Taylor Swift

Wow! Taylor is the most nominated artist for the all-genre American Music Awards this year. It is amazing to see someone who started out as a very young Country artist make her way up to becoming one of the top artists in every format. She was nominated in pretty much every genre except Rap/Hip-Hop/Soul/R&B and Alternative/Rock.

But she totally could have gotten a rap nomination for her duet with T-Pain. If they would have singled that she would have STILL gotten it to #1. 8-)

Kudos to Taylor for helping make Country "cool" again!

... or, is she crossing over to pop, and forsaking her "country" roots? Discuss.

I don't know if Taylor could ever forget her Country roots. I feel like I've heard her say before that she is first and foremost a Country artist. I don't know if she still has that same viewpoint today, but I would hope so. This is where she got her start - if it weren't for a ton of Country programmers taking a chance on a 14-year-old girl singing about Tim McGraw, she would not be where she is today.
