Where does the time go? It seems like just yesterday that I first heard this teenage girl named Taylor Swift singing a song about Tim McGraw.

I knew she would be good but had no idea that the female version of Garth had just been launched.

She has done amazing things in those 12 years and it all started with that self titled debut album. Here are a few hits from that musical introduction.
