Joe Alwyn Wins 1st Grammy for Taylor Swift Collaboration on ‘Folklore’

Joe Alwyn is now a Grammy winner after collaborating with Taylor Swift on last year’s Folklore album.

Eagle-eyed Swifties noticed that Alwyn’s name was recently added to the Grammy Awards website. The actor cowrote “Betty” and “Exile” on the July 2020 album under the pseudonym William Bowery as well as produced both songs plus “My Tears Ricochet,” “August,” “This Is Me Trying” and “Illicit Affairs.” The Boy Erased actor received the accolade as part of the team that produced the album.

Since Folklore won Album of the Year, every producer credited is listed as a winner. That means Alwyn appears first in the alphabetical list of credits, followed by Jack AntonoffAaron Dessner and Swift.

The Mary Queen of Scots actor didn’t appear on stage at the Grammys on March 14, but his girlfriend made sure to give him credit in her acceptance speech. “I want to thank all of my collaborators who are on the stage,” she said. “Joe, who is the first person I play every single song I write. … Thank you so much, the Recording Academy, we will never forget that you did this for us.”
