The rumors are true. Taylor Swift is no longer country. It can be argued that she never really was country but she had a fan base and a following of country music fans. With this new release Shake it Off from her new CD 1989, its’ obvious that she has gone to the pop genre. This is good for her, great in fact. She is happier, she wanted to do this but to those of us who loved her as a country artist, bittersweet. There are some people who will continue to purchase her CDs and follow her but to those of us who long for and seek the real country sound, we will just listen to updates on the news.
