I've seen the explicit warnings on a couple of songs too, including a couple by Miranda Lambert. It's a shame people think that enhances their songs. no.gif

Regarding Taylor Swift, she isn't pretending this is country - she is outright stating this is a pop album. Country radio needs to let her go. The video is cute.

I'm happy for Taylor. Pop is where she was meant to be.

I choose to take it as a good sign for country music too. I'm hoping it's getting harder to ride the fence between pop and country or rock and country. Maybe country music is really on the verge of returning to being COUNTRY music.

Taylor is right at home in pop, where she belongs! I agree country radio has to let her go.

Ann - I know you asked about the dogs on the other thread but I'll answer here.

Apparently, there is a virus going thru the dogs here. With the younger ones, I am just nursing them thru and was hoping it wouldn't hit Rory or Alex considering their debilitated state. Unfortunately, Alex spiked a high fever and was throwing up water/flem, etc. so I was concerned about dehydration. So, I took him in for sub-q fluids and an injectible to try to quickly halt the vomiting. Also got some antibiotics for him. I'm still on high alert for all of them, but I hope we are thru the worst of it. I love having multiple dogs, but when a virus hits, it can be tough.



What a struggle shocked.gif Hoping they all recover quickly and completely wub.gif

To me Blake's song is country... it is OK not going to be my favorite Blake song...at least it is not pop, rock or rap! whistling.gif

Taylor's song is what I would consider good pop music... I like the song OK have a feeling Sami is going to love it! Country Let Her Go!!! I can't see that she is even making a miniscule effort on this one to sell it as country.

I have the DVR set to record George's concert. An album!!! w00t.gif I know what I will be giving my sister-in-law for Christmas!!!!

So what is wrong with this pic...Taylor announces she's putting out a pop song to radio and Nash Ny play it and WSIX in Nashville is playing it a lot and even added the song to thumbs up request....there is no hope left for country radio......this is sooooo unfair to legit country artist trying to get radio play whether it be Scotty or anyone else....I guess we will see adds on Monday for Taylor's song ...will sure give a clue about certain stations...

That's pretty bad when Taylor herself pretty much said to Country not to play it and they are doing it anyway. Country radio is like a dumped ex that is so pathetic all they go to do is stalk the one that dumped them. Sad and creepy at the same time. wacko.gif

Remember when I said only Garth could pull off that single release of Tacoma? That song would have been DOA if any other artist released something like that to radio today. Well apparently even Garth couldn't put that one off. It's DBA (Dead Before Arrival). haha.gif He's going with another single for his first releases per sources on twitter this morning. stuart.gif

Apparently it's called "People Loving People" and should be out in a week or 2. Yikes to FI for that!!! Anyway just by the title it sounds like it could be "We Shall Be Free 2.0"

Interesting article below about Taylor's new album. Picture didn't move over so please ignore that line.

Music
Taylor Swift, Rule Follower, Releases 1989 in Completely Expected Way
By Claire Suddath August 20, 2014


Photograph by ChinaFotoPress via Getty Images
If you want to understand how the music industry works, all you have to do is follow Taylor Swift. Justin Bieber is poised for an implosion. Beyoncé is a little too powerful—few artists can drop a new album with absolutely no promotional campaign, price it at $15.99, and sell 830,000 copies in the first weekend. But Swift is the sort of megastar who always plays by the rules. She releases one album every other fall and promotes it with a big arena tour; the one for her last album, 2012’s Red, lasted seven months. She endorses Diet Coke (KO) and Keds (WWW). Her love songs are so idealized that she actually wrote one about Romeo and Juliet.

Taylor Swift does not try something new until she knows that it will work—and that she can do it right.

Over the last few weeks, Swift had been posting “clues” on her Instagram (FB) account about an announcement she’d make on Aug. 18. Fans knew another album was in the works, and they correctly guessed that Aug. 18 wouldn’t be its release date but the day she announced the release date. “Taylor Swift is dropping the least subtle clues ever about her new album,” observed Cosmopolitan UK. And just to make doubly sure that everyone knew what was happening, last week Swift announced her upcoming announcement on the most traditional platform of them all, The Tonight Show.

The new album, 1989, has 13 tracks and a lead single, Shake It Off, which Swift premiered with fanfare on—that’s right—Aug. 18. The full album will come out in October, just like her previous albums. A “deluxe” version will include bonus tracks. Absolutely none of this is surprising. Swift is a safe, solid pop star embarking on a pretty traditional album campaign that’s been slightly updated (Instagram clues, a Yahoo! (YHOO) stream, a Skype (MSFT) chat) to conform to the technological times.

As one of the top-selling music acts around, Swift could be much more experimental if she wanted to. She could go full-on Beyoncé and abandon all promotion. She could drop the album, literally, from the sky. Or, more apropos to her public persona, she could personally deliver every copy nestled in a picnic basket next to a kitten.

But Taylor Swift doesn’t play like that. She does things smoothly and cleanly so that they turn out as shiny and perfect as her red lipstick. Red was produced by Swedish hit-making machines Max Martin and Johan “Shellback” Schuster and is being marketed with the help of corporate sponsors Target (TGT) and Walgreens (WAG). Shellback and Martin are back for 1989, which is being promoted with concert ticket giveaways and meet-and-greets

Over the next few months, Swift will start making the appropriate TV appearances and giving another set of charmingly candid interviews. Much will be made about how 1989 is Swift’s official switch from country pop to regular pop, even though her transformation has been going on, little by little, for years. That’s how Taylor Swift works. It’s safe. And it works every time.
