With her parents’ full support, Swift pursued a career in country music when she was 14 years old. She then released her self-titled album with the help of Scott Borchetta and the rest of the Big Machine Records team on October 24, 2006. Her songs Tim McGraw, Teardrops on My Guitar, Picture to Burn, and Should’ve Said No, were all triumphant on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs.

And just like her first, the album gained tremendous success with the singles Love Story, White Horse, You Belong with Me, Fifteen, and Fearless dominating the charts in the US and Australia.
