TAYLOR SWIFT, THE BEST-SELLING MUSICAL ARTIST OF 2008, WILL GUEST STAR IN AN UPCOMING EPISODE OF "CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION"

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 12 - Taylor Swift, the best-selling musical artist of 2008, will guest star in an upcoming episode of the CBS Paramount Network Television and Jerry Bruckheimer Television series, CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION, on the CBS Television Network.

Taylor will play Haley Jones, a teenaged girl whose family runs a seedy Vegas motel. Over the course of a year, Haley goes through a series of changes that have tragic consequences.

Nineteen-year-old Taylor Swift currently has singles climbing both the country and pop radio charts, and sold more albums in 2008 than any other recording artist, in any genre of music. At the age of 18, Taylor released her second studio album, Fearless, which scored the biggest-selling debut week in 2008 for a female artist in any genre, and was the year's fourth biggest debut over all. Fearless had the best-selling debut for a country title in over a year, and Taylor currently holds the Billboard all-genre record for most Top 20 debuts in a calendar year. Fearless sold more than two million copies in its first six weeks in stores.

At 17, Taylor became the youngest person to single-handedly write and sing a number-one country single entirely on her own and she is the first female solo artist in country music history to write or co-write every song on a platinum-selling debut CD. At 14, she signed a publishing deal with Sony/ATV Music, and in 2006 released her self-titled debut CD on Big Machine Records. Taylor Swift has surpassed triple-platinum (three million sales) status and spent more than 20 weeks in the #1 position atop Billboard's Country CD Sales Chart. Taylor was named 2008's Favorite Female Country Artist at the American Music Awards, Top New Female Vocalist by the Academy of Country Music and won 2008 CMT Music Awards for Video of the Year and Female Video of the Year. In 2007, she received a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist and won the CMA Horizon Award. Taylor plans to headline a tour in 2009 and has toured in the past with Rascal Flatts, George Strait, Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw & Faith Hill and Brad Paisley.

CSI is produced by CBS Paramount Network Television in association with Jerry Bruckheimer Television. The executive producers are Jerry Bruckheimer, Carol Mendelsohn, Ann Donahue, Anthony Zuiker, Naren Shankar, Jonathan Littman, William Petersen, Cynthia Chvatal and Ken Fink.
