Taylor Swift is, quite simply, a global superstar. She's an 11x Grammy-winner and a household name whose insanely catchy yet deeply personal self-penned songs transcend music genres and generations. It all started with her self-titled country-pop 2006 debut, originally released when she was just 16-years old and a freshman in high school. Writing or co-writing every song on the record, Taylor Swift topped the Country Albums Chart and has been certified five times platinum, yielding no less than five successful singles with "Tim McGraw," "Teardrops on My Guitar," "Our Song," "Picture to Burn" and "Should've Said No." Swift was still a teenager here, but she was a songwriter well beyond her years and a force to be reckoned with in the music business for sure!
