She is only 22 years old and in 2008 was ranked as the best selling musician of the year in the United States.
Her debut single called ‘Tim McGraw’ was released in 2006 from her selftitled debut album and was subsequently certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America and she was nominated in the fiftieth Grammy Awards for the Best New Artist.
Add to that she has been defined as the most commercially successful country pop crossover act in music history with over twenty eight million digital tracks sold and you can understand why Taylor Swift is popular on both sides of the pond.
Add to that the fact that last month it was announced that she had sold over sixteen million albums world wide and you get the idea of a great success story which started only five yeas ago.
Her name can now be added to other great country acts like Kenny Rogers, Don Williams, Glen Campbell, Shania Twain ,Lonestar and a handful of others who have broken down the boundaries of country music.
She is also the youngest ever artist in history to win the Academy of Country Music Album of the Year Award, another accolade she received in 2008.
No doubt tracks from her latest album entitled ‘Speak Now’ will be forefront in her repertoire when she arrives in Britain in March for a series of concert dates.
If you want to experience some of the best cross over contemporary country sounds then make a date with her when she appears at the following venues.
