Taylor Swift on Her 'Rolling Stone' Covers
Taylor Swift shot her first Rolling Stone cover in 2008 at age 19. The focus of the interview was on the imminent flood of mainstream acknowledgement: her first Grammy Award nomination. A month after press time, the award was hers.
The pop star's first cover was shot by Peggy Sirota, and the close up the teenage singer-songwriter with her acoustic guitar, her wild, frizzy locks obscuring her stare. "They really just captured where I was in that moment," Swift recently told the Rock Hall museum for the exhibition.
Swift now has 10 Grammy Awards out of 29 total nominations and has appeared on three RS covers. She is the youngest person (and first woman) in history to win Album of the Year more than once as the main credited artist.
