ALMOST EVERYBODY HAS HEARD TAYLOR SWIFT’S NAME OR LISTENED TO HER MUSIC. WHEN SHE RECEIVED FOUR GRAMMY’S WITH HER ‘FEARLESS’ ALBUM, SHE WAS JUST 20 YEARS OLD. YEARS LATER, SHE WON ‘ALBUM OF THE YEAR’ AT THE GRAMMY’S TWICE AND BECOME A REAL STAR. SHE ADDED 10 MORE GRAMMY AWARDS TO HER COLLECTION. NOW, HER NINTH STUDIO ALBUM ‘EVERMORE’ IS OUT. LETS TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT TAYLOR SWIFT’S STORY.

Born on December 13, 1989 in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, Taylor Alison Swift took her first step towards becoming a young country music star by moving to Nashville at the age of fourteen, becoming the youngest songwriter working with Sony / ATV Music publishing house. If we go back a little bit, we see that it is not a coincidence that Taylor Swift will be a musician. The story of Swift, named after American musician James Taylor, begins when her mother decides to give her a unisex name that will help her rise in the entertainment business. Sharing the same stage with James Taylor in 2011, Swift pleases her parents, as both are fans of the famous musician.

After watching a documentary on TV about how Faith Hill became a country singer when she was 10 years old, Taylor thought that she should go this way, and without spending much time on this thought, she learns to play the guitar from a computer technician at the age of twelve. And this inspires her to write her first song ‘Lucky You’. Let’s add that the famous singer can play four instruments, namely piano, ukulele and banjo, as well as guitar.

Swift, who released her first album bearing her name at the age of 16, took the real steps to become one of the most successful singers in the world, and the second single ‘Teardrops on My Guitar’, released from the album, rises to 13th place on the Billboard Hot 100 list. When her second album, ‘Fearless’ was released in 2008, the tracks ‘Love Story’ and ‘You Belong with Me’ were high on the charts, and ‘Fearless’ manages to be the best-selling album of 2009.

In 2010, when she was 20 years old, Swift won four Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year, and succeeded in making history as the youngest artist to win this award. Apart from the Grammy, ‘Fearless’ was also awarded at the American Music Awards, ACM and CMA, making it the most award-winning album in country music history. This is how Swift’s transformation from a small town musician to a world class country singer begins. Swift is on top of her two Grammys for her single ‘Mean’, her fourth album’s singles showcasing high-charting success around the world, and the first female singer to win three Grammys with her fifth album and two-time Album of the Year.

Over the years, Swift has become one of the best-selling music artists worldwide, with a total of over 40 million album sales and 135 million single digital downloads. The famous singer won a total of 10 Grammy, 1 Emmy, 23 Billboard Music Awards and 12 Country Music Awards and holds 6 Guinness World Records. For Taylor Swift, who turned 31 this year, we can say that she is a world famous, enriched, fashion icon and cultural leader. The ninth studio album ‘Evermore’, which is a continuation of Taylor Swift’s latest album ‘Folklore’, is the surprise of this year. The world-famous artist today expresses her feelings about her new album through her social media accounts; “I am happy to say that these recordings, which I can call my 9th studio album and sister of folklore, have been released.”
