Taylor Swift and Friend

Taylor Swift is the next big thing in country music. She hails from Pennsylvania and has a younger brother named Austin.

Personally, she's been romantically linked to Joe Jonas and is a good pal of Kellie Pickler. She actually taught herself to play guitar.

Yes, unlike some (okay, most) music stars of today, Taylor Swift is actually impressive!

With her first number-one hit "Our Song," at age 18 years and 9 days, Swift became the fifth teenaged female singer to top the Billboard magazine Hot Country Songs chart. Aside from singing talent, as you can tell, she's a major looker. In fact, Swift was ranked #57 on the Maxim magazine Hot 100 of 2008 list.

At almost six feet tall and with curly, lone blonde hair, Taylor Swift might have a modeling career ahead of her. For now, though, she's content to be dominating the country charts and making a major name for herself in the music industry.

Taylor Swift Quotes
