There’s only one of her, yes, talking about Taylor Swift. I promise you’ll never find another like her. Taylor Swift, a talented singer and songwriter, known for the songs like a love story(2010), Blank Space(2014), etc., has just received an honorary doctorate from New York University.
Taylor Alison Swift was born in West Reading, Pennsylvania, on December 13, 1989. She moved to Nashville, Tennessee, at the age of 14 to pursue her career in music, where she began working with Music Row songwriters such as Troy Verges, Brett Beavers, Brett James, and Mac McAnally, and the Warren brothers.
The singer had earlier joked about getting a doctorate just because Ed Sheeran has one! However, now that she’s received the doctorate, the dream of becoming Dr Taylor Swift is more accurate now.
Beginning of her career
Swift began the advancement towards the journey of becoming the spectacular singer she is today at the very young age of 15. Swift released her first single at the age of 16, “Tim McGraw”, aired by Big Machine Records on June 19, 2006.
The track kept its place in the Top 100 for 20 weeks, reaching its peak at number 40. On October 14, 2007, Swift released her first EP, Sounds of the Season: The Taylor Swift Holiday Collection, which peaked at the top position on Top Holiday Albums. She released her Song Love Story on her album Fearless, which spent 36 weeks on Billboard Top 100, peaking at the fourth position.
The Song made it Song of the year on November 10, 2008, at BMI’s 57th Country Awards. It has never been a normal path for her, ways that most people at the age of 15 structure their life dreaming of the perfect college, but she never had the chance for the same. She never got to be a child. This was the chance for her to fulfil her dreams.
