Taylor spent her early years working on a Christmas tree farm in Cumru Township, Pennsylvania. Then, the family moved to a five-bedroom house in Wyomissing, just outside the city of Reading. The 3,560 square foot Georgian Colonial home's high ceilings would have created excellent acoustics for the rising star.
