Nashville Artists Make Forbes ’30 Under 30′ List

Nashville-based artists Taylor Swift and Kesha have made Forbes Magazine’s annual ’30 Under 30 list.’ The list acknowledges the high achievement of people under age 30 in several categories, including food and wine, education and the arts.

“In sum, they represent the entrepreneurial, creative and intellectual best of their generation,” the magazine said in describing the group. “Individually, they are engaging, surprising and incredibly hardworking.”

Pop music entertainer Kesha, 25, and country music singer Swift, 23, have both earned numerous honors in the music world. Kesha has won several Billboard awards, her singles “Tik Tok” and “We R Who We R” both topped the Billboard Hot 100 charts and her latest album, Warrior, cracked the Top 10 on the Billboard 200. Swift’s recent album Red moved 1.2 units in its first week of release, she has grossed over $1 million for her live shows and she has locked in high-profile endorsements such as her partnership with CoverGirl.
