I'm the kind of person who needs to feel like everything happens for a reason. When you date a guy and it goes badly, that's horrible. But if you can write a song about it, then it was worth it.
I know my flaws before other people point them out to me.
All I ever do is learn from my mistakes so I don't make the same ones again. Then I make new ones.
As your career grows, the list of things that makes you happy should not become smaller, it should become bigger.
Songs for me are like a message in a bottle. You send them out to the world, and maybe the person who you feel that way about will hear about it someday.
I spend a lot of time balancing between faith and disbelief.
I think fearless is having fears but jumping anyway. Taylor Swif
Live your life like you're 80 looking back on your teenager years. You know if your dad calls you at eight in the morning and asks if you want to go out for breakfast. As a teenager you're like no, I want to sleep. But as an eighty year old looking back you have that breakfast with your dad. It just
I think that personality traits that come through when somebody is really sincere is what makes them beautiful.
The way you walk, way you talk, way you say my name; it's beautiful, wonderful, don't you ever change.
Sometimes you see these people who are just soâ€”Godâ€”so affected by all of it, where ambition has taken precedence over happiness. But when I meet people who really embody this serenity of knowing that they have had an amazing lifeâ€”James Taylor, Kris Kristofferson, and Ethel Kennedy... They just
I've apparently been the victim of growing up, which apparently happens to all of us at one point or another. It's been going on for quite some time now, without me knowing it. I've found that growing up can mean a lot of things. For me, it doesn't mean I should become somebody completely new and st
I would love to sign on to do a movie if it was the right role and if it was the right script, because I would be taking time away from music to tell a big grand story, and spend all of my time and pouring all of my emotions into being someone else. So for me to do that, it would have to be a story
I second-guess and overthink and rethink every single thing that I do.
Every day was a struggle. Forget making plans for life - we were just trying to make it to next week.
(Talk about Kelly Pickler)"She's like a sister.People say we're such opposites, but that's what makes us such good friends. She's incredibly blunt. I love that about her. If some guy has said or done something to me she doesn't like, she'll grab my cell phone and say, 'I'm deleting his number.
If guys don't want me to write bad songs about them, they shouldn't do bad things.
I want someone to say, 'I love you and that's all I really know.' That's the girly girl in me.
I get so excited when a song I wrote that's very personal to me goes No. 1 and I look down and see people singing the words back to me.
I'm always afraid of failing. I have to quiet that fear if I'm going to get up in the morning.
I've found time can heal most anything and you just might find who you're supposed to be.
I'm very aware and very conscious of the path I chose in life, and very aware of the path I didn't choose.
There's room for role models who make mistakes.
Being excited about stuff on a daily basis, I'm so excited by it.
I started making choices based on what I wanted, and didnâ€™t feel like I needed to justify them. If I wanted to cut my hair, I did it. If I wanted to move to New York, I did it. If I wanted to take a spontaneous road trip, I did it. At 24 I decided that my life is enough for me, and I stopped looki
In recent years, you've probably read the articles about major recording artists who have decided to practically give their music away, for this promotion or that exclusive deal. My hope for the future, not just in the music industry, but in every young girl I meet...is that they all realize their w
Throughout all of the changes that have happened in my life, one of the priorities I've had is to never change the way I write songs and the reasons I write songs. I write songs to help me understand life a little more. I write songs to get past things that cause me pain. And I write songs because s
My mom and I have always been really close. Sheâ€™s always been the friend that was always there.
If I think too hard about a relationship, I'll talk myself out of it.
If I could go back I wouldn't change anything. If I was popular I would have never left my bubble. I wouldn't have ever tired to do anything different. I would have never become happy.
