TMG/AEG Live will produce the upcoming Taylor Swift tour, set to begin in early 2009 and hit secondary markets, Billboard.biz has learned. While Swift has performed headlining shows, it's her first tour as a headliner. Houston-based TMG/AEG Live president Louis Messina also produces tours and concerts by Kenny Chesney, George Strait and Sugarland. Swift is booked by the William Morris Agency.

Swift's sophomore album, "Fearless," is due Nov. 11 on Big Machine Records.
