About the Artist

Taylor's self-titled debut album is the only country release to spend 8 consecutive weeks at #1 on Billboard's Country Albums Chart. This places her in the company of superstars Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts and the Dixie Chicks. This debut album was certified Platinum in just 32 weeks, and she is the first female solo artist in Country music history to write or co-write every song on this million-selling debut. She is currently the 3rd best-selling artist this year behind only Carrie Underwood and Tim McGraw. Her first two singles, "Tim McGraw" and "Teardrops On My Guitar," were both Top 5, the videos have been back-to-back #1 hits on CMT, GAC, Yahoo! Music and AOL Music. Her current single, "Our Song" is her fastest moving single to date and reached the Top 20 after only 4 weeks.

In addition, Taylor was recently nominated for the CMA Horizon Award and the American Music Award for Favorite Country Female. She won the fan-voted CMT Music Award for Breakthrough Video of the Year for "Tim McGraw." Her media profile has exploded in the past year with television appearances on America's Got Talent, the Academy of Country Music Awards, Good Morning America, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Fox & Friends, CMT Music Awards, Grand Ole Opry Live and the ground-breaking series GAC Short Cuts. She has also been featured in People, US Weekly, Entertainment Weekly, Blender, Los Angeles Times, USA Today, Country Weekly and Pollstar.

Taylor is a MySpace fan favorite and is the #1 Country artist with over 26 million song streams and over 442,000 'friends.' She has taken her live show to more than ONE MILLION fans in the past year, thanks to opening tour slots for Rascal Flatts, Kenny Chesney, George Strait, Brad Paisley, and Tim McGraw & Faith Hill. This summer she is playing shows in 33 states in 3 months. Taylor has also taken time from her busy schedule to be a co-spokesperson with Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen for Tennessee's "Delete Online Predators" campaign, a new statewide public education campaign designed to combat Internet crimes against children. She is also partnering with Allstate to promote safe teen driving for the holidays.

Format: Audio CD
If I had to describe Taylor Swift's self-titled debut, I would say it sounds a lot like a cross between Lila McCann and Leann Rimes. She has a very powerful voice, and exhibits a lot of range in her songs. Most of the songs on the album are very lighthearted and deal with typical high school issues - boys, falling in love, bad relationships, etc. Even though the themes are simple, the songs (all of which Taylor wrote or co-wrote) have some impressive lyrics and musical arrangement, which really gives her the ability to show off her voice. I bought the CD for "Tim McGraw," but as others have said, it is a mediocre song when compared to the rest of the album and I found myself moving it to the back of my play list to make room for new favorites such as "Picture to Burn," "May's Song," and "Our Song." Despite what you might expect from the song titles, most of the album is fast-paced and filled with catchy tunes, but still makes room for two or three "slower" songs like "Tim McGraw" and "Teardrops on my Guitar."

The album also comes with some disappointing "bonus media" in the form of the "Tim McGraw" video and Taylor's first appearance on the Grand Ole Opry singing the same song. The clips are quicktime and small resolution, and the Opry video doesn't even show her actual performance, but a few minutes of her arriving to the theater and getting ready. For anyone who's a fan of younger country female talent, I'd definitely recommend picking up "Taylor Swift."

I haven't bought an album in years. Just nothing on the radio seemed worth buying to hear over and over again. Then I hear "Teardrops On My Guitar", and I'm hooked. I investigate a little more online, and find myself liking all of her songs, not just the singles on the radio. She writes and plays all of her songs! This artist has substance. I'm totally captivated by the music videos that are feature film-quality displaying her expressive acting skills. I've never heard such purity and honesty conveyed by a human voice. Finally, an artist who really deserves my money and support! Such intelligent lyrics, and clever turns of phrase, it's poetry of the highest order. And then putting music to the lyrics with great hooks and guitar solos, that's just musical talent. The lesser known songs are just as good, if not even better than the singles! "A Place In This World", "Cold As You", "The Outside" (written when she was 12yo!), "Tied Together With A Smile", "Invisible". "Tim McGraw","Stay Beautiful" and "Mary's Song" just bring tears of joy to my eyes, they're such expressions of pure unselfish, love that they resemble benedictions in the form of songs. Even when she's angry: "Picture To Burn" and "Should've Said No", she's the voice of justice decrying bad behavior, selfishness, the lack of pure love; she's a force of nature you don't want to mess with. As other reviewers have noted, if these songs haven't made you fall in love with Taylor, just read the liner notes on the album. They'll bring more tears to your eyes. Taylor has a tendency to open up hearts that way. <3

You can tell that Taylor Swift cares about the integrity of the music, and not just making money with the Nashville machine. Her voice has a wistfulness that reminds me of Deana Carter (though not with as much range on the higher notes yet,) and the arrangements avoid overproduction. Lyrically, "Tim McGraw" isn't even one of the better songs. This is a thoroughly charming debut - with youthful fun combined with a sophistication not expected.

I first met Taylor at CMA Music Fest in June and I was instantly impressed by how sweet and down to earth she was. Soon after, I heard "Tim McGraw" on the radio for the first time and was hooked. I ran out right after work yesterday to pick up the album and only stopped listening to it long enough to sleep last night.

The songs on the album are impressive on their own, but even more so when you consider that Taylor wrote or co-wrote every single one AND she's only 16. I think I read somewhere that she wrote one of them when she was 12.

The music is honest and well produced, something that I think is rare these days in Nashville. Vocally, I think Taylor is superior to many of the top female artists out there. She is the real deal and I think she has a long and brilliant career to look forward to!

I find Taylor has a lovely voice and I like the acoustic stuff on her album a lot. I just think being a 40 something male, I may not have been the intended audience. Every song is some kind of boy/girl story as if the songs were written from pages of her diary. This being her first album and having at least two singles, she should be proud. But I felt the album could have been stronger overall. Maybe whoever packaged her was searching with this album, maybe there was pressure on her to sound like every other Pop Country dribble coming from Nashville these days. If they want Taylor to succeed give her the acoustic guitar and let her sing, take note from the songs that became singles. This girl has talent don't bury it under a bunch of cliche Nashville assembly line canned production template.

When i first heard "Tim Mcgraw" i really liked the song but wasn't enough to buy her album and become her fan but after "Teardrops On My Guitar" she really got me! i really can relate with some of her songs and that's the reason why she's making so much sucess...people can relate with her songs and she's trying with sucess be a good role model to her young fans and that makes me adimire her a lot...
She's so successful now that they have this wonderful idea and made this deluxe ediition, a class A deluxe ediition.
They puted 3 extra songs and a great compilation of videos that will make all the fans more than happy.
I give her label props because they did a great job here and made a perfect Christmas gift for all her fans, this is more than i could ask for and i'm even more fan than before, Taylor has great skills, not only singing but acting too, all her music videos are great and she's more talented and pretty than all these pop singers, that's for sure.
Highly recommend for all Taylor fans and for all the people who like Taylor and still didn't bought the album.

where to find uncensored "picture to burn"
It would likely only be found on an early pressing of the album, but I'm not sure how you could differentiate. Looking through a used CD store is a good idea. I remember the version you speak of, though--interesting that TPTB sanitized both this song and "Teardrops on My Guitar" for...

Is her 1st album better or 2nd
Carrie,
Actually I like "Fearless" her second CD. I'm by no means a country music fan in fact far from it, but I received a Zune as an early Christmas present and discovered several other Zune owners were playing the "Fearless" CD a lot. I bought it and I love it. I don't... Read More
