Formerly a MySpace sensation, Taylor Swift has been making music for years, distributing demos throughout her teens and waiting for the right conditions to record her brand of country. An accomplished songwriter, she has balanced the genre's ticks and limitations with a pop sensibility. Her music has a high-gloss charm that avoids the aggressively sexual pop of her rivals for a sweeter, more heartfelt approach to life and love. Her debut Taylor Swift proved a hit on the country charts, MTV and radio stations throughout the U.S.
Hot new artist (69°F)
A record you've been listening to for much of the last year - and one of the oldest eligible albums in the chart - Swift's sophomore album Fearless was released in November 2008 and became an international success. It won over new fans quickly enough to become the thirteenth-hottest artist of the year at Last.fm, long before the VMA incident. That brought Swift and Kanye West to the attentiopn of the world's press not for winning an award (hymn to high-school crushes 'You Belong with Me' had won Best Video at the MTV bash) but for the interruption. On the plus side, her scrobbles rose, and Swift has remained popular since.
Swift will be embarking on an extensive tour of North America in 2010, continuing until the summer.
