Swift resided in Wyomissing, PA which is in Berks County for most of her high school years before moving to Nashville to pursue her country music career. She quickly rose to fame as one of the premier group of young female country music artists which includes Swift, Carrie Underwood and Kelly Pickler.

At the Grammy Awards Taylor Swift was nominated for a number of awards including Best County album for her recent recording 'Red'. Swift came up empty at the Grammy's, maybe because as PolicyMic states her recent offering 'Red" with it's dance beats felt like Swift had "left country" and "crossed into pop," an area at the Grammys which was not bereft of talented artists. does the name Lorde mean anything to anybody?

According to Eonline.com, Tim McGraw and Miranda Lambert lead the ACM nominees with seven nominations apiece. Close behind is Keith Urban, who nabbed six nominations and "Lee Brice, Kacey Musgraves (who beat out Swift for album of the year at the Grammys), Blake Shelton and Taylor Swift." are next with five nominations apiece and Florida Georgia Line lady Antebellum who each are up for four awards.
