Top Country News of 2008: No. 8
Taylor Watch '08
Barely a day in 2008 went by without 19-year-old superstar Taylor Swift doing something newsworthy. She writes! She sings! She dates! Among the highlights: gracing the covers of Rolling Stone and Blender, winning ACM and AMA Awards, replacing her own quadruple-platinum album at the top spot on the country album chart, graduating from high school, and releasing her sophomore CD, 'Fearless,' which sold nearly 600,000 copies in its first week out.
