Anyone who doesn't like Taylor Swift, her music and Taylor on a personal level just can't be human. This beautiful, talented, self disciplined wonderful example of America's best is so good at her craft it's unbelievable at times. I can see her being with Country Music like Loretta, Dolly, Reba and all those country greats we hold so dear when my grand daughters have children to start listening to country music. Keep going and doing great things Taylor, keep your reputation clean while you live life like a fairy tale. I am a Taylor Swift FAN!
