Taylor Swift is back with a sweet love song.
The first couple times I heard the song I wasn’t quite sure the direction the song was going to take. My first thought – partly based on the melody and the tone – was that the story was about how a boy and girl grew apart over the years. They once were in love and everything to each other and as time went by everything changed.
But now I think I realize it’s about how friends can become more than friends. That’s a better sentiment for a song. It’s a true country love song.
Everything Has Changed – Taylor Swift
So now we know that the song is about love and falling in love with your long time best friend. Taylor does a great job on it like always. She has the knack for creating great melodies. Every one of her songs is full of hooks and catchy little bits that fans can sing along with.
It’s a great song in that regard.
And she’s come out with another duet. This time it’s with Ed Sheeran. I have to admit I didn’t really know who he was. I thought he was in a boy band, but he’s an accomplished solo artist that has written songs for other artists.
I think it was a great choice for a duet partner. That kid has some talent. I’ve been listening to some of his other songs.
It’s been a big couple years for Taylor. All of her songs are shooting to the top of the charts. She’s coming off a huge hit with Tim McGraw. Somehow she’s able to keep her feet on both sides of pop and country.
She’s one of the best we have in country. Hopefully we continue to embrace her music.
