Her triple-platinum self-titled debut release has scanned over 3. Taylor is the only Country female artist to have five Top 10 singles from a debut album and the only Country female vocalist this decade to reach the Top 5 on Billboard's Hot Chart. Needless to say, she's a sensation that has only just begun to show what she is capable of. Country sensation Taylor Swift, 18, chronicles her formative years' romantic highs and lows on this stellar follow-up to her triple-platinum self-titled debut. Writing and coproducing all 13 cuts, the recent high school grad from Hendersonville, Tennessee - who just split from teen hunk Joe Jonas, 19 - tells the story of her freshman year on the sweet, midtempo "Fifteen" and ruminates on a deteriorating relationship hello, Joe! Taylor Swift is just 18 years old. But for me she's done something really important for mainstream country music: she's put some feeling and soul back into country. Swift writes her own songs unusual for a country singer. And a lot of her songs are about her hopes and her experiences.
