Taylor Swift's comments on her music
in an interview with the Wall Street Journal: Swift says the country genre still “feels like home” but she’s always been eager to push the boundaries. Says Swift: “I leave the genre labeling to other people. I really do. If I were to think too hard about it, that would stifle you creatively. If you think too hard about who other people want you to be as an artist, it stops you from being who you want to be as an artist.”
“I think if you sit there and think I have to put this instrument on this song because if I don’t people will think that I’m in a different genre, then I think that is possibly overthinking what you do. I try to address every single song and approach every single song from an emotional place. What did that feeling sound like in my head? What did it sound like to feel that way? And that doesn’t necessarily always involve the same instruments.” By: Taylor Jones Taylor Swift Is NOT Country Anymore Now: Hipster Now: Drop the bass Instruments in Traditional Country Music: Guitar
