Taylor Swift’s net worth is nothing short of astounding! As Taylor Swift has made clear throughout her career, she was born in 1989, and she is damn proud of it. She was born in Reading, Pennsylvania, and took after her grandmother in the singing department.
A stark contrast to fellow entertainer Emenim’s upbringing, Swift had a very stable childhood. In her early years, her grandmother had worked professionally as an opera singer.
At the age of 10, Swift was singing at local fairs and singing competitions. She was obsessed with music and songwriting. At the age of 11, she sang ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ at a Philadelphia 76ers basketball game.
She started playing the guitar when she was 12, which made the songwriting process so much easier. She was able to create a song by herself now. Her family took notice of her incredible dedication to the craft, so they moved to Hendersonville, Tennessee, to be closer to Nashville, aka Music City U.S.A.
After impressing everyone with a performance at The Bluebird Cafe, she signed a contract with Big Machine Records. Like Bill Gates, her first project propelled Taylor Swift’s net worth to celebrity status. It quickly became a top 10 hit on the country charts. Later that year, Swift released her self-titled debut studio album.
Five singles were released from the album, and they were all hits going certified platinum. The album topped the Top Country Albums Chart for 24 non-consecutive weeks and has sold over seven million copies.
In 2008, Swift released her second studio album titled Fearless. As with her first album, she wrote or co-wrote all 13 tracks. It debuted at number one in the United States and would later become the best-selling album of 2009.
It sold over 3.2 million copies in one year, and as of December 2017, it has sold more than 9 million copies worldwide. It also took home the Grammy for Album of the Year.
And then she changed up everything in 2014 with the release of her fifth studio album, 1989. She abandoned her country roots and turned herself into a pop star, and much to everyone’s surprise, it worked.
The pop album was a tremendous success and earned Swift her second Grammy win for Album of the Year, making her the first female artist to win the category twice.
So with all this success, you might be wondering, “How much is Taylor Swift’s net worth over the years?” Well, the answer is A LOT. Her net worth is estimated to be just north of $320 million.
During her 1989 world tour, she was bringing home $2.5 million every stop. That means she was making over $2 million in a single night. In total, the tour grossed over $250 million, and Swift got around $170 million of that. Not bad for 85 shows.
