Carole King spoke with Billboard’s Tetris Kelly on the red carpet at the 2019 American Music Awards on Sunday (Nov. 24), discussing honoring artist of the decade Taylor Swift and sharing advice for younger artists.
King, who was in attendance at the event to present Taylor Swift with the artist of the decade award, tells Billboard that she is so happy to be there to honor Swift.
“I'm like the grandmother,” she jokes. “I don't mind if people know my age 'cause I own it, I love it, and I'm just fine. But I love what Taylor's doing. She is carrying it forward.”
