Taylor Swift’s greatest musical influence is Shania Twain. Her other influences include her grandmother and LeAnn Rimes. Although, her grandmother was a professional opera singer, Taylor’s taste always ran more toward country and she developed a love for Pasty Cline and Dolly Parton at an early age. She also credits the Dixie Chicks and Shania Twain for demonstrating how much impact can be made by “stretching boundaries”
At age 11, Taylor made her first trip to Nashville, TN hoping to obtain a record deal by distributing a demo tape of her singing with karaoke songs. She gave a copy to every label on Music Row. Taylor faced rejection, not just from record labels, but also from her peers. After Taylor returned to Pennsylvania, she was asked to sing at the United States Open tennis tournament; her rendition of the National Anthem received a lot of attention.
Taylor started writing songs and playing 12-string guitar when she was 12. She began to regularly visit Nashville and wrote songs with local songwriters. By the time she was 18, her family decided to move to an outlying Florida suburb. When Swift was 15, she rejected a development deal with RCA Records because the company refused to allow her to record her own songs. Taylor then performed at Nashville’s songwritiers’ venue, The Bluebird Cafe, catching attention of Scot Borchetta who signed her to his newly-formed record label, Big Machine Records. She also became the youngest staff songwriter ever hired by the Song/ATV Tree publishing house.
