A small-town girl, Taylor Swift was born on December 13, 1989 in Reading, Pennsylvania, but the beautiful singer wants to go far out into the much wider world at an early age. Her ticket to that is said to be music. As a little girl, the sweet curly-haired girl toured various karaoke competitions to draw others' attention to her talent. And Taylor Swift undoubtedly has just such a talent - she was already writing her own songs at the age of eleven. And it is precisely this devotion to music that brings the young Taylor her first discovery: the record giant Sony seizes when it has her lyrics on the table and hires the country girl as its youngest songwriter.
But Taylor Swift wants and needs to be on stage. Just sitting on her four letters and letting others take the credit with her songs is not her thing. So it comes as a surprise that she is discovered once again during one of her intimate club performances. This time, the result is her first album: Taylor Swift (2006) marked the debut of the country singer with the poppy touch, and she received a lot of positive feedback from fans and critics.
In 2008, she followed up with Fearless, which won four Grammys - a new star in the country music sky was born. In 2009, Taylor Swift was to receive the "MTV Video Music Award for Best Female Video," but her acceptance speech was interrupted by rapper Kanye West, who felt that Beyoncé deserved the award more. This moment was the birth of numerous Internet memes - the media attention around Taylor increased. Some call this evening Taylor's entry into the world of "mainstream stars", after she was previously more at home in country niche.
In keeping with her image as a well-behaved U.S. girl, Taylor's first acting ambitions also turned out to be a success: Alongside teen idol Miley Cyrus, she got to play no one less than herself in Hannah Montana - The Movie (2009). In 2010, she is part of the "Who's Who" ensemble of the hit movie Valentine's Day (with Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel and Bradley Cooper, among others) and is praised by the "Los Angeles Times" for her comedic potential.
Musically, the ambitious artist continued with her third album, Speak Now (2010), which earned her several entries in the Guinness Book of Records because it sold so well.
With her fourth album, Red (2012), the singer strikes slightly different notes than before. Taylor's new sound is rockier, poppier and less of the country genre. The singer-songwriter's image is also slowly changing: the good country girl is becoming more self-confident. The new direction she is taking seems to be paying off: Red also becomes a success and brings Taylor numerous awards. In her fifth album, 1989 (2014), Taylor Swift continues her transformation from America's Sweetheart to pop star: 1989 represents her first official pop album. The talented artist is also breaking new ground in terms of marketing the album. As part of the "1989 Secret Sessions," Taylor invites fans to exclusive performances of the album.
Since June 2020, Swift has released four works, including her eighth and ninth studio albums, Folklore and Immers, as well as re-recordings of her albums, Fearless and Red. Each of the re-recorded albums featured re-recorded versions of the album's original tracks, as well as re-recordings of previously unreleased tracks recorded at the time. Midnight will be the fifth project Swift has released over the course of two years, and since she hasn't toured since 2017, it's safe to say that the setlist for the Midnight Tour will be extensive. Especially because her planned festival series for her seventh album, Loverwas canceled due to COVID.
