Taylor Swift - Random Fun Facts

Linda (Kaywood) Bilyeu is a self-published author. Her books are available on Amazon. She writes from the heart—there is no other way.

Dear Taylor Swift

I've been intending to create a tribute to Taylor Swift for quite some time. But Taylor has been so busy and keeping up with her busy schedule hasn't been easy.

In the past few years Taylor's life has become a world wind phenomenon! I can't even imagine what goes through her mind when she arises each morning. Darn good thing Taylor is young and energetic to keep up with her dream coming true.

Does all the fame continue to seem surreal to her? I'm sure it does, but she is having a blast which is a great eye opener.

Taylor's parents believed in her gift and because of their parental intuition her dreams have become a reality. They also raised a young girl who matured into a young woman who uses her voices to help make a difference.

Congratulations to Taylor for all she has accomplished at her young age. She is a humble, down to earth kind of woman who many young girls look up to. Hopefully she will continue to set a good example and not follow in the footsteps of other pop stars who took the wrong path.


I hope you keep on doing what you are doing because it seems to be working.

The first song that I heard of Taylor's was Tim McGraw back in 2006, which also happened to be her first hit.

I thought who is this girl singing about my favorite country music artist?

I did my research and discovered it was Taylor Alison Swift a 16 year old girl from Reading, PA. I then became her fan.

I hope I do justice Taylor justice with my tribute. She has given so much of herself to pleasing her fans that the least I could is give something back to her.

Within my family, your admiring fans span three generations. From my granddaughters, to my daughters to myself. We love listening, singing and dancing along to Tay-Tay's tunes. From ages 2-51 ... there is not a song we do not like!

I often suggest to my granddaughter that I think Taylor would make an amazing babysitter...she agrees. So, Taylor if you have any free time we would appreciate having you babysit my grandkids...I'll gladly reimburse you for your time.

Thanks for the entertainment T-Swizzle. Wishing you many more years of success.

I'm not a huge Taylor Swift fan, but I do like Sparks Fly :)..I think she would be an even better artist if her lyrics matured a little bit.

Sherry Hewins from Sierra Foothills, CA on December 14, 2012:

She's really got a way with words, I think her songwriting will take her far. She's a beautiful girl with a beautiful voice and seems really sweet. Kanye West seems to have done her a great favor by treating her so rudely (hard to believe anybody would actually do that).

Danson Wachira from Nairobi, Kenya on November 01, 2012:

Hi Sunshine625,

Taylor Swift is a really gifted superstar, i would not like to imagine what would happen if Taylor shared just one of my hubs on her FB page, with 31 million fans it can be viral .....(tch!) wishful thinking. Voted up, useful and shared.

NotPC on October 23, 2012:

I love Taylor Swift! Thanks for sharing!

Rich from Kentucky on October 23, 2012:

Okay, now I know I'm losing my mind. This is the 2nd hub today that I've read of yours and know I commented prior. I'm being erased out of your life, Linda! lol Perhaps HP is getting ready to cast me aside, who know? Anyway, I've always enjoyed Taylor's albums, but remember several live performances where she was absolutely off key big time. Jitters? Inexperience? Whatever. She's gotten past that and has yet to be tainted by success as Ms. Rimes has been (Including performing in a bikini at an award ceremony a year or so ago.) Great tribute! But why would anyone ever expect anything else from one so talented!?!

jenbeach21 from Orlando, FL on October 23, 2012:

My daughter's favorite song is "Mean" on her last album. I have recorded her singing it. Looking forward to the new album!

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on October 05, 2012:

Hi Josh, What's not to like about T-Swizzle? OK, others might have reasons not to like her. Yet, we don't! I love her Tim McGraw song, that was the first song I heard of Taylor's :) Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate it!

mythicalstorm273 on July 18, 2012:

Taylor Swift is almost my favorite of all time! Well she is up there at least and on many days I think she wins! This was so fun to read because of my love of her purity and her music. I can listen to almost all of her songs over and over again. I also enjoy watching the videos that go with them! Great tribute to a wonderful woman!

Janine Huldie from New York, New York on July 18, 2012:

What a lovely tribute to Taylor Swift, Sunshine. She is one of my favorites, too. She is wise beyond her 22 years and it shows up in her music. She is a great role model, so far, for young people and I hope she stays the sweet, humble, talented young lady that she is.

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on May 24, 2012:

Thanks MelChi for sharing your thoughts! I'm glad you learned something new!:)

I appreciate the link emilybee! Consider us hub-mates!:)

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on May 24, 2012:

Hi Mary, I agree she doesn't have Dolly's gimmicks but TS could sure write a song! Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

emilybee on May 24, 2012:

Hi Sunshine! I just added a link to your hub on my Taylor hub so more TS fans will be sure to drift your way :)

Melanie Chisnall from Cape Town, South Africa on May 24, 2012:

There are so many things about Taylor Swift that I didn't know and you've made me like her even more. Not only has she got an amazing voice, but she writes her own songs and is generally a really nice person! Enjoyed reading this hub! :)

Mary Craig from New York on May 24, 2012:

You certainly did pull it off. That's a lot of information. She is a lovely young lady with a lot of talent. Her song writing ability puts you in mind of Dolly Parton. She doesn't have Dolly's "gimmicks" of course but she is young and has a whole career ahead of her. Voted up.

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on May 24, 2012:

Hi wewillmake, You Belong With Me is my 3rd favorite song after Tim McGraw and Mean. Thanks for stopping by!:)

Super Duper list of TS Facts. I've really enjoyed her music and songs. I wrote about her on my website, too. What a life story! Blessings, Debby

P.S. I'm still listening to the videos.

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on May 23, 2012:

Hi dmop, Your family is lucky that they get to hear your tunes at get togethers! You ever know who might be waking by one day and hear you! Positive thinking!:)

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on May 23, 2012:

Hi Emily, I'm going to have to check out your hub about Taylor. I wish we could share links in hub comments, it would make it easier for us! Yes her Tim McGraw song is awesome!! Thanks for stopping by!:)

dmop from Cambridge City, IN on May 23, 2012:

The first song I remember hearing was Tear Drops on My Guitar, been a fan every since. If I had an eighth of her talent I might do more than sing and play in my garage and for family at get-to-gathers. I think she is the best song writer since John Lennon. Great Hub; voted up, all but funny, and shared.

emilybee on May 23, 2012:

Love this! I wrote a little biography hub on Taylor way back. I, too, remember hearing the song Tim Mcgraw and, I love Tim (probably not as much as you do :)) She has come a long way but I have to say I really miss her older stuff. Some of her new stuff is very pop-like and modernized with all the special effects, I liked her plain country sounding voice. Great hub Sunshine :)

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on May 23, 2012:

Thank you lovedoctor and Brian! Taylor and I appreciate your comments!:)

bmcoll3278 on May 23, 2012:

Very very good work sunshine. She is an awesome entertainer.

lovedoctor926 on May 23, 2012:

Taylor Swift has a gifted voice. I like all her songs. She is also a natural beauty. A very good tribute sunshine. vote up awesome!

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on May 23, 2012:

Dana, your comment is too funny! I hope your friend enjoys a wee bit of this article...I'm sure there is something she would agree with.

I'm a Bieber fan also. I think he's entertaining in a way. I torture my friend with country music videos. She has nothing on me since I like all her types of music. Thanks for your fun comment!:)

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on May 23, 2012:

Hi Christy, 20 minutes and Love Story wasn't a one hit wonder...that's impressive! Thanks for stopping by!:)

Dana Strang from Ohio on May 23, 2012:

You cetainly put together quite a list. To write, sing, and play guitar - what a talent! I love her songs.

Onr of my best friends is a "taylo Swift "anti-fan". She just doesn't like her. And I can see one of her hang-ups. There is something hiding behind those squinty eyes! A mean streak perhaps? I am going to post this on my friends facebook page to get her back for all of the Justin Bieber posts on mine. I don' tknow why, but he totally creeps me out!

Thanks for the cool info, and the ammo! :)

Christy Birmingham from British Columbia, Canada on May 23, 2012:

I did not know she wrote Love Song in 20 minutes. That is one of her biggest hits! Well done, these are such interesting facts about her. She seems so down to earth, which is amazing given her fame!

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on May 23, 2012:

Hi Alecia, Leann is another story! Drama queen. I didn't know Justin was on Ellen more times then Taylor. I never saw him on the show. I know I heard Taylor say just last week she's been on the show 8 or 9 times, I can't remember. I hope Taylor finds time to pop on here and set the facts straight. Thank you for letting me know about Justin:))

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on May 23, 2012:

Hi Teaches, Yes TS is very humble. Hopefully she'll stay that way even with her popularity.

Suzie from Carson City on May 23, 2012:

the video is hysterical. Ellen is too funny and such a prankster!! Taylor is a good sport!

Alecia Murphy from Wilmington, North Carolina on May 23, 2012:

I like her music and more than that I like that she's herself. She isn't like a lot of other young artists who have sold out- including her musical idol LeAnn Rimes-that's another story.

But I didn't know she was named after James Taylor (NC Native!)-that's a really good omen. I think she may be the second most popular guest on Ellen- I think Justin Timberlake is number one if I remember right but either way Ellen knows who to invite to keep the party awesome! Great hub!

Dianna Mendez on May 23, 2012:

For being so young, she has accomplished much. I saw her on the news the other day as she was told she was going to receive and award. She was so humble.

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on May 22, 2012:

Thank you kindly Stoker. Thanks to you for turning me onto T-Swizzle :)

Stokermm from Gainesville, FL on May 22, 2012:

Hi, Linda, tell Taylor Swift about this lovely, laudatory tribute with a tweet. Your accolades should win at least an album or two from her. She is an extraordinary song writer with a very pleasant personality. Thanks for all the info tidbits.

Sunshine.....with all her wealth and fame.....what a little old lady from NY thinks, would never phase her in the least. Believe me.

I appreciate your thoughts Effer. I'm not sure if TS will. Haha! Thank you!:)

Hi Kelley! I guess the drivers license mishaps occurred before her string of good luck!

Taylor is on Ellen again as I write this comment. Haha!

Sunshine, what a wonderful woman to write about. I guess she can't be great at everything, taking her drivers license test three times, Ahh. Enjoyed this! Take care, kelley

Well...Taylor's fame and popularity cannot be denied, by anyone. She's won more awards than General Patton, her concerts sell out almost immediately, and her album sales have broken records galore.

She has an enormous, dedicated fan base and the name "Talyor Swift" is known world-wide. She's a great entertainer, quite pretty and a really sweet person.

Your hub on her is wonderful and loaded with lots of interesting information, Linda Sue.

All of this absolutely true, I personally, find her music, "average," repetitive, quite youth specific and I hear nothing extraoridnary in her vocal talent. Comparatively speaking, per my musical taste and preference....Taylor is a young, energetic & cute blonde who sings and strums a guitar. I've heard similar music by local kids at a County Fair. Just my own honest opinion.

Sometimes, the best songs come about in the least amount of time! I absolutely love "Love Story". I thought the melody was catchy and the colors, in the song, were outstanding. Great Hub, Sunshine!
