Loved or hated, it is undeniable that this woman is one of this generation’s most successful and talented artists, being known far and wide by multitudes and having her songs played on the radio all the time. The renowned American singer and songwriter, Taylor Alison Swift, was born on December 13th, 1989, in Reading, Pennsylvania, but spent most of her childhood on a Christmas tree farm owned by her family before moving to Wyomissing.

At a very young age, she started to show interest in certain hobbies, which would lead her to horse riding, but she soon drew her attention to music at the age of 9, following the footsteps of her grandmother, who had been a professional opera singer.  By the age of ten, Swift was already performing at local events and turning into the country star she would grow up to be, and to pursue her music career, her family moved to Nashville when she was 14, having secured an artist development deal with RCA Records, but she left the label a year later because of a disagreement about the release of her album. Soon, the girl caught Scott Borchetta’s attention, a Dreamworks Records Executive who aspired to form his independent record label, Big Machine Records, and so she became one of the label’s first signings.

In 2006, she released her first single, “Tim McGraw”, which became a total success, a Top 10 hit on the country charts. In October of that same year, her debut album “Taylor Swift” was released and received very good critics; in the first week, the album had sold 39000 copies, but finally sold more than 2.5 million copies. She also won the Horizon Award from the Country Music Association (CMA) and the Academy of Country Music Award for Top New Female Vocalist in 2007. The year after that, Swift released her album “Fearless”, which debuted #1 on the Billboard 200 Album Chart and was the top-selling album of 2009. That same year she became the youngest artist, and one of only six women, who have been named Entertainer of the Year by the Country Music Association. Then her albums “Speak Now” and “Red” were released, in 2010 and 2012 respectively, and by 2012, Swift had sold over 23 million albums and 54.5 million digital tracks around the world; she had also been ranked in Forbes magazine’s as the highest paid celebrity under 30 that same year.

In 2013, the artist funded the Taylor Swift Education Center at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville. Swift was later honored with the CMA Pinnacle Award. Finally, in October of 2014, her most recent album, “1989”, was released. In February 2016, she received a Grammy Award: Grammy for Album of the Year.

So far, Swift has received 10 Grammy Awards, 8 Academy of Country Music Awards, 23 Billboard Music Awards, one Emmy, one Brit Award and 19 American Music Awards, and each of her album has sold at least four million copies in the US, having that “Taylor Swift” has sold 5.5 million copies, “Fearless”, 7 million copies; “Speak Now”, 4.5 million copies; “Red”, 4.1 million copies; and “1989”, 5.7 million copies. Nowadays, Taylor still occupies position number 1 in Forbe’s list of Highest Paid Celebrities and she possesses an estimated $170 million fortune.
