Taylor Swift (born 13.12.1989) Taylor Swift is an American Country-turned-Pop artist, who has earned seven Grammy Awards, twelve Billboard awards, eleven Country Music Association Awards and seven Academy of Country Music Awards as of January 2015.
Net Worth: According to Celebrity Net Worth in 2015, Taylor Swift has a net worth of 280 million USD.
Childhood: Taylor Swift was born in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania to Andrea and Scott Kingsley Swift. Swift began writing her own music at around the age of ten. She went on to perform some of these songs live at local karaoke contests, festivals and fairs, before compiling her own demo tape when she was eleven. Swift travelled to Nashville and began handing out the demo tape to receptionists on Nashville's Music Row, and despite many rejections, she was later chosen to sing the national anthem at the US Open tennis tournament. With the sudden growth of her potential career, the Swift family moved to Nashville entirely. Swift gave a performance at the Bluebird Café, which was seen by Scott Borchetta of Big Machine Records. He promptly signed Swift to the label.
Career: Taylor Swift released her debut single, 'Tim McGraw', on 19th June 2006 at the age of 16. The film reached the 40th spot on Billboard's Hottest 100, and the 6th spot on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart. Later in the same year, Taylor Swift released her self-titled debut studio album, which was released on 24th October 2006. The album received glowing reviews, and shot to the top of the Billboard Country Albums charts, as well as coming in at number five on Billboard's 200 list. The film went on to become double Platinum in the UK and 6x Platinum in the US. On 14th October 2007, Swift released 'Sounds of the Season: The Taylor Swift Holiday Collection'. The EP received moderate results and topped the US Holiday Albums Charts, as well as reaching the 20th Spot on Billboard's 200 list.
It was swiftly followed by a second EP, 'Beautiful Eyes', which was released on 15th July 2008. The EP topped the US Country Albums charts, as well as reaching the ninth spot on Billboard's 200 list. The EP was still on Billboard's 200 (admittedly at number 192) by the end of the year - almost six months later. On 11th November 2008, Taylor Swift released her second studio album, 'Fearless', which received glowing reviews and became her first chart topping album. As well as topping the Billboard 200 list in 2009, it was still in seventh position in 2010, and was still in the charts at number 88 in 2011, and was still in the charts at 126th position in 2012. This helped the album become 6x Platinum in the US and Australia, as well as being certified 9x Platinum in the Philippines. 'Fearless' was still in the Billboard charts when Taylor Swift released her third studio album, 'Speak Now'. The album was released on 25th October 2010. Again, the album received glowing reviews and topped 7 main albums charts, including Billboard's 200 and the US Country Music charts.
The following year on 21st November 2011, Taylor Swift released her first live album from her world tour. 'Speak Now World Tour - Live' received moderate reviews, yet did not see as much success as the previous album. It still, however, reached the 11th spot on Billboard's 200 List. On 22nd October 2012, Taylor Swift released 'Red', her fourth studio album. It received strong reviews, and reached the top spot of ten major world album charts. It also became Swift's third album to remain at the top spot on Billboard's 200 list for six weeks, making Swift the first artist to achieve that in 43 years since The Beatles. Swift released her fifth studio album, '1989', on 27th October 2014. The album received strong reviews again and received very similar success and became the bestselling album in the US of 2014.
