Her disappointments, triumphs, anger, fears, love and friendships have been well-documented in songs such as “Tim McGraw,” “Picture To Burn,” Fifteen,” and now “Mine,” “Back To December,” and “Innocent” and all of the brand new songs from the album Speak NowTaylor Swift admitted in an interview with VH1 that if you walk into her life, you may end up being a “character” in one of her songs.  The 20-year-old singer-songwriter urges everyone to write down how they feel – “in a journal, in a diary, in a letter you will never send to anybody, because it’s so important to diagnose your feelings, save them in some form of writing, because it just helps you feel like a more organized person.”

In celebration of the release of her new album Speak Now, Taylor Swift will appear on numerous TV shows across the networks! Complete appearance schedule here!

The 14-song set includes the first single “Mine” as well as “Innocent,” the song Swift penned about last year’s run-in with Kanye West and premiered at the MTV VMA’s on September 12th.

“The most musically diverse [album] of her career…. And it’s excellent too, possibly her best.” ~ The New York Times

“Brilliant. The stone-hearted among [the cynics] who listen to Speak Now will find it hard to complain that Swift somehow stole that Best Album Grammy for Fearless. Entirely self-penned, sans the collaborations of the previous albums, it’s an enormous breakthrough in songwriting maturity….It’ll be decades before she’s holding her peace.” ~ The Hollywood Reporter

“Dear John” might be her masterpiece to date, or at least the most bracingly, joltingly honest song you’ve heard any major performer have the nerve to put on record in years.” ~ Yahoo Music

Taylor Swift has again achieved the near-impossible…with a third bundle of melodic, cathartic country-pop. Speak Now is another unrestrained grand-slam. 4 Stars” ~ Us Weekly
