About Taylor Swift

Taylor Alison Swift (born December 13, 1989) is an American country pop artist who began her career as a teenager.

In 2008, Swift sold more albums than any other artist and made a significant impact on the global music scene, earning Gold and Platinum sales certifications in fourteen countries spanning five continents.

Swift has had singles top both the Country and Pop radio charts, and sold more albums in 2008 than any other recording artist, in any genre of music. Her sophomore release, Fearless, was voted 2009's Album of the Year by the Academy of Country Music, and reached double-platinum in just four weeks. Fearless was the year's biggest debut for any female artist, and the fourth highest debut of 2008, over all. Now rapidly approaching quadruple-platinum, Fearless has spent more weeks in the #1 position atop Billboard's Top 200 all-genre CD sales chart than any other album this year. Taylor, whose career record sales now top 7.75 million, currently holds the Billboard all-genre record for most Top 20 debuts in a calendar year. Taylor launched her first-ever headlining tour this spring, the TAYLOR SWIFT Fearless 2009 TOUR, selling out a show at Madison Square Garden in one minute, and one at Los Angeles' STAPLES center in just two minutes.

At 17, Taylor became the youngest person to single-handedly write and sing a number-one country single entirely on her own ("Our Song" spent 6 consecutive weeks at #1 atop Billboard's Country Singles Chart), and she is the first female solo artist in country music history to write or co-write every song on a platinum-selling debut CD. At 14, she signed a publishing deal with Sony/ATV Music, and in 2006 released her self-titled debut CD on Big Machine Records. Taylor Swift has surpassed quadruple-platinum (4 million sales) status and spent more than 20 weeks in the #1 position atop Billboard's Country CD Sales Chart. Taylor is consistently ranked Country's #1 artist on MySpace, and was named Country Music's Hottest Female Artist by AOL Music and Best New Artist by the editors of iTunes.

In 2009 Taylor was awarded the Academy of Country Music's Crystal Milestone Award, given for Outstanding Achievement in Country Music. Taylor was the 2nd artist in history to receive this prestigious award -- Garth Brooks received the award in 2007. Also this year, Taylor won CMT Music Awards for Video of the Year and Female Video of the Year, awards she was also honored with in 2008. Taylor was named 2008's Favorite Female Country Artist at the American Music Awards, Top New Female Vocalist by the Academy of Country Music, and won 2008 CMT Music Awards for Video of the Year and Female Video of the Year. She was named Choice Breakout Artist at the 2008 Teen Choice Awards, and was as the 2008 Superstar of Tomorrow at the 10th Annual Young Hollywood Awards, making her the first musician to ever receive this prestigious award. In 2007 she won the CMA Horizon Award, as well as the Nashville Songwriters Association International's Songwriter / Artist of the Year, and she received a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist.

In early 2009, NBC dedicated an entire hour to the primetime special "Dateline: On Tour With Taylor Swift." Taylor's numerous other television appearances include a guest-starring role on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and a performance on Saturday Night Live.

Taylor has been featured on the covers of Rolling Stone (twice), Billboard (twice), Glamour, Allure, People StyleWatch, Blender, USA Weekend, Seventeen (twice), Redbook, Self, Us Weekly, CosmoGirl, Girl's Life, Teen Vogue, Women's Health, First, Your Prom, and Southwest Airlines Spirit magazine. She was featured in a Vanity Fair spotlight, was named one of People magazine's 100 Most Beautiful People of 2008 and 2009, was Cosmopolitan magazine's Fun Fearless Female of December, 2008, was Allure's Face of December, was named a Style Star of 2008 by the editors of Seventeen, and was featured on Maxim's 2008 & 2009 Hot 100 list.
