Taylor Swift is leaving Nashville and heading for the bright lights of Sin City.
Fresh off her gig on “Saturday Night Live,” the country cutie will test out her acting chops on an upcoming episode of “CSI,” Access Hollywood has learned.
In her guest-starring role, Taylor will play Haley Jones, a teen whose family runs a seedy Las Vegas motel. However, a series of changes over the course of a year for Haley wind up having tragic consequences.
It will mark the first primetime acting gig for the singer, who was recently named the best-selling artist of 2008 with her second studio album, “Fearless.”
The 19-year-old star is also planning to hit the road this year on tour.
During her appearnance on “SNL” as the musical guest, Taylor also did a bit of acting in a skit about the closing of several Broadway shows, playing the iconic “Annie” in the skit.
