There isn’t much that singer-songwriter Taylor Swift hasn’t accomplished over the 19 years of her professional career. At age 11, she started recording demos in Nashville, Tennessee. Then she released her first album at age 16 and went on tour with major country stars at age 17. Swift’s songs started climbing the Billboard charts, and she became the youngest-ever winner of the Album of the Year Grammy in 2010 at age 20.

Swift has written hits in nearly every genre. From country to indie folk and rock to synth pop, she’s tackled them all. It’s no wonder that in 2022, the demand for tickets to Swift’s Eras Tour was so high that it broke the ticket selling platform Ticketmaster.
