In 2004, Swift's family left their Christmas-tree farm and headed to Hendersonville, Tennessee in an attempt to further her music career.It seemed like the move had paid off when Swift landed a contract with Scott Borchetta's Big Machine Records after an eye-catching performance at The Bluebird Café in Nashville.At a young age, Swift fell in love with country music and grew up listening to artists like Le Ann Rimes and Shania Twain, whose songs made her want to "run around the block four times and daydream about everything." And while other 9-year-olds were spending their time watching cartoons, Swift was watching television specials and biographies about country music royalty.
Swift was very hands-on with her page in the early days of her career and wrote her own bio, blog posts and even responded to fans which resulted in a more dedicated fan base.She would walk away from that deal just one year later because she didn't want to be at a place that "kind of wanted me maybe." The short-lived relationship was also due in part to the fact that the label wasn't interested in having Swift record her original songs for a debut album.Unfortunately for them, RCA found themselves on Swift's list of ex-lovers, err – labels.The song stayed on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for 20 weeks and peaked a No. Swift's debut, eponymous album Taylor Swift, was released in October 2006 when she was just 16 years old.The aspiring country singer had a hand in all of the songs on the album — either writing them herself or co-writing them with her writing partner at the time, Liz Rose.
Taylor Swift sold 39,000 copies in its first week and although that pales in comparison to the number of albums Swift moves in the first week now, it wasn't too shabby for the new kid on the block.
