Transcript of Taylor Swift

The Begining Getting to know music Taylor Allison Swift was born on December 13, 1989 in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania. She lived on a Christmas Tree Farm with her family when she was young. She began to sing at ten years old. Music becoming more important then anything. Then at twelve she got a guitar, and taught herself to play. She sang at many community events, even a baseball game when she was only 11. She started to visit Nashville, as it is the country music capital of Tennessee. Her family even moved to Henderson, Tennessee in hopes of Taylor landing a recording contract. When she was 14 she landed a develpment deal with RCA Records, the biggest recored company in Nashville. They would watch her for a year and then decide whether they wanted her or not. They later on said they would watch her until she was 18, and Taylor walked away from the deal. When she preformed in the The Bluebird Café she landed a recording contract with Scott Borchetta's Big Machine Records. She released her hit single "Tim McGraw." This song made top ten on the country charts inspiring Taylor to take her career farther. Facts about Taylor Her Grandma was an opera singer.

School Taylor's Education Taylor Swift attended many different schools during her life. I will start from the very first school Taylor went to. She first went to Wyndcroft School during the early years of her life. This might of been the years were she was in Kindergarden, and possibly grade one and two. Then she transfered to West Reading Elementary Center and then later on Wyomissing Area Junior/Senior High School. Taylor got good grades in school, but always said that the minute she got home she would get back to writing her songs. The reason she was so eager to write was because of all the feelings she had to get out of her. Not only love songs, but songs about Taylor's bullies. That's right, Taylor Swift was bullied in school as well. She was bullied by the popular group of girls at her school. She said they told her she waqsnt pretty enough to be in their group or to be their friend. Taylor said she would come home miserable everyday and that's when she would write her songs. Then the same girls that bullied Taylor should up to her concert asking her to sign their CD's . Before she became famous she attended Hendersonville High School for her freshman and sophomore years. After she became famous she attended Aaron Academy, because it was a Christian school and offered Home School services. Taylor Swift graduated High School in 2008.

She recorded many songs for her first album "Taylor Swift" including "Tim McGraw" and "Tear drops on my guitar." it was released on October 24, 2006.
She then recorded many others for her album "Fearless" Including "Love Story" and "You Belong with me" It was released in late 2008. She recently released her newest album "Speak Now" It includes hits such as "Mine" and "Back to December" It was released on October 25, 2010. She also has two extra albums. One is called Sounds of the Season: The Taylor Swift Holiday Collection , and the other is called Beautiful Eyes. Taylor went from all country music (in her first album) to a mix of pop and country (in Fearless). When she released Speak Now we heard some of the old Taylor in songs like "Sparks Fly", but then we heard a whole new side of Taylor with her song "Enchanted" which is more soft and sweet, to her song "Better than Revenge" which is Taylor's music but all grown up. Now we hear a new side of her in "both of us" as she collaberated with BOB a rapper. Taylor's 10th grade school picture Taylor in high school All Songs

From her beginning to her personal life. You now know everything about her. Not only that but you know what an amazing person she is. She doesn't let fame go to her head, and she respects everyone around her. Like you saw before she shares her words of wisdom and is very smart. She also always gives. She gives to people that need because she has so much and they have so little. Now you know about Taylor Swift and what an amazing person and artist she is. Remember what TAYLOR SWIFT says "you shouldn't be scared of a lot of things, but you should be intimidated of the fear of being average, and if you're LUCKY enough to be different don't ever change". Remember "FEARLESS is getting up and fighting for what you want over and over... even though every time you try you lost. FEARLESS is having fears and doubts. FEARLESS is living in spite of the things that scare you to death. Remember "SPEAK NOW because the words you stop yourself from saying are the ones that will haunt you the longest." Remember "Life isn't about surviving the storm, it's about learning to dance in the rain." If you remember these quotes Taylor said life will be 10 times easier. I hope you now know who Taylor is and why I choose her. THANK YOU!
