Nashville, TN--COUNTRY THUNDER USA – the nation’s premier country music and camping festival – returns for its 16th year to the Shadow Hill Ranch, July 16-19. This unforgettable music extravaganza is proud to announce that Country music’s newly minted superstar Taylor Swift has been added to the star-studded performance line-up.

Eighteen-year-old Swift is the first female solo artist in country music history to write or co-write every song on a double platinum-selling debut CD. Her self-titled debut album, released on Big Machine Records in late 2006, ranks among the top 10 sellers for 2007 in all genres—selling 2.4 million and rapidly approaching triple-platinum. Additionally, Taylor leads the field of female nominees for this year’s Academy of Country Music Awards with three nominations: Top Female Vocalist, Album of the Year (for her double-platinum self-titled debut CD), and Top New Female Vocalist. The ACM Awards will be broadcast live on CBS on Sunday, May 18th. Taylor is nominated for two 2008 CMT Music Awards for her “Our Song” video: Female Video of the Year, and the evening’s top honor, Video of the Year. The CMT Awards air live on CMT on Monday, April 14th.
