It's kinda hard to believe... our little girl is growing up! It's Taylor Swift's birthday and I, for one, am wondering how the young superstar intends to celebrate. Taylor Swift celebrates her 22nd birthday today, and she has a lot to celebrate this year. She was named CMA Entertainer of the Year, AMA Artist of the Year, Billboard’s 2011 Woman of the Year and one of CMT’s Artists of the Year. Taylor shares some words of advice for young fans who hope to follow in her footsteps. In an interview with CMT Daily Roundup, Miss Swift said, “Get inspiration from all your heroes, but try to be something completely different from your heroes. You know, for me, I think that writing my own songs was a way to create what I wanted to create, and music about my life, and that way it kind of became just a diary put to music every time I put out a new record.” Taylor plans to release a new album in 2012.

You can hear Taylor Swift every day on KIXS 108.
