The name of the popular American singer Taylor Swift is now known to almost everyone who is fond of music in one way or another. The pop and country singer-songwriter has repeatedly won the prestigious Grammy International Music Award and other world-class music awards.
The full name of the singer is Taylor Alison Swift. She is a native of West Reading, Pennsylvania. The inhabitants of this small, by American standards, city today are very proud of their popular countrywoman.
Taylor Swift was born on December 13, 1989. From an early age, the future pop star showed a special interest in music. Her first public performance can be considered the performance with the song “Star-Spangled Banner”, which took place before the start of a basketball game between two very famous basketball teams in the United States. Then Taylor Swift was only 11 years old.
But the very next year, the gifted girl seriously declared herself, picking up a guitar and starting to compose songs. Moreover, she independently wrote words and music, becoming their author in the full sense.
Taylor was 13 years old when her parents sold their farm and moved to Nashville, Tennessee. The girl spent a lot of time writing and performing her songs. The following year, when she was only 14 years old, she became the owner of a contract with the Sony ATV record company. And this contract opened the door to the world of great music for the young performer.
Taylor Swift went platinum in 2007, selling over one million copies in the United States. Her albums came out one after another, invariably gaining popularity with the public.
The singer writes songs in the country style, which in itself is very popular in the United States of America and most English-speaking countries, which today are based on descendants of immigrants from Great Britain. These songs remind listeners of the life of their ancestors, these are the motives of the first settlers, this is the style of the Wild West and the Great American Plains.
Several well-known country music festivals take place in the United States every year, with Taylor Swift as the star of the festival.
