Just Announced: Taylor Swift, Foreigner, Pokafase
Why isn't Taylor Swift bigger than she is? Being the best selling artist of last year and having her own line of clothing at Wal-Mart, you might expect Taylor swift to be a little more exposed than she is. With a Rolling Stone cover this month and a Saturday Night Live appearance in January she's getting there, but the country kiddie still has a lower profile than many of her peers who've had much, much less success.
Changing that might start next month in Indiana where she launches her Fearless tour, which comes to Phoenix on May 21. Though she had two massive albums last year, she's never headlined a tour, so maybe that's the step she needs to take to establish herself the way Shania, Dolly and other country superstars have done. Who else is coming to town? Check out the full list on the jump.
