Country Stars Weigh In On Taylor Swift’s Success

Taylor Swift - CountryMusicIsLove

Just like Wynonna did prior to the CMA Awards, other country stars are coming out and voicing their opinion on Taylor Swift’s high level of success. Although Wynonna has nothing but respect for Taylor, she stated that Taylor’s career has been “too much, too soon.” Randy Travis agreed with Wynonna, telling People magazine “As a writer, she is a phenomenal talent. When you look at the body of work that she has written at the age when she came into this business, it’s remarkable. It really is. But do I think that entertainer of the year might have been a little early? In my opinion, yes, for whatever that’s worth.”

Husband and wife team Tim McGraw and Faith Hill have a different opinion. Faith revealed “I think she worked her tail off the last couple [of years] and she deserves to win.” Tim added “I’ve been doing this a long time and she’s got a better head on her shoulders than I do, so I don’t know how anybody could complain about that.”

So what does Ms. Swift herself think? Well, she’s split down the middle on the subject. Taylor told reporters backstage at the CMA Awards “I feel like it’s been fast but it’s also been a growth curve. I’ve watched the CMA Awards for as long as I can remember, and I got to come to my first one when I was 15. I know what it means to win a CMA Award. So I look at it from both ways.”
