2020 Latecomers: Taylor Swift

I have a lot of time for Taylor Swift, but it's fair to say that when she stepped away from her country roots a few years back to become one of the biggest pop stars in the world, I wished her well and said bon voyage. She's made some great pop songs since then - arguably some of the best of her generation - but as I'm way beyond that generation, I felt like I couldn't really be a part of her crowd anymore.

Last year, she surprised everyone by hooking up with Bon Iver and members of The National (among others) to release two "back to her roots" albums of stripped back country storytelling, Folklore and Evermore. I'm not going to add much to the swathes of column inches devoted to those records other than to say I like them.

A lot.


  1. Love this song and Taylor is going to be around for a long time. A very talented lady. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Beautiful song. Thank God I'm not a teenager anymore...

    1. You are right there - They get a bad rep but I wouldn’t want to be a teenager in the 21st century.
