I would like to do a duet with Taylor Hanson, because I have loved Hanson since I was 8.

When I was a teenager, my biggest lessons came from Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, George Strait, Rascal Flatts and Brad Paisley. I learned so much from opening up for those artists, and it also taught me how to treat your opening acts and make them feel like they're part of a family, not just a tour.

Taylor Swift
Never never never compare yourself to the beautiful girls. There's always someone gorgeous who will make you feel like you're not. It's a total confidence buster!
Taylor Swift

There are times when you get frustrated, but the one thing you always focus on is treating people well. You just cannot storm off and freak out.

Taylor Swift
As supportive as my hometown is, in my high school, there are people who would probably walk up to me and punch me in the face. There's a select few that will never like me. They don't like what I stand for. They don't like somebody who stands for being sober, who stands for anything happy. They're going to be negative no matter what.
Taylor Swift

We should love, not fall in love, because everything that falls, gets broken.

Taylor Swift
I don't think there's an option for me to fall in love slowly or at medium speed. I either do, or I don't.
Taylor Swift

As you experience love and relationships, you start to realize that love tends to end in a very painful goodbye.

Taylor Swift
Unique and different is the new generation of beautiful… You dont have to be like everybody else. In fact I don’t think you should.
Taylor Swift

It was an actual Christmas tree farm. We had, like, 15 acres. It was really fun as a kid. I also spent my summers at the Jersey Shore, on the bay in Stone Harbor. I walked everywhere barefoot. It was just the most amazing, magical way to grow up.

Taylor Swift
'Mean' is a song I wrote about somebody who wrote things that were so mean so many times that it would ruin my day. Then it would ruin the next day. And it would level me so many times, I just felt like I was being hit in the face every time this person would take to their computer.
