When it comes to modern-day music royalty, Taylor Swift is near the top of the list. The 28-year-old singer burst onto the scene as an innocent country signer out of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, before becoming one of the fiercest pop stars in the world today. Swift has consistently topped the charts with singles from her solo albums and has earned some of the highest honors in the music industry. Throughout her career, Swift has won 10 Grammy Awards, 19 American Music Awards, a record 21 Billboard Music Awards, 12 Country Music Association Awards, 8 Academy of Country Music Awards, one Brit Award, and one Creative Arts Emmy Award.
Swift’s first album, which was self-titled, featured the single “Our Song.” That single made Swift the youngest person to single-handedly write and perform a No. 1 song on the Hot Country Songs chart. She followed that up with Fearless, which went on to become the best-selling album of 2009, winning four Grammy Awards and earning Swift the Album of the Year honor.
She continued her success with Speak Now, an album that debuted at No. 1. Her fifth album became one of the most successful, featuring No. 1 hits “Shake It Off,” “Blank Space,” and “Ba Blood.” She won three Grammys for that album.
Swift recently released her sixth album, “Look What You Made Me Do,” and is set to kick off her world tour.
Throughout the summer of 2018, you will be able to catch Swift on the “Reputation Stadium Tour” along with her good friend Camila Cabello and Charli XCX. The 51-stop tour will begin on May 8, 2018, at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, before wrapping up on November 9, 2018, at Mount Smart Stadium in Auckland, New Zealand.
