Taylor Swift won back the CMA Entertainer of the Year award in 2011, and won Grammys the following year for Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song for “Meaning”, a single off her third album. On her fourth album, Taylor Swifts motivations even went beyond being about a boyfriend, with Mean, a single that she wrote alone, which earned her two Grammys, including one for best country song.
While Taylor Swift still focuses on the vagaries of young love, her songwriting reflects a deeper outlook on the topic, with most of her subsequent song collection adopting a more daring, pop-rock sound. Musician Taylor Swift released her first single, Tim McGraw, in 2006, her first number-one hit on the country charts.

Shortly after, Taylor Swift released a hit single, Look What You Made Me Do, and her album Reputation became the best-selling American LP of 2017.
Additionally, her next compilation albums lead single, the cheerful We are Never Ever Gonna Get Back Together, gave Swift her first number-one single on Billboards Pop Singles Chart.
The third single was also the first song by Taylor Allison Swift to win an MTV VMA for Best Female Video, which caused a bit of a controversy when Kanye West interrupted his acceptance speech to say that Beyonces Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It) was the best video of all time, and should have won it over Taylor. The fifth and final single, Should Have Said No, was announced and performed at the 2008 Academy of Country Music Awards, where the performance was received very well by Taylor Alison Swift fans, the performance was made an official video for the fifth and final single. Her first single was also featured on her self-titled debut album, released in October 2006, which went on to sell over five million copies.
The self-titled album and the lead single from Fearless were both instant successes, spending eight months on Billboards Country Singles Chart. The first release of this attempt at capturing Swifts catalogue was the re-recording of her second album Fearless, Now Fearless (Taylors Version) of her second album Fearless. Record executive Scott Borchetta signed Taylor Swift to his newly formed label, Big Machine, and her first single, Tim McGraw (inspired by, and heavily referenced a Swift favorite country singers song) Swifts Favorite Country Artist, was released in the summer of 2006.
Scott Borchetta said that while his peers in the recording industry were initially uneasy about signing the 16-year-old singer-songwriter, Swift was tapping a previously untapped market–teenage girls who were listening to country music. With “Our Song,” Swift became the youngest person to ever single-handedly write and sing the #1 song on Billboards Hot Country Songs chart. With the debuts of both of her sister albums, Swift became the first artist to debut atop both the singles and albums charts at the same time, twice.

While Taylor Swift rarely names the subjects of her songs, she leaves clues through coded messages in album liner notes, leading to media frenzy whenever she releases new music – a practice she is likely to continue on Nov. 10, when she releases her sixth studio album, Reputation.
