Taylor Swift: Who she is beyond the fame
The future star’s musical career was predestined by the family to which she was born. Her granny, Marjorie Finlay, was an opera singer. As a child, Taylor used to sing a lot and performed at numerous events in her home town. At the age of 11, she performed the American national anthem, the audience loved it, and quite soon, she realised that music was one of the best ways for her to express her thoughts and emotions.
After moving to a Nashville suburb (to be closer to the heart of country music), the future celebrity used to perform everywhere she could to attract attention to her songs. The charming girl with a lovely voice and emotional songs caught her luck: Scott Borchetta (who had recently created Big Machine Records) noticed her and saw her talent.
In 2006, Taylor Swift released her very first single titled ‘Tim McGraw.’ In a couple of months, her first album was compiled and released. It was a success from the very start. In 2007, she was named the best author and singer of the year by the International Association of Songwriters in Nashville. By the way, the upcoming star was the youngest singer ever to receive this title.
In 2008, the brilliant singer was nominated for a Grammy as the best new singer, but the award was given to Adele. However, Taylor had enough success even without the award. Her next album titled ‘Fearless’ was released the same year and immediately reached high positions in charts in the USA and Canada, and even in New Zealand and Australia. In a couple of years, Ms. Swift repeated the success when her third album ‘Speak Now’ (2010) reached the tops in the United States and Canada, and in Australia with New Zealand again.
Struggling for more and winning the hearts of the world, the young star kept on working hard. Her next release titled ‘Red’ (2012) embraced the United Kingdom, including Ireland. The fast growth of her audience was the reason why her next release, ‘1989’ (2014) was welcomed with adoration, and within a single week, more than a million copies were sold. By 2016, about 10 million copies were sold around the globe.
