Taylor Swift’s boyfriend Joe Alwyn is now a Grammy winner… after a retroactive writing and producing credit on her Folklore album
They’ve been in a starry relationship since 2016.
The win was for Album of the Year, for Taylor‘s 2020 hit album Folklore.

It turns out that Joe, 30, cowrote two songs on the record under the pseudonym William Bowery.
Those two tracks are Exile and Betty, which he also coproduced alongside the songs My Tears Ricochet, August, This Is Me Trying and Illicit Affairs.
Swift would go on to release her ninth studio album Evermore in December, with Alwyn helping write the tracks Champagne Problems, Coney Island and Evermore.
Evermore, due to its release date, was not a contender for the 2021 ceremony.

The Grammy win for Folklore was Alwyn’s first, as well as his very first nomination.
It was Taylor‘s 11th trophy, however, after last having won the same award for 2016‘s album 1989.
The Cardigan songstress, 31, has a whopping 41 Grammy nominations to her name.
When she accepted the Grammy in March of this year, Swift was joined on stage by Jack Antonoff, Aaron Dessner, Jonathan Low, and Laura Sisk.
Although he was not present, Taylor made sure to thank her beau during her emotional acceptance speech.
‘Joe, who 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,’ gushed the pop songstress, placing her hand over her chest.

Swift, who is notoriously tight-lipped about her relationship with Alwyn, gave some rare insight into their relationship during an interview on Apple Music last year
‘Joe and I really love sad songs. We’ve always bonded over music. We write the saddest [songs]. We just really love sad songs. What can I say? It was a surprise that we started writing together,’ she revealed to Zane Lowe.
‘But in a way, it wasn’t because we have always bonded over music and had the same musical tastes. He’s always the person who’s showing me songs by artists and then they become my favorite songs.’
In Taylor’s alum Lover, which immediately preceded Folklore, she included a darling track called London Boy – which was directly inspired by her relationship with Joe.
