It's easy to forget now, when we're fully instated in a world of Taylor as a glitter-wearing, stadium- touring pop star, that she got her start as a bona fide country star.

Born and raised in Pennsylvania, Swift moved to Nashville, Tennessee, at the age of 14 to pursue a career in country music. She signed with the label Big Machine Records and became the youngest artist ever signed by the Sony/ATV Music publishing house.

Her 2006 self-titled debut album peaked at number five on the Billboard 200. The album's third single, "Our Song", made her the youngest person to single-handedly write and perform a number-one song on the Hot Country Songs chart. Swift's second album, Fearless, was released in 2008. Buoyed by the success of pop crossover singles "Love Story" and "You Belong with Me"The original version had a country vibe, but the jam got a bit of a makeover for its radio release, complete with electric guitars and other mainstream elements. It found major crossover success on the radio, debuting at #4 on the Billboard 100 and, along with the album's second single, "You Belong With Me," led Swift to win four Grammys.

Then came Red, and the switch-hitting. Swift, who had up until this point scraped together all of her albums with nothing more than a pencil, a notebook and her guitar, hired a team of producers and collaborators, Gary Lightbody of Snow Patrol and Ed Sheeran among them, who collectively gave her a new sound. The obvious marquee tune on Red was the wonderfully pointed and acidic. Aside from providing a breakup anthem to anyone who had heartache, it kicked off her partnership with some of pop music's biggest creators. Swift teamed up with the Swedish pop generator extraordinaire Max Martin to write the song—he of "I Kissed a Girl," "My Life Would Suck Without You" and Ariana Grande's "Problem" fame.

The result was her biggest album to date, followed by a larger-than-life stadium tour. It's almost as if she was telling country music they were never, ever getting back together. Flash-forward to 2014 and the release of 1989, otherwise known as the album that changed everything. Taylor moved to New York City, she made friends with Victoria's Secret models, she started wearing crop tops with extreme regularity, but most importantly she completely severed ties with her Nashville influences(musically speaking). There was no sign of the girl who once covered herself in flannel and big hair, and there was no sign of that once-beloved acoustic guitar.

After weeks of song teasing and media domination, Taylor Swift's 1989 was finally released. A change seemed to do her good: 1989 became the first and only album to receive a platinum certification in 2014, having done so in its first week alone.

Though it was nearly three years since Taylor Swift released a new album, the country star-turned- pop songstress still remained a near-constant presence in headlines since her triumphant 1989 tour (in support of her massive, Grammy-winning LP of the same name) concluded in December 2015.

Swift surprised fans by wiping her social media accounts clean and announcing a new album, Reputation, set to drop November 10th. As promised, she released feisty lead single, “Look What You Made Me Do,” a dance-pop song. With vengeful lyrics like “I don’t like your little games/ I don’t like your tilted stage,/ I don’t like you,” plus an effect that sounds as if she’s singing through a phone, the track seems to allude to her long, public feud with Kanye West.The noticeably

politically-absent singer made a rare endorsement. Swift wrote in an Instagram post that she would be voting for Tennessee Democrats in the midterm elections.

Taylor Swift became hugely popular at a young age before making career jumps from country to pop music -- and now, from apolitical to key political voice. This was the journey of famous American singer - song writer Taylor Swift.
