Raised in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, Swift moved toNashville, Tennessee at the age of fourteen to pursue a career in country music. She signed to the independent label Big Machine Recordsand became the youngest songwriter ever hired by the Sony/ATV Music publishing house. The release of Swift's eponymous debut albumin 2006 established her as a country music star. "Our Song", her third single, made her the youngest person to single-handedly write and perform a number one song on the country chart.
