You may have heard all the buzz about this talented, beautiful woman, Taylor Swift. She is an amazing artist that has won many awards this year and continues to produce chart topping hit songs. She has been on numerous magazine covers, television shows, and performed during music award shows. At only 20 years old she has taken over the music industry and has been a proven success not only in that industry but she can also write her own songs and act. She is a country pop artist and is accepted, admired, and appreciated by both country and pop music fans. Billboard magazine deemed her the respected title as artist of the year.
Taylor was born in 1989 and grew up in Pennsylvania. At an early age she showed an interest in writing poems and songs, performing comedy acts, and singing country music. Like a lot of other musicians, her talent may have been inherited by her grandmother who was a professional opera singer. However, instead of singing opera, she would sing country music accompanied by karaoke backgrounds. She also plays instruments such as a regular guitar and a 12 string, ukulele, and the piano.
In 2006, she released her first professional single that was played on every Internet Radio and traditional radio station. Her hit song called, “Tim McGraw,” topped the country music charts at position six. The song was written about her and her high school boyfriend, and the memories they shared together. It was a great start to her professional singing career under the recording label Big Machine Records.
After the success of her single, she released a self titled album that successfully went platinum, which means she sold more than 1,000,000 albums worldwide. The release of her second album, called “Fearless,” solidified her career as a success in the industry. This album stayed on the top of the music charts for 11 weeks, which is unheard of. “Fearless” included chart topping singles such as “White Horse” and “Love Story.”
Because of the success of the album, she was nominated for eight Grammy awards and won five American Music Awards. At the American Music Awards, she won the most coveted award as Artist of the Year.
Not only is she a great singer, but she is also an amazing actress. She has made cameos in other artists’ movies such as Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience and Hannah Montana: The Movie. In addition to having cameos in movies, she also hosted Saturday Night Live and performed some of her hit songs live on the show. She also appeared in an episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. She is taking on the big screen next year in the movie Valentine’s Day.
Taylor Swift can sing, write songs, play music instruments, and act. Is there anything that this amazing artist can’t do?
