Any Taylor Swift Fans?

Recommended Posts

First of all, I REALLY like her public image. Taylor Swift

comes across as very beautiful, gracious and wholesome.

Besides her musical talents, she has surrounded herself

with brilliant marketing and business advisors. Her success

is nothing short of miraculous. But...

What does Taylor Swift have to do with Country Music? She is

the reigning Entertainer Of The Year and is the leading contender

for this year's award. Somebody please enlighten me. Post the name

of the song or songs by Ms. Swift that you consider "Country".

anything from her first album I would consider country. She has some good ones on there, " Tim Mcgraw" "Teardrops on my guitar" come to mind.

I am a big fan of both her old stuff and her new stuff. My kids love her too so and go around singing her songs all day long. I hope she continues being a good role model for the younger generations.

To much fairy tale in her songs for me, then the new song she has out drives me nutt's, if she wants to sing pop songs then be a pop singer.

Merle Haggard, Johnny Paycheck, Waylon Jennings, Goerge Jones, Johnny Cash, Conway Twitty, Willie Nelson, Allan Jackson, Hank Williams Jr and Sr. just to name a few, newer artist's come to mind as well, but regardless, Country needs to stay country.

Good list no doubt - but out of the long list of great ones - is there a single female artist you do like ?

I can't think of a single artist, there are a ton, Patsy Kline, Loretta Lynn, Dollie, Sarah Evans, Tanya Tucker, Tammy, Patty Loveless, the list is big, but if I had to pick one artist she would definatly be Martina McBride, that girl has got a gift !!!

Carrie comes really close but my vote would still be Martina.

You don't need a southern accent to sing country songs.

Keith Urban, Olivia Newton John, Ann Murray come to mind.

I have to first say I am not a Taylor Swift fan, but my take on country music is that the lines between a lot of music are becoming less and less defined. I heard a country song not long ago...Trace Adkins maybe?...where the singer was actually talking ...er, rapping...

I think much of todays country is really more like what used to known as "pop"

Just my opinion.

Just heard her song on the CMA's. Country? Hardly!

Conversely, I just heard "mmmmm motorboatin" by Little Big Town. Good Stuff!

I'm a country fan, don't like Taylor. I admire her marketing prowess, but nothing about her singing is what I would consider "talent". She's like fingernails on a chalkboard to me.

Somebody said something about her "old stuff" vs. "new stuff"??? I didn't know there was such a thing. It's all the same to me. ....um especially since she hasn't been around long enough to have "old stuff". LOL!

If you like her, that's fine by me. But she's just not my bag of tea.

Like a lot of newer country artist I don't consider her stuff to be country music. Even some of the folks that have been around for a long time have started to do more songs that I think fit more into the Pop genre than country. I'm not a fan of hers but she is a talented singer and has done a great job marketing herself and her music.

NOT a fan of Taylor, not country... BTW, what happened to Faith??? She looked like a train wreck!!! I get the braces thing, but, have a slice of pizza and a doughnut for heavens sake... I always thought she was beautiful but it looks as if the gelcoat is getting a bit oxidized.......... Carrie looked amazing!

Also, I didn't see or hear anything from Jamey Johnson??? That guy is a total throwback and I think his music is fantastic

Trace Adkins Rapping???? Wont happen at least I hope the he## not LOL !!

The artist you have in mind is Jason Aldean, I don't care for it either, he has some really good stuff though.

Was that the first time you have heard that song?

They have played that song to death over here in Va. ....it still gets me groovin lol !!

I've said it before, here in this forum (I think), she's not very good. I tried to listen last night to give her (and RW) the benefit of another listen. Couldn't finish. Pleasant to look at I guess (but aren't most of them) not to listen to.
