Last spring, after Swift accepted Britany’s invitation to be maid of honor via Instagram—kids today!
—she took Maack to Reem Acra, where Britany got fitted for her custom hand-embroidered silk-taffeta wedding gown and Taylor for the blush-pink, cap-sleeved chiffon maid-of-honor dress that she has on today (the fitting was also Instagrammed, naturally).
"Teardrops on My Guitar" was released as the second single and was the album's best-charting song on the Billboard Hot 100.
"Our Song" was released as the third single from the album and was Swift's first number one on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart.
Swift’s 2015 stare-down of Apple—she declined to put her hit album on Apple’s nascent streaming-music service when the company said it would not pay artists during its initial launch; Apple changed its policy immediately and paid everyone—was a seismic example of a single artist’s toppling corporate might.
At 26, Swift is world famous, wealthy, critically celebrated, a style influencer, and a cultural movement unto herself, recognizable everywhere she goes. And yet today, in this chapel atop a hill in Reading, Pennsylvania, Swift is none of those things.
Taylor Swift is the debut studio album by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, released on October 24, 2006, by Big Machine Records.

Wildest Dreams Written by Taylor Swift, Max Martin & Shellback LYRICS He said let’s get out of this town Drive out of the city Away from the crowds I thought heaven can’t help me now Nothing lasts forever But this is gonna take me down He’s so tall and handsome as hell He’s so bad but he does it so well I can see the end as it begins My one condition is Chorus Say you’ll remember me Standing in a nice dress Staring at the sunset, babe Red lips and rosy cheeks Say you’ll see me again Even if it’s just in your Wildest dreams Wildest dreams I said no one has to know what we do His hands are in my hair His clothes are in my room And his voice is a familiar sound Nothing lasts forever But this is getting good now He’s so tall and handsome as hell He’s so bad but he does it so well When we’ve had our very last kiss My last request is Chorus You’ll see me in hindsight Tangled up with you all night Burning it down Someday when you leave me I bet these memories Follow you around You’ll see me in hindsight Tangled up with you all night Burning it down Someday when you leave me I bet these memories Follow you around Chorus (X2) © 2014 Sony/ATV Tree Publishing/ Taylor Swift Music (BMI), MXM Music AB.(ASCAP) (All Rights Administered by Kobalt Songs Music Publishing, Inc.)

How You Get The Girl Written by Taylor Swift, Max Martin & Shellbac LYRICS Stand there like a ghost Shaking from the rain She’ll open up the door And say are you insane Say it’s been a long six months And you were too afraid To tell her what you want And that’s how it works That’s how you get the girl And then you say Chorus I want you for worse or for better I would wait forever and ever Broke your heart I’ll put it back together I would wait forever and ever And that’s how it works That’s how you get the girl Remind her how it used to be Pictures in frames Of kisses on cheeks Tell her how you must have lost your mind When you left her all alone And never told her why That’s how it works That’s how you lost the girl And now you say Chorus ‘Cause you know I don’t want you to go Remind me how it used to be Pictures in frames, kisses on cheeks And say you want me Chorus And that’s how it works That’s how you got the girl © 2014 Sony/ATV Tree Publishing/ Taylor Swift Music (BMI), MXM Music AB.
