A Taylor Swift Biography

/ /

At the age of nine, Swift became interested in musical theater and performed in four Berks Youth Theatre Academy productions. She also traveled regularly to New York City for vocal and acting lessons.Swift later shifted her focus toward country music inspired by Shania Twain’s songs, which made her “want to just run around the block four times and daydream about everything”. She spent her weekends performing at local festivals and events. After watching a documentary about Faith Hill, Swift felt sure that she needed to go to Nashville, Tennessee, to pursue a music career. At the age of eleven, she traveled with her mother to visit Nashville record labels and submitted a demo tape of Dolly Parton and Dixie Chicks karaoke covers. However, she was rejected since “everyone in that town wanted to do what I wanted to do. So, I kept thinking to myself, I need to figure out a way to be different”.
