Taylor Alison Swift was born on December 13, 1989, in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania. Her father, Scott, a stockbroker, and her mother, Andrea, raised her on a Christmas farm. Taylor Swift had a normal every day until her grandmother, an opera singer, noticed her talent and inspired her career. By the time she was ten, Swift was singing and performing around her hometown at festivals, fairs, and karaoke contests. At the age of eleven, Taylor Swift knew that she wanted to pursue a career in singing. When she was twelve years old, she learned how to play the guitar and started writing her own songs (Biography Resourse Center Online. Gale, 2008).
She is a country star sensation, being the only female artist to write and co-write every song on an album in country music history (Fabian). For this reason, alone, I believe that Taylor Swift is an amazing young female artist, who has a long life of success ahead of her.
Taylor Swift’s career finally began when she was sixteen with the release of her self-titled album in 2006, and her song “Tim McGraw” from the album immediately became a hit. The song was number fourteen on the Billboards Country Singles Chart; then her album was certified platinum in June of 2007 and was number 1 on the Billboards Country Albums Chart and sold more than 2.5 million copies.
Swift began touring with some of the biggest artists in country music, opening for Rascal Flatts in 2006 and then for George Strait, Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, and Faith Hill in 2007. By this time, she was being home schooled. Her growing singing career left little time for a traditional education or a traditional teenage life. After scoring two more hit singles with "Our Song" and "Teardrops on My Guitar" from her debut album, she began recording her second album in December of 2007 (Biography Resourse Center Online. Gale, 2008).
She has won the CMT Music Award for Breakthrough Video, for "Tim McGraw," in 2007, the Nashville Songwriters Association...
