At age thirteen, after visiting Nashville numerous times to distribute samples of her music, Swift is offered a one year developmental deal with RCA Records.
I decided to move to Nashville when I was about 10 years old. I began relentlessly nagging, begging, and pleading with my parents to take me on a trip there. When I was 11, my mom took my brother and me to Nashville on spring break and we drove up and down Music Row. She would wait in the car as I scampered into record labels one by one, handing my demo CD to the receptionists.
