Taylor Swift was born on December 13, 1989 in Pennsylvania. She developed an interest in music at a young age, and moved to Nashville when she was just 14 to pursue a country songwriting career. In 2005, she was discovered by Scott Borchetta, who signed Swift to a record deal, a decision that eventually led them both to become industry icons.
Swift’s self-titled debut album was released to critical acclaim in 2006, and won her some country adoration with the songs “Tim McGraw” and “Teardrops On My Guitar.” It was Swift’s next album, 2008’s “Fearless,” that truly turned her into a breakout star with such huge hits as “Love Story” and “You Belong With Me.” The singer went on to win four Grammys in 2010, becoming the youngest artist ever to receive the Album of the Year honor.
Later that year came Swift’s third album, “Speak Now,” followed by “Red” in 2012, which spawned more chart-topping songs, including “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” and “I Knew You Were Trouble.” Swift released her first full-fledged pop record, “1989,” in October 2014, and it sold more than one million copies in a single week, the first time that had occurred since 2002. The album, with the lead single, “Shake It Off,” went on to break several Billboard records before becoming the top-selling album of the year, even though it was released toward the end of 2014.
And while Swift has also dabbled in movies and has an extremely intimate relationship with her fans, it’s her love life that often gets the most attention. Romances with John Mayer, Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Harry Styles have inspired some of her intensely-personal song lyrics.
