Growing up idolizing Tim McGraw, Taylor Swift developed an early love of country music. Born in December of 1989, in Pennsylvania, she joined the ranks of the greats as a teenager, winning her first CMA Horizon award in her senior year of high school. As stunning as her melodic voice is, what is even more surprising is the fact that she wrote, or co-wrote, all of the songs in her debut album. The platinum album sold more than 3 million copies and made Taylor the first solo female country singer to have had a hand in writing every song in her first CD.
Part of her fame was molded by her MySpace page from before she had her big break. Her following grew by leaps and bounds, as she connected with fans on a personal level, every day. She thanked her MySpace fans for helping her reach the top when she achieved stardom.
Fans showed their love for Taylor again when, in 2008, she released her own fashion doll. The dolls were snatched off the shelves wearing designs Taylor had herself worn, and sporting a “crystal” guitar made to look like Taylor’s. But it wasn’t Taylor’s fashion sense that made her famous. It was her singing.
One of Taylor’s most popular hits is “Love Story,” made famous by the movie, “Letters to Juliet.” Perhaps second only to that song is the hit title, “Teardrops on my Guitar.” And the song she sang at the ACM Awards, “Tim Mcgraw,” brought her closer to her fans’ hearts. After she finished singing the song to Tim McGraw and his wife, Faith Hill, she reached her hand out to her idol and told him, “Hi, I’m Taylor.” With that, she launched herself into greater popularity than before and has not looked back since.
