After her clean break from a country sound on 1989, many Taylor Swift fans thought she’d left the genre for good. Over the last month, however, she’s written a new song for Little Big Town and appeared at the Country Music Association awards, stirring speculation about whether she’ll go country again. Little Big Town had some thoughts on the rumored crossover comeback, with one clear message: For Taylor Swift, the sky’s the limit.
“Taylor can do whatever she wants,” vocalist Kimberly Schlapman told Billboard.
“Taylor is just musical. I don’t think she’s defined by anything other than she is a songwriter and an unbelievable performer and entertainer and incredible businesswoman,” said guitarist and singer Philip Sweet. “She is all things music, and we have known her for a long time and when she sent us this song we loved it instantly and just the fact that she wrote it is special too. It’s fun to draw attention to just her songwriting. She is an incredible songwriter and we are the beneficiaries of that right now.”
