Young talent can come from any direction. If you are born to be a star you will shine brighter than the rest.
Taylor Swift from Wyomissing, Pennsylvania kicked off her career at the young age of 14. Her parents packed up their family and moved to Nashville, Tennessee to let Taylor pursue her growing dream to create music for the entire world to enjoy.
