The music industry has managed to produce countless stars in its day and that trend is still going strong up to today. The music scene is filled with a new generation of stars, shaping the music landscape of today and of the immediate future. Many of today’s most popular artists are likely to fade in a few years. The music game is notoriously fickle, and it can dispose of a star just as quickly as it can produce one. From time to time however, there are artists that seem to be exceptions to that rule. These are the artists with the ability to produce hits at an almost alarming rate. These are the singers who will continue to be very popular even several years into the future. One such artist goes by the name of Taylor Swift.
Swift has ascended to a level of popularity reserved for the music industry’s best and brightest. Born in Pennsylvania, Swift would then move on to Nashville, Tennessee in pursuit of her musical ambitions. She had initially planned on a career in country music and that is the main motivation behind the move. Swift released her debut album way back in 2006 and it was the album that initially established her as a country music star. The self-titled album became very popular within country music circles and her single “Our Song” from the same album even managed to reach number one on the country charts. It was a feat made more impressive by the fact that she was also the youngest artist to accomplish it. Swift’s initial success as a country singer lent legitimacy to a potential pop crossover. She would test the mainstream waters in 2008 with the release of her album entitled “Fearless”. The album featured two of her most popular singles to date, “Love Story” and “You Belong with Me”. The two singles helped propel the album towards mainstream success, and it even became the best-selling album of 2009. As an accompaniment to her wildly successful album, Swift also went tour. The success of the album was measured not only by record selling numbers, as it also managed to gain recognition from award-giving bodies. It earned four Grammy Awards altogether, and it also served as a great springboard for more success in the future for Swift. She would follow that album with two more that also topped the sales charts. “Speak now” and “Red” tallied well over a million sales each within their first few days of being released. It was an unprecedented mark for a singer with country roots.
Swift’s ability to channel her emotions through song has been her most memorable quality. The relatable quality of her songs has endeared her to millions of listeners all over the world. Her fame has even resulted in more opportunities within the entertainment industry. She has appeared on various television shows and she has even had feature roles in movies. The sky is the limit for Swift, and there only seems to be more good fortune in store for the 23 year old artist.
