When a computer repairman taught a ten-year-old Taylor Swift three chords on the guitar, little did he know he was launching the career of one country music’s biggest future stars. At just 20-years-old, Taylor Swift has risen to the very top of the music industry. Few performers in any genre of popular music enjoy a level of fanfare equal to the “Love Story” singer. Not only a commercial success, Swift also has earned respecting for penning the majority of all her songs. The guitar-slinging Cinderella’s songwriting prowess was honored earlier this month, when she took home the BMI Country Songwriter of the Year Award.
You don’t need a crystal ball to predict that Swift will be seling a lot of Taylor Swift tickets in the coming year. In support of her already platinum studio album Speak Now, Taylor’s 2011 World Tour is destined to be a worldwide box office smash. Taylor and her band has booked 87 shows for next year from Nashville to Hong Kong. Swift’s global trek will begin aboard the Royal Caribbean cruise ship, the Allure of the Seas. Docked in the port of Cozumel, Mexico, Taylor will put on a memorable concert for her fellow shipmates this February. With tour legs scheduled for Europe, Asia, and North America, Taylor Swift will be one busy country music star in 2011!
