Taylor Swift - Tim McGraw

01 October Critic Jonni 0 Comments

Taylor Swift's debut music video and single becomes my revisit this week. As a true swiftie, I do miss her country music, however I still love how far she has come and her most recent albums are my favourites. I have not seen this video before today, and it's a typical country debut video, nothing I didn't expect and no surprises, Taylor Swift has definitely upped her game since this,

Taylor Swift is an international superstar, and if you haven't heard of her, please curl back under your rock. This song is crisp, clear and engaging, just Taylor Swift and her guitar, and compared to "Blank Space" really proves how her musical journey has evolved. Written by Taylor Swift and Liz Rose, it was never officially released in the UK, much like her most recent singles as well as many other US country artist's singles. The song is about Drew Dunlap, who was her boyfriend at the time and he was leaving for college and she wanted to capture the emotion of losing him into a song. It's catchy just like all the other songs she has sung, and filled with such emotion!

Directed by Trey Fanjoy, the video narrates a relationship between Taylor Swift and this guy, Johnny, played by Clayton Collins. They do things together, but mainly spend time together, and you can tell they really really like each other, definitely the point what Carly Rae Jepsen is singing about in "I Really Like You".

I like the starry night sky watching. That is something I'd really like to do, but the UK is just too cold on a night out. I also don't hold a boyfriend long enough to arrange such a thing.

There is a slight performance side, which as usual shows Taylor Swift's emotional side, yet it looks so effortless here that the song has totally taken over.
