Talk about a hitmaker!

Taylor Swift has earned top honors as the artist with the longest-charting album on Billboard's Top 200 charts, Billboard has announced.

Swift's self-titled debut, released in October 2006, now spends its 157th week on the chart, more weeks than any other album this decade. The 19-year-old takes the honor from band Nickelback.

What's more? Since surpassing the 151-week chart life of Shania Twain's Come On Over, Swift's disc also becomes the longest-charting album from a female country artist in the Nielsen SoundScan era.

To promote her current album, Fearless, Swift will host NBC's Saturday Night Live on Nov. 7, also serving as the night's music guest. Later that week, Swift will perform on the CMA Awards, where she is the youngest artist in history to be nominated for the organization's Entertainer of the Year Award.
