Taylor Swift’s self-titled debut CD was released. Singles from the album included "Tim McGraw" (#6), "Our Song" (#1), "Should've Said No" (#1), "Picture To Burn" (#1) and "Teardrops On My Guitar" (#2).

6 versions of the album have been released, including one version in which a second version of "Picture To Burn" was inserted due to controversy over the song's lyrics. "Our Song", Swift's first #1, made her the youngest person to single-handedly write and perform a number one song on the country charts.

The album topped the country charts for 24 non-consecutive weeks, and logged 274 weeks on the album charts. It has since been certified 5x platinum and become the first debut CD by a female country artist who has written all the songs to achieve platinum status.
