Taylor Alison Swift is an American singer-songwriter. She is known for narrative songs about her personal life, which have received widespread media coverage. At age 14, Swift became the youngest artist signed by the Sony/ATV Music publishing house and, at 15, she signed her first record deal.
Her 2006 eponymous debut album was the longest-charting album of the 2000s in the US. Its third single, "Our Song", made her the youngest person to single-handedly write and perform a number-one song on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. Swift's second album, Fearless, was released in 2008.
Buoyed by the pop crossover success of the singles "Love Story" and "You Belong with Me", it became the US' best-selling album of 2009 and was certified diamond in the US. The album won four Grammy Awards, and Swift became the youngest Album of the Year winner.
Taylor Swift has confirmed the fan theory about her mysterious co-writer William Bowery. Ahead of the release of her eighth studio album Folklore during the summer, the singer paid tribute to a mystery man named William Bowery, who had co-written two songs with her.
Fans of the pop superstar, 30, were convinced that the mystery man was actually Taylor’s boyfriend Joe Alwyn. They theorised that ‘William’ may be a pseudonym for her handsome boyfriend Joe, 29, who she has been dating for almost three years now.
Taylor confirmed the theory on Tuesday when she performed a number of songs from her eighth studio album on Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions on Disney+.
