On June 19, 2006, out of nowhere a young geeky-looking girl became the talk of the town with her debut single song Tim McGraw. The song burst into the charts and attracted the attention of country music listeners and soon a new country artist was born. The girl was and is: Taylor Swift.
Swift wrote the song in the freshman year of high school, about her senior boyfriend Drew Dunlap and herself. Dunlap was soon to left for college, meaning a breakup was apparent.
The song was the first lead single from her eponymous debut album. Other hit songs from the album included Teardrops On My Guitar, Picture To Burn, and Our Song.
Since her debut, Taylor has come a long way and has successfully transitioned from a country artist to a pop icon. She has sold five highly successful albums, played sold-out concerts all over the world and amassed an army of loyal fans.
