Having already been nominated for an Emmy Award, a Brit Award, and a Grammy Award, Taylor Swift has now been recognized as Billboard’s first Woman of the Decade. It’s not only because of her talent, but also because of the way she’s been able to prove herself throughout her career. Through small acts and record-breaking success, she’s shown that she’s a truly genuine and honest person.
During her early years, Taylor Swift spent her time on a Christmas tree farm with her family. At nine months old, her mother put her in the saddle. Her interest in country music grew when she auditioned in New York. She also began taking vocal lessons at the age of nine, allowing her to pursue her love for music.
When she was 14, Scott Borchetta signed Taylor Swift to his Big Machine label, making her the label’s first signing. She later performed in the musical Cats, which was based on Andrew Lloyd Webber’s stage production. She also performed in Berks Youth Theatre Academy’s production of “Grease”. She starred in the musical Bye Bye Birdie, playing Bombalurina.
She toured with BoB in the summer of 2012. She performed in the Broadway revival of “Annie” and opened for Charlie Daniels at the Strausstown amphitheater. She also sang on the soundtrack for The Hunger Games. She also appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and The View. She has received numerous awards at both the CMAs and the ACMs. She’s also received the title of ‘Entertainer of the Year’ at the American Country Music Awards.
She’s the youngest person to be nominated for a Grammy award three times. She’s also the only female solo artist to win the award for Album of the Year on three separate occasions. She’s also the only singer to have six albums sell at least 500,000 copies in one week. She’s the first artist to have a record-breaking album simultaneously debut at the top of the albums and singles charts. She’s also the youngest singer to be named ‘Female Artist of the Year’ by Billboard.
She’s made her mark on the world through her talent and her heart, as evidenced by her recent performance at the Los Angeles MTV VMAs. She’s also earned herself a place in the spotlight as an activist, calling President Trump out for his white supremacy and aiding tornado victims in Iowa and Louisiana. Besides her music, she’s also a writer. She’s contributed two songs to the soundtrack of The Hunger Games.
During her first headlining concert tour, she grossed more than $63 million. She also released her documentary, Fearless, which chronicled the making of her most recent studio album. She’s also scheduled to perform at the Nashville CMA Awards and the Sydney ARIA Awards.
Her fourth studio album will be called RED. It’s set to be released November 19th, 2021. She’s releasing a sister album, Evermore, later in the year.
She’s the only female artist to be nominated for three Grammy awards, including Album of the Year, and has won a total of seven. She’s also the youngest Woman of the Decade in Billboard’s history.
