taylor is so so so smart and intelligent i’m really excited to see what else she does with her career as far as other projects go because yes she can sing/write/put on big shows but gosh she’s got such a good head on her shoulders even if she does stop making music/performing she won’t lose the experiences or anything she’s learned and i have a good feeling she’s going to put that towards something like maybe a book or something
I came to Nashville when I was 13 and got a demo record deal because I had been trying for so many years and I had been performing anywhere I could and knocking on doors and writing songs. And so I walked in with my guitar into the record label, we had set up an appointment because I had met some people who had you know set it out for me. And I sat down and I played a bunch of songs so that’s how I got a record deal when I was 13, that eventually ended up falling through and I ended up signing to another company Big Machine Records which is my current record label. But in between that time I went to all the publishing companies and set up meetings because those are the ones in charge of your songwriting and the songs and pitching to other artists and basically a lot to do with your songwriting. So I walked in and just played my music for these people, that’s how I got a lot of you know either record deal and publishing deal, just walking in with my guitar, opening up the case pulling it out and playing.
