Ledger-inquirer has an interview/article about Taylor that you can read here
Taylor Swift’s story is for anyone who ever thought heartache is only good for Kleenex manufacturers.
The curly-haired country songstress has found her musical niche singing about the ups and downs of love, penning songs with lyrics not too distant from an average teenager’s journal.
Some critics say Swift’s lyrics are trivial, even superficial. The teen counters by maintaining she writes what she knows.
“I can take that,” Swift said. “Because I’m not going to go write about babies and divorce.”
Anyway, Rolling Stone includes Fearless as one of their fall music preview. You can read about it here.
Working again with producer Nathan Chapman, Swift spent nearly eight months in Nashville studios recording 50-plus new songs, from which she picked Fearless’ 13 tracks. The banjo-plucked first single, “Love Story,” is a modern Romeo and Juliet tale, and the uptempo “You Belong With Me” is about watching her best friend date a snobby popular girl (“It’s a terrible movie that I lived a lot in high school,” she says). Colbie Caillat sings on “Breathe,” and Martina McBride’s kids lend finger snaps to “Hey Stephen,” an upright-bass-propelled groove inspired by a quickie crush. The one track that isn’t about the 18-year-old’s love life is “Change,” a spunky pop song inspired by her career: It begins with a frustrated star-to-be struggling to get her music out on a small label and ends with gorgeous, triumphant “hallelujah” choruses. “I finished the song after I won the CMA Horizon Award,” Swift says. “I’m happy the song got to end the way it ended.”
Okay, now I really can’t wait til 11.11!
