Born and raised in Pennsylvania, Taylor Swift and her family — parents Scott and Andrea, and brother Austin — moved to Nashville, Tenn., when Swift was 14 years old. She signed a publishing deal with Sony/ATV shortly after their arrival, becoming the youngest songwriter ever hired by the company; the budding songstress also signed an artist development deal with RCA Records, before signing with Big Machine. After releasing four multi-platinum country albums, three of which went to No. 1, Swift moved to pop music with the 2014 release of ‘1989.’ Swift, who has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, has won the Country Music Association’s Pinnacle Award, the American Music Awards’ Dick Clark Award for Excellence and Billboard’s Woman of the Year Award (twice), among many others.
Birthday: December 13, 1989
Did You Know ...: "You Belong With Me" was inspired by a conversation Swift overheard between a friend and his girlfriend.
Taylor Swift may be focused on pop music right now, but that doesn't mean that Nashville has forgotten about her. In fact, a show honoring Swift's newest album, 1989, is scheduled to take place in Music City next month.
Taylor Swift first purely pop album, 1989, has continued to earn accolades a full year after its release. The record is only the fifth project ever to spend its entire first year in the all-genre Billboard 200 Top 10.
