Are you still a fan of Taylor Swift?

Taylor Swift
One of America's most well-known teen singers & performers - made famous from her self-written sweet love songs - and now holding a heavy shelf of Grammys and CMA awards.
This girl is always in the spotlight.  She's gorgeous; blonde curly locks, legs for days, and popping blue eyes.
Lately, some of the attention has sparked questions... how good is she?
She had an 'okay' performance at the Grammys.  I read somewhere that her agent said she had a hard time hearing herself, so she was out of tune.


I still love this girl.  I think she is a magical performer, a great song-writer, and you can't help but love her.  She's a dress wearing, cowboy-boot wearing, sweet-hearted girl. 
One of my all time favorites from her is 'Tim McGraw' which was one of her very first songs.  I think it may even be the song that made her famous. 
But... my question is, do you think she is a great singer??

Happy weekend!

i heart this girl as well!!
she is one talented little lady!!
i'd love to see her on concert some day ;)

I still really like her. It sounds as though she just gets a rough start and goes from there. She obviously can sing, just off tune. Maybe just a bad day?!

I love her...even my husband sings along to her songs! I think she's just as talented as any of the young stars out there. It's so hard to determine these days with all the editing and tricks they pull!

I believe it's not all about the singing. She is AMAZINGLY talented! Her singing is ok (sometimes good), but no... not the best. However, her song-writing is very clever and she can play the guitar like no one's business. :) She's an incredible entertainer and THAT'S why she's so popular - not because of her voice.

And I would LOVEEEEEE to see her in concert!

Is Taylor a great singer like Beyonce or Carrie? Hell No. Taylor is an average singer at best yet I'll rather hear her sing than any great vocalist. It's not the voice that makes a song is the words in it and how it resonates with you. I Love Taylor and don't care about HATERS!

I adore her. I don't think she's one of the best singers of all time, but she's talented and adorable and I love her to pieces!

Allison said...

I think she's very cute and talented. I'm not a die-hard fan or anything, but I don't dislike her.

I saw Faith Hill, Tim McGraw and Taylor Swift all in concert together around 2 or 3 years ago before Taylor was ever famous. I loved her voice then, and I still love her now!

For the longest time her albums were the soundtrack of my life! I heart her, always will!!

I admit I am a fan of some of her songs. I heard her when I was in college and she came to play at one of our spring concerts and I have to say that she wasn't a great live performer. But I'll still sing along to her songs :)

Great singer? No.

Amazing performer with a contagious personality who appears to be doing everything right in this business? Absolutely!

Love her.

She's super sweet and I like her, but I've never thought she was that good of a singer. I like her songs but her voice kind of bugs me...

Heather said...

I have never been a huge fan of hers. I don't think she is a good singer. I love that she a clean image. It's so refreshing from all the Britney/ Lindsey type girls.

Mrs. Dew said...

I think she's only good recorded. Mr Husband has seen her live and said she was TERRIBLE, just like at the Grammys. Oh well, I still listen!

Scrappy Girl said...

I love her voice. She has a unique sound and her songs are so FUN!

Shannon said...

I'm a fan of hers. I don't think she's the greatest singer out there, but I think that's okay. She's a songwriter and she's young. She'll grow into it. I'm really glad that there's a role model out there who is successful and talented, but isn't flashing her junk to the paparazzi and posing in Maxim, etc.; and I think it's nice for this next generation of girls to have someone like that that they can look up to. :)

Samantha said...

I think her cds are GREAT. She also has a refreshing attitude. But I've never seen her have a good performance live.

OceanDreams said...

I love Taylor Swift, she is such a lovely person inside and out and her voice is like an angel! :)

Shay said...

I love Taylor Swift. Regardless of the negative attention she gets

PinkSass said...

Love T-Swizzle, big time.

Shelley said...

I went to one of her concerts for her Fearless tour and I was really impressed with her stage presence. She is not only a beautiful person, but she has such a great gift for song writing and singing. I love her! You should check out this one project going on between her and these two guys at www.ahugfromtaylorswift.com

I love Taylor. I think she is adorable and a way better role model for young girls. I also enjoy her voice and her songs.

Jen said...

I am STILL a big fan of her! Is she a GREAT singer? No, probably not "great" but I do love her and I think she's really good!
