Unlike other musicians, Taylor Swift began her music career much earlier in life. In fact, according to Biography, she was already singing at various local events at age 10. By 11, Swift sang “The Star-Spangled Banner” during a Philadelphia 76ers game.
Swift would go on to establish herself as a renowned musician at the early age of 16. In fact, around this time, the world was already aware of some of her hits– “You Belong With Me” and “Love Story.” With recognition also came several awards. To date, Swift has received 32 Grammy nominations and 10 Grammy Wins. According to the Grammy Awards, she also made Grammy history by being “one of only two female solo artists, along with Adele, to win Album Of The Year twice for her solo recordings. She won the award for 2010 for Fearless and again for 2015 for 1989.”
