All About Taylor Swift

Obviously, I’m a fan of Taylor Swift. Look at her she’s a goddess like lady with an angelic voice. I love her very much especially all her beautiful songs. Let’s find out her early life.

Taylor's Biography:

Taylor Swift was born to Andrea (stay at home mother) and Scott Swift (stock broker) on December 13, 1989 in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania and raised on a Christmas tree farm there. She has a younger brother, Austin.

Swift began writing songs and singing at karaoke contests, festivals, and fairs around her hometown at the age of 10. She always dreamed of becoming recognized for her ability to write and sing songs. To pursue her career in country music, Swift and her family moved near Nashville, Tennessee when she was 13.

Swift's singing influences include her grandmother and LeAnn Rimes. Taylor's tastes always ran more toward country and she developed a love for Patsy Cline and Dolly Parton at an early age. She also credits the Dixie Chicks and Shania Twain for demonstrating how much impact can be made by "stretching boundaries".

On October 24, 2006, her debut self-titled album "Taylor Swift" was released via Big Machine Records. She broke through in 2006 with her hit song "Tim McGraw," recorded when she was still 16 years old and the song reached number 6 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart during the week of January 27, 2007. Soon it went double platinum. October 18, 2007, Taylor released a Christmas album "Sounds of the Season: The Taylor Swift Holiday Collection" exclusively through Target stores. Her sophomore album, entitled "Fearless" was released in the United States on November 11, 2008. The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 Album Chart. Its sales of 592,304 was the highest debut of any country artists in 2008.
