The 'Love Story' singer will receive the Harmony Award at the Nashville Symphony's annual gala on December 10 at the Schermerhorn Symphony Centre.
Nashville Symphony president Alan Valentine described Swift as a tremendous representative for the city's music community.
Valentine said: "We are proud to call our home Music City, and Taylor Swift is the perfect person to receive this award, because she has contributed so tremendously to promoting this amazing community of which we are all a part.
"From classical to country to pop, a wide variety of genres of music thrive in Nashville, and Swift embodies the all-encompassing spirit that makes our city such a uniquely special place."
Dolly Parton, The Judds, Carrie Underwood and Rascal Flatts have received tributes from the symphony in previous years.
Pennsylvania-born Swift and her family moved to Nashville when the singer was 14 years old so she could break into the music business.
This week, Swift notched up five Country Music Association Award nominations.
