Let me tell you what Taylor Swift is. She’s a kickass songwriter. That girl knows what she’s doing. And whatever she does for the rest of her life, she will always be a great songwriter and have my respect.
We’ve always watched her career, and it’s been absolutely amazing. From such a young age, the talent she’s possessed and the forthrightness she’s gone about her whole career with, I think she’s just exceptional and has been an amazing role model in our industry and in our genre. Just across the board, a total class act.
