Taylor Swift might only be a teenager — she doesn't turn 20 until Dec. 13 — but already she's breaking music records: The crossover country star has nabbed the honor of having Billboard's  longest charting album of this century with her debut, Taylor Swift.

Her self-titled first CD was released in October of 2006, when Taylor was just old enough for a driver's license. It's now on its 157th week on Billboard's Top 200 albums chart, passing up the record previously held by Nickelback.

But that's not all — the songstress also holds the Billboard record for most Top 10 debuts in a calendar year, and is the only solo female act in the 44-year history of the Billboard Country Chart to score five Top 10 singles from a debut album.

Taylor will accomplish another big feat this Saturday when she acts as both the host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live. The last time a female country artist was both the host and performer was Dolly Parton, twenty years ago.
