Taylor Swift Graduates High School + Celebrating with Top 2 Albums!

28 Jul

Country music sweetheart Taylor Swift had a good reason for missing her high school graduation—she’s on tour with Rascal Flatts.

The 18-year-old “Our Song” singer just received her diploma via snail mail and blogs on MySpace about the joys of being a high school graduate:

“Another thing I’m excited about is that I’ve officially graduated from high school!! CLASS OF 2008. YESSSSSSS. Even if I’ve been home schooled for the past 2 years, it still means a lot to me that I have my diploma.”

Swift attended public school before her career took off, then switched to Aaron Academy, a private Christian school that offers homeschooling.

Last week, Swift became the first artist since LeAnn Rimes in 1997 to hold the two top positions on the Top Country Albums chart, with her new Wal-Mart-exclusive EP release, Beautiful Eyes, at No. 1 and her triple-platinum, self-titled debut album at No. 2.

“I’m having the most amazing week! Thanks to you guys, I’ve got the 1 AND 2 country album this week,” she writes. “Thank you to everybody who went out to Wal-Mart this week and bought Beautiful Eyes. I’m so thankful for you. Wow. It’s pretty unbelievable.”

She gets our vote for “Most Likely to Succeed.” 🙂
