Swift released her first single, ‘Tim McGraw,’ on June 19, 2006. The song, which Swift wrote with Liz Rose, peaked at No. 6 on the country charts and at No. 40 on the pop charts. Swift won the CMA Horizon Award, as well as an ACM Award for Top Female Vocalist, partially thanks to the success of her self-titled album Taylor Swift.
