TAYLOR COUNTDOWN: 5 Days
Fine. Go ahead. Joke about how this 25 year-old “adult” adores a tweeny country-pop singer. Ha ha.
Sure, like I said, I was a foot taller than all the other Taylor Swift fans in West Virginia. I’m hoping the demographic is slightly more vertically developed this time around. But even if they’re troll-sized again, I’ll stand proud among them. Taylor Swift’s talent has captured my heart.
This week, I’ll write about Taylor as songwriter and consider her/her work in relation to her contemporary peers and our old time faves, like Loretta Lynn.
Today, Taylor’s talented because she plays the ukulele. (And because she’s sweet.)
Check out title track “Fearless” on ukulele below.
Don’t you love her little accent? Her storytelling? Her ability to circumvent legal contracts by playing a uke instead of a guitar*?
Me too. Bring on the trolls.
*Aren’t the other folks up there playing guitar? On the same song? Wily one, that Taylor Swift.
