Taylor Swift stays at the top

Thursday, August 2, 2007 – Forty weeks after its release, Taylor Swift's self-titled debut CD remains atop of Billboard's Country Albums chart, with sales this week of 35,525 albums. This is Swift's second consecutive week at number one.

Swift just wrapped a series of dates on Tim McGraw and Faith Hill's Soul2Soul 2007 tour. "Taylor proved that she has what it takes to be a real artist in country music and why her fans love her so," said Hill of touring with Taylor. "It was a thrill to have her on the Soul2Soul tour. She was professional, prepared, gracious, and most of all, gifted. The real deal."

Immediately after wrapping her Soul2Soul dates, Swift hooked back up with Brad Paisley's Bonfires & Amplifiers tour, which she joined in May, at Paisley's specific request. On Paisley's tour, Taylor performs a 25 minute set with her full band. She will tour with Paisley through November along with headlining some of her own shows.

CD review - Speak Now Taylor Swift has made the best CD of her young career with her fourth CD. The biggest difference is that Swift's singing, spotty on previous releases and live performances, is far far superior here. Swift wrote all 14 songs here, which like her other albums tend to deal with relationships that have gone south. Swift's songwriting always has been one of her strengths, and that continues to be the case here - both lyrically and musically. Put simply, Swift knows a lot about penning ...
CD review - Fearless Taylor Swift took the county world by storm with her huge selling debut and its five hit singles. With a huge marketing push and myspace, Swift was on her way. Kind of like an Avril Lavigne for the teen female country set. Sophomore slump? There's no indication of that. Swift once again writes her material - all 13 songs here with help sometimes from Liz Rose, Colbie Caillat and John Rich. Swift writes of what she knows about - relationships and teen love come and gone in songs speak to her fans. ...
