When you dominate the country music industry at such a young age, people are bound to take notice. That is exactly why Taylor is the only teen in the Top Ten of TIME’s 2010 “Most Influential Artists in the World.” She has flat out dominated the country music genre.
Taylor made the Top Ten at the #9 spot, just behind Suzanna Collins and in front of Neil Patrick Harris.
The rest of the Top Ten for the Artists list includes: #1 Lady Gaga, #2 Conan O’Brien, #3 Kathryn Bigelow, #4 Oprah Winfrey, #5 Valery Gergiev, #6 Robert Pattinson, #7 Ashton Kutcher, #8 Suzanne Collins, #10 Neil Patrick Harris.
