Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift born in 1989, is wise beyond her years. A true artist who draws on her own life experiences to create her songs. Taylor started out writing her own songs at the young age of 12 years old. She played guitar and wrote songs with other people from the start. She took trips to Nashville and passed out demo karaoke songs to everyone she could find. She had the drive to keep going until she made it.

At the age of 15 Taylor was turned down by a known record company but she didn't give up. She was the youngest song writer hired by Sony ATV Big Machine Records. At age 14 she was already writing her own songs. Taylor's Tim McGraw was a hit when it was released in 2006 it hit high up the charts and stayed there for many consecutive weeks. When Taylor released her self titled album Taylor Swift in October of 2006 it hit the top of the charts as well and as many expected it stayed at the top of the charts for weeks as well.

It was no big surprise that the video for Tim McGraw won an award at the 2007 CMT Music Award for Breakthrough Video of the Year Swift was a true talent force from the moment she came on the scene. In 2008 Taylor got the honor of performing with one of my favorite bands rock band Def Leppard. Her second album Fearless, was released in November of 2008 and was one of the highest debut sales of any album country artist in 2008.

Love Song became a cross over hit in both country and pop genres. Taylor had the biggest online debut of any country music artist. Taylor had 11 of the 13 songs from the Fearless album spend time on the top 100. Taylor was not only Billboard's Top Country Artist as well as Hot Country Songwriter of the year 2008 but Taylor was also one country music's best-selling artist of the year 2008.

In 2009 Taylor was not only touring for her Fearless album but also had many other accomplishments such as being a guest star on Saturday Night Live and performing on 51st Grammy Awards with Miley Cyrus. Taylor's song Love Story became the country song with the most paid for downloads. Taylor won the Album of the Year honors as a performer and producer for her album Fearless. Taylor Swift is the youngest artist in history to win the ACM Album of the Year award during the 44th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards.

In November 2009 Taylor Swift won the Country Music Association Award for Entertainer of the year making her the youngest artist ever to win it. Taylor is one of only six women to ever win the Country Music Association's highest honor. That is quite impressive if you ask me. In 2010 Taylor Swift released her album called Speak Now and she is now on tour. Taylor has sold more albums than any other artist in 2010 and 9.9 million digital tracks as well. Taylor has accomplished a lot in her young life but I have no doubt Taylor will be around and entertaining us all for m any years to come.

To me it is very refreshing to see someone so successful that doesn't take her clothing style to an embarrassing level of transparency. Now days there are so many beautiful girls that feel there is so much pressure to take their clothes off. I am happy to see Taylor has not caved in on this issue she is truly a great role model for young people in general not just girls but boys also in my opinion. When we look around and see so many who have stooped to the level of indecency Miss Cyrus and miss Spears to name a few it is rather impressive and refreshing to see Taylor keep her self respect and  self worth in tact. I feel we all judge people when they are in the spot light by how they carry themselves. I think this young lady has a lot of respect not only for herself but respect for others as well and I for one love that about her. I am always interested in what she will be singing next and after all that is what being a singer song writer is about not taking their clothes off in my humble opinion.
