One of country music’s biggest stars is celebrating a birthday today. Taylor Swift turns the ripe, old age of 22. The country singer/songwriter tweeted about her special day earlier today.
A lot has happened for Swift over the last 12 months…she is currently on the cover of the music industry bible, Billboard magazine, and is the youngest music artist to be named Billboard’s Woman of the Year.
Taylor is the No. 1 country artist of 2011. According to Billboard’s year-end Top Country Artists chart, the singer dominated in every category of the country genre, including album sales, radio airplay, download sales, tour revenue, and ringtone sales.
Taylor also took top honors on Billboard’s year-end Country Albums and Country Albums Artist charts for her triple-platinum selling CD, ‘Speak Now,’ which has spawned four Top 5 singles, including her most recent No. 1, ‘Sparks Fly.’ The collection also landed at No. 2 on Billboard’s year-end, all-genre Top 200 albums chart.
