Born in 1989, the songstress had a fairly normal childhood, spending her early years on a Christmas tree farm with her parents and younger brother.
At 14, the family moved to Nashville, Tennessee, so Swift could pursue her dreams of becoming a country musician.
Within a year, she had signed a songwriting deal with Sony/ATV Music Publishing, becoming the youngest person to ever do so.
Not long after, she had an official record deal with Big Machine Records. The rest, as they say, is history.
Swift has sold over 200 million albums as of August 2022, making her one of the bestselling musicians of all time. Her nine studio albums—”Taylor Swift,” “Fearless,” “Speak Now,” “Red,” “1989,” “Reputation,” “Lover,” “Folklore,” and “Evermore” as well as several re-recordings—span multiple genres, from country to pop.
