DR. SEUSS' THE LORAX

TAYLOR SWIFT (Audrey) is a four-time Grammy Award winner, Billboard's 2011 Woman of the Year and the reigning American Music Awards Artist of the Year, as well as the Entertainer of the Year for both the Country Music Association and the Academy of Country Music. Her "Speak Now” album has sold more than five million copies worldwide and she is the biggest-selling albums artist in any genre of music over the past 12 months.

Swift is the top-selling digital artist in music history, Billboard's current Top 200 Albums Artist (all genres) and Entertainment Weekly's 2010 Entertainer of the Year. Her singles have topped both the country and pop radio charts and have sold more albums than any other artist in any genre of music last year. With 1,046,718 copies sold in the U.S. in the first week of release, her "Speak Now” album scored Nielsen SoundScan's biggest single-week sales total since 2005 and is the biggest-debuting country studio album in history. With the release of "Speak Now,” Swift made history on the Billboard Hot 100, charting a record-breaking 11 songs from one album in a single week. Swift, who writes all of her own songs, has career-record sales now in excess of 20 million albums and 40 million song downloads. Her "Fearless” album was 2009's top-selling CD, and she was the top-selling artist of 2008.

At the age of 20, Swift became the youngest artist in history to win the music industry's highest honor: the Grammy Award for Album of the Year. Also at the 2010 Grammys, she took home the awards for Country Album of the Year, Best Country Song and Best Country Female Vocal Performance. Her six-time-platinum "Fearless” album is the most awarded album in country music history.

In 2009, she was named Artist of the Year at the American Music Awards (for the first time) and also became the youngest artist in the 43-year history of the Country Music Association to be awarded country music's top prize when she took home the CMA Award for Entertainer of the Year. Swift is one of only two female artists in history to win country music's highest honor twice. She currently holds the Billboard all-genre records for the longest-charting album of this century, for the most top-20 debuts in a calendar year and for the largest overall airplay audience for a country-based act.

Swift is on tour in support of "Speak Now,” having played 98 shows in 17 countries in 2011, with the tour continuing in Australia and New Zealand in 2012. Her 15-month, 107-date "Fearless” 2009/2010 tour sold out arenas and stadiums in 88 cities in five countries spanning four continents.

Swift released her first-ever concert CD and DVD set, "Speak Now World Tour – Live,” on November 21 of last year.
