Taylor Swift's Debut CD Certified Gold
Taylor Swift's self-titled debut album, which features the hit "Tim McGraw," has been certified gold for shipments of 500,000 copies. "I literally jump up and down when I tell people," she says. "I can't help it. The support I've gotten from my label, radio and fans is just undeniable and unbelievable. I didn't want to have a party for the release of the album. I wanted to wait to celebrate something fantastic, some great accomplishment. ... I think it's time to have that party." Currently serving as George Strait's opening act on his concert tour, Swift will be on the road with Brad Paisley in the spring.
