Taylor Swift may be our Woman of the Year, but we remember Swift when she was just a young thing, 16 and getting her footing. Back in July 2006, when Taylor’s debut single “Tim McGraw” was creeping up our Country Songs chart, she stopped by Billboard’s New York offices to entertain our staff.
Now we’re rolling out the vintage footage (above), in which Swift warns us, “I want you all to know that I really do try to be a nice person. BUT if you break my heart or hurt my feelings or make me feel really bad or are really mean to me, I’m gonna write a song about you.”
