With 42 Grammy nominations to her credit, this award struck a special chord for the singer.
The talented songwriter expressed her joy through an Instagram story stating, “All Too Well is the song I’m most proud of, out of anything I’ve written. The fact that it’s nominated for Song of the Year at the Grammys, an award I’ve never won, that honors songwriting… it’s momentous and surreal.”
She continues with a reflection on calling her co-writer for the song, Liz Rose. “Just got off the phone with @lizrosemusic, my co writer on ATW, and reminisced about how we started writing together when I was 14. She believed in me and we are nominated together now. It’s just so cute I can’t cope.”
The original version of “All Too Well” was released on Taylor’s 2012 album, Red.
Red (Taylor’s Version), which re-released the album with Taylor’s new versions and her control housed the song in its entirety.
The accompanying short film music video has landed Taylor endless accolades, including recent MTV Video Music Awards and MTV Europe Music Awards. It is also up for a Grammy at the upcoming 2023 awards, which are set to take place on February 5th.
