Taylor Swift grew up on a Christmas tree farm in Wyomissing, Pa., but had Nashville dreams by age 11. That year, she delivered demos to every major label on Music Row, but no one would give her a shot … until Scott Borchetta called at age 15. He signed her to his fledgling Big Machine Records label, and they released ‘Tim McGraw’ in June 2006. Success didn’t didn’t take long. Swift’s third single ‘Love Story’ was her first No. 1, and since then, every release except one has gone Platinum. She’s sold over 20 million records worldwide while becoming the most successful touring artist in country music. Her personal life, including relationships with Joe Jonas and John Mayer, has been the subject of much tabloid fodder. However, boyfriends have also inspired her best songs.
Birthday: December 13, 1989
Top Songs: 'Our Song,' 'Mean,' 'Love Story'
