After recording several demo tapes of her singing along to karaoke songs at a studio, they began taking regular trips to Nashville where they handed them out at every label in order to obtain a record deal.
There she began performing casually, meet and write with local songwriters in the area.
The album’s lead-off single Love Story occupied the top of Hot 100 hit.

Ultimately, her family made the decision to move to nearby Nashville suburb.
While performing at Nashville’s The Bluebird Café, Swift caught the eye of music industry veteran Scott Borchetta, who signed her to his newly formed independent record label Big Machine Records and released her debut single, Tim Mc Graw, in August 2006.
Her music that became more mature may not quite jibe with her age but it does help make Fearless one of the best mainstream pop albums of 2008.
"I wanted something that had meaning and melody, and more empowering lyrics." Thats exactly what she delivers in "A Year Without Rain." Working with top producer/songwriters like Tim James & Antonina Armato, Kevin Rudolf, Toby Gad and Jonas Jeberg, Selena kept to a more quickened tempo, exploring themes of love, freedom and the joy of living for the moment.
Selena credits the albums neo-techno leanings to her 2010 platinum-certified single, Naturally," which pointed the way for her.
It turned out to be a doubtless success and brought her fame.
Swift wrote or co-wrote all of the songs on the album Original compositions from her debut set are filled with all the ebullience and drama of adolescent life.
