#tbt News Center Maine Interviews Taylor Swift In 2007
Let's take a trip all the way back to 2007!
Right before she catapulted to mega super stardom, our friends at News Center Maine were lucky enough to sang an interivew for their show 207, whcih still airs every weeknight at 7pm, on WLBZ Channel 2 here in Bangor.
Back before she became the pop artist she is today, her roots at the beginning were country, and Kathleen Shannon was able to sit down with her, when she opened up for Brad Paisley, at the then named, Cumberland County Civic Center In Portland. She was just 17 years old at the time, but she comes across as she does now at the age of 31, sweet, humble, hard working, and very down to earth. Who knew at the time that she would become one of the biggest stars in the world.
Since that night in Portland, her accomplishments speak for themselves, but what the heck, let's list a few! She has sales of over 200 million records worldwide.She 10 Grammy Awards, including two Album of the Year wins, an Emmy Award, seven Guinness World Records, 32 American Music Awards, which is the most ever(Michael Jackson is second with 26), 23 Billboard Music Awards,she ranks eighth on Billboard's Greatest of All Time Artists Chart, she is listed on Rolling Stone's 100 Greatest Songwriters of All Time, she made Time's annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world, in 2010, 2015 and 2019, and Forbes Celebrity 100, placing first in 2016 and 2019. Quite a resume!
On this Throwback Thursday, take a look back at the very start of her ever evolving journey.
Taylor's current tune on the Z is "Wiilow"
