Hi, and welcome to our website all about Taylor Swift!
This is one of Taylor Swift's songs. You may know it from The Hunger Games. She is joined with The Civil Wars!
It all started when little Taylor Swift was born on December 13, 1989. She was born in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania. Although, she moved to Nashville, Tennessee, at the age of 14 to pursue a career in country music.
"Pop Star On The Rise"
With her great sense of humor she wanted to persue her dream. Taylor had finally got signed after endless months of trying to show people her amazing talent. She got signed and produced her fist successful song "Stay Stay Stay" in the album "Red".
Taylor had always been a family person since she was little. After Taylor had been signed she was really busy all the time. Even though she was busy, she made time for family. Taylor has been working on her new album "1989", but goes to see her family every now and then.

Blog Entry 1
Today I had to pack up all my things. I had to shove everything in my duffel. We are moving in a week and to be honest I am pretty scared. I will miss my friends but, my music is more important. I mean I care for my friends. Although, I may never have this opportunity again. I think the family is handling it okay. Not perfect. I noticed that a lot of my favorite biography shows, the main star had started their career in Nashville, Tennessee. It’s just that, what will happen if I never get signed. I think I have a chance but I am not going to jinx it. That’s all for now, but I will write again when I get signed. If I get signed.

I am so pumped! I was out doing an audition and someone noticed me!!! I don’t know if this will take me very far, but I’m so happy I might cry. His name is Scott Borchetta and he is very high up in the music industry. He really thinks that I have potential and I can make it really far. My mom always thought that I could make it. To be honest I didn’t think I would ever make it this far. We are going to record and maybe, just maybe make an album before i'm 30! I am paranoid because what if it doesn’t work out? What if he doesn’t like me? I will have to just try my best and do what I can.

After I got signed I became a workaholic. I am going to sing tonight at the World Series Baseball Game singing the National Anthem. I am so nauseated it’s not even funny. I think I will do ok, but not amazing. I am confident in myself and I should be. For everything that I have a accomplished. Scott calls me vibrant. I think thats good. I am so happy of what has happened to me and I can only thank my family and Scott for how I have turned out. I think I am going to go somewhere. So, does everyone else. I think I am pretty popular now and I hope that I become more popular.
Taylor Swift Summary
Taylor Swift was born on December 13, 1989 (age 25). She was raised in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, but then moved to Nashville, Tennessee, at the age of 14 to pursue her career in country music. She had honestly thought that she had no chance at all because no one had signed her and it had been what felt like ages to Taylor. Then, she found that little light in the darkness. Like if everything had gone out, but there was one light left and she found it. She found Scott Borchetta. He was a big business owner and he was mostly introduced to everyone by signing Taylor Swift. What I mean is that when people hear the name “Scott Borchetta” they know him because they think “Oh! He is the guy who signed Taylor Swift”. In 2008 Taylor was asked to sing at the World Series baseball Game, singing the national anthem. This was said to make her become more popular and it did. After much practice Taylor and Scott had finally hit something. They released one of Taylor's best albums "Red" in 2012. Then in 2013 Taylor Swift went on her first tour. She went with Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. She was becoming more of a popular pop star with every move she made in the singing and song-writing business. Taylor had made a dream come true. She had worked so hard that in 2013 she attended the Teen Choice Awards and she won an award for "Teen Breakout Artist". She then in 2014 she heard the news that her album was voted the number one album of the year. It was called "1989". Straight after that in 2014 Taylor was nominated as the entertainer of the year. She worked so hard that she got three awards in a row for how amazing and talented she is. This Christmas (2014-2015) her and her brother Austin (born March 11, 1992 (age 23) and attended the University of Notre Dame) asked their mother Andrea Finlay to go see a doctor to make sure she had no sicknesses like cancer and such. The small family expected nothing more than the doctors saying that Andrea was fine. Instead they get the horrific news the Andrea had been diagnosed with cancer. They are fighting through it, like any other family would. Although Taylor posted the news very recently. She has kept working as hard as she can and she has become many girls legacy.
This is what Taylor told her fans on Tumblr. Here is her entire post.
I’m writing to you with an update I wish I wasn’t giving you, but it’s important and I’m used to sharing important events in my life with you. Usually when things happen to me, I process them and then write music about how I feel, and you hear it much later. This is something my family and I thought you should know about now.
For Christmas this year, I asked my mom that one of her gifts to me be her going to the doctor to get screened for any health issues, just to ease some worries of mine. She agreed, and went in to get checked. There were no red flags and she felt perfectly fine, but she did it just to get me and my brother off her case about it.
The results came in, and I’m saddened to tell you that my mom has been diagnosed with cancer. I’d like to keep the details of her condition and treatment plans private, but she wanted you to know.
She wanted you to know because your parents may be too busy juggling everything they’ve got going on to go to the doctor, and maybe you reminding them to go get checked for cancer could possibly lead to an early diagnosis and an easier battle… Or peace of mind in knowing that they’re healthy and there’s nothing to worry about. She wanted you to know why she may not be at as many shows this tour. She’s got an important battle to fight.
Thank you for caring about my family so much that she would want me to share this information with you.
I hope and pray that you never get news like this.
