 2010 Songwriters Hall of Fame inductees included Jackie DeShannon, David Foster, Al McKay, Earth, Wind & Fire's Maurice White and Leonard Cohen, who received a standing ovation when he stepped onstage to accept his honor following k.d. lang's rendition of his classic Hallelujah. Other honorees on the night included Phil Collins, who was handed the prestigious Johnny Mercer Award, while Simon & Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Water" was given the Towering Song Award.
