At the ripe old age of 20, [artist id="2389485"]Taylor Swift[/artist] has accomplished a lot. She’s broken chart records , sold millions of albums and won Grammys, VMAs, AMAs and CMAs. She has even launched her own clothing and greeting card lines. There’s very little she hasn’t accomplished.
And, after Swift’s four Grammy wins on Sunday night, including Album of the Year, many fans may be asking: What is next for the country pop superstar? Actually, she’s got a whole lot more planned for 2010.
Swift is currently working on a follow-up to her 2008 release, Fearless. She recently tweeted that she’s been in the studio with the same crew behind the successful album. “Studio-ness with all the same boys who played on Fearless. Homemade cupcakes were brought. Awkward fist-pumps happened. Onward!” she wrote. “More recording. So excited. So excited. So excited. See, I said that three times. Once for every album we’ve made in this studio.”
In an interview with Rolling Stone, she shared that she’s already got a number of songs banked for an album. “I like to have two years in between albums, so if you take Fearless and go forward two years, that’s my ideal place to put out the next record, because I think two years of growth and development and feelings and life intake, love intake, emotion output, is my preferred formula for albums right now.”
While she told RS that her album is influenced by Keith Urban and John Mayer, it wasn’t too long ago that she told MTV News that she’d like to work with Jack White . And anyone who saw her hilarious “T-Swizzle” rap video at the CMT Music Awards last year wouldn’t be surprised to see Swift work in a few new genres into her country sound.
In the immediate future, Swift will also be on the road this spring for the second leg of her Fearless tour . And she’ll also be seen the big screen in the A-list-filled rom-com, “Valentine’s Day,” opposite rumored one-time beau Taylor Lautner.
“I got to be sort of the opposite of who I was in high school; my character is pretty superficial,” she revealed to MTV News about her role in the film, adding that even with Hollywood calling she has no plans to abandon Nashville. “I do like acting. Music is always going to be number one. Everything in my life, whether it be love or movies or anything, is always going to come behind music. But movies are great, if you’re telling the right story. I’m all about telling the right story.”
