Country Superstar Taylor Swift Joins The Mohegan Sun Walk of Fame

Taylor Swift celebrates a sold-out show by adding her star to the roster of entertainers who have performed at Mohegan Sun

Mohegan Sun is pleased to announce that one of the queens of Country, Taylor Swift, has joined the list of top-tier entertainers who have become a part of the Mohegan Sun Walk of Fame.  Her induction took place Friday, August 28th in the forecourt of the Mohegan Sun Box Office.   Accepting her honor before a very large crowd of excited fans, a grinning Swift said, “This is the best start to my day ever!  Thank you all so much for being here, I can’t wait to have a blast with you guys tonight!”

Swift’s first two performances at Mohegan Sun took place in 2007 where she was the opener for George Strait during his two-night stand in the Arena on April 26th & 27th.  Then in 2008, Swift was the special guest on Rascal Flatts’ enormously successful Bob That Head tour, which played two sold-out shows at Mohegan Sun Arena on November 1st & 2nd.  Since then, Taylor Swift has become one of the biggest names in the music industry, headlining one of the year’s most successful tours and achieving a record-breaking two-minute sell-out at Mohegan Sun for her show in the Arena on August 28th. 

Fearless, Taylor Swift’s second studio album, was released in November 2008 and scored the biggest-selling debut week in 2008 for a female artist in any genre and was the year’s fourth biggest debut. Her previous release, 2006′s Taylor Swift, surpassed triple-platinum status, spent more than twenty weeks in the #1 position atop Billboard’s Country CD Sales chart, and she became the first female solo artist in Country music history to write or co-write every song on a platinum-selling debut CD. Fearless is the first album since Santana’s Supernatural to top the Billboard 200 for eleven non-consecutive weeks.
