Taylor Swift was born in Reading, PA and reared in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania. Her dad, Scott is a financial advisor for Merrill Lynch and her mom, Andrea is a homemaker. Taylor has always had a love for country music. At the tender age of 14, her family moved to Nashville, Tennessee to give her the opportunity of pursuing a career in the music industry. Taylor Swift was signed by a Nashville label and shortly thereafter, the album Taylor Swift was recorded and released. This album was said to be a somewhat diary of Swift’s teenage years. She has had numerous album releases including Fearless, Speak Now and Red and there will certainly be more as Taylor Swift is commonly known as America’s Sweetheart. Taylor has even expanded her horizons and jumped into the world of acting, feet first. She has appeared on the televisions shows CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and Saturday Night Live. Swift also appeared in the movies, Hannah Montana: the Movie where she co-stars with Miley Cyrus, Jonas Brothers: the 3-D Experience and Valentine’s Day. Her voice was also used in the Blockbuster animated movie, The Lorax.
In 2009, Taylor Swift earned 18 Million dollars from album sales and concerts. The following years, her income jumped up to 45 Million in 2010 and 2011. From the beginning of 2012 until August of that year, Swift raked in a cool 57 Million dollars and was the Top Money Maker in the music industry, according to the 2012 Billboard Money Makers Chart. She is estimated to have a net worth of 165 Million dollars.
So, how much is 165 Million dollars really?
If Taylor Swift wanted to be generous and buy her fans new cowboy boots, she could easily thrill 2,752,294 people. In reality, she could supply those boots to every single person who visits the Grand Ol’ Opry in Nashville for 626 days. That’s more than a year and a half of performances and shows.
In the event Swift would like to help those attending performances at the Opry have a good time; she could supply 6,613,226 people with a bottle of Jack Daniel’s Whiskey. She’d have to hang out in front of the popular spot for a little over 4 years to hand out all of those bottles!
