Taylor Swift‘s ‘Red’ hot year continues to blaze, sizzle and scorch. The singer, who will celebrate her 23rd birthday this coming Thursday (Dec. 13), has another reason to throw a party –  her smash hit single, ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ has been parked in the No. 1 slot on Billboard’s Top Country Songs chart for nine weeks, setting a new record for most weeks in the top slot by a female artist.

Swift and ‘WANEGBT’ break a record that has been held for nearly 50 years with this feat. Connie Smith held the torch for a whopping 48 years, landing at No. 1 for eight weeks with her debut single ‘Once a Day’ back in 1964.

It’s worth nothing that Buck Owens passed the nine-week mark with his 1963 smash ‘Love’s Gonna Live Here,’ which sat in the top spot for 16 weeks. So, he is the male artist with the longest hold on No. 1, while Swift shares the same accolade for her gender.

‘WANEGBT’ is a true hit for Swift in many ways, having been nominated by the Grammys for Record of the Year, as well. Congrats to Taylor Swift on yet another remarkable achievement with ‘Red.’
