Youngest Woman to hit top musician list

Wait — just how old is Taylor Swift? Hard to believe, isn't it? Taylor Swift, this year's toast of the country music world, turns 20 today. It's been quite a ride for a young woman who came out with her first single, "Tim McGraw," in 2006. Her eponymous debut album opened at No. 19 on the Billboard 200, reaching No. 5 there and No. 1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums. In the last year she has taken home award after award, and just a month ago, Swift became the youngest singer to win the Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year award. Last year, she was the top-selling musician in the US, having sold four million albums. At the tender age of 19, with earnings of some $18 million, she already ranked No. 69 in Forbes' most-powerful celebrities list. In September, Swift became the first country music artist to win an MTV Video Music Award. She continues to ride the wave; in March, she'll be competing for eight Grammys. Happy birthday to Taylor Swift. Way to go!
