-Taylor Swift updated her Official Blog yesterday. Check out the entry below:
This has been such an amazing week. I’m HOME for a few days, recording radio specials for the album launch, photo shoots, and preparing for the Def Leppard Crossroads I’m shooting with CMT!! Hearing my song on Grey’s Anatomy was absolutely the coolest thing that has ever happened to me. (Or definitely somewhere in my top 5 of coolest things) I put up a video blog about it. So this week, we’re in “final approval mode” for the album. You know, all the emails that say in the subject lines “Fearless album booklet: FINAL APPROVAL” or “CD design: FINAL APPROVAL”. So I’m doing a lot of approving. And then they send it to the magical CD maker people and they make all the CDs just in time for November 11. Actually, it’s called the distribution branch, but I prefer “the magical CD maker people”. One of the things I’m the most excited about is the image that’s going to be on the physical CD. It’s probably my favorite, and I can’t wait for you to see it. I’m still wayyy obsessed with getting everything ready for the album coming out. This album is everything to me. I’m really happy that I got to say everything I wanted to on this album. I got to put 13 songs on it! All the stories from these past 2 years..I can’t wait for you to hear them! In other news…….
I’m so excited, because Kellie Pickler’s new album is out!! I love her. She’s like a sister to me, and her album is amazing. There’s a song on the album called “The Best Days of Your Life” that we actually wrote together when we were out on the Brad Paisley tour!! I sang the background vocals and Kellie nailed this song. This song came to be after a show. Kellie came storming onto my bus, fuming about something one of her ex boyfriends did. She was ranting and raving and going on and on about it, and I just said “Kellie, you’re saying lyrics right now. The things you’re saying are a song. Let’s go write it.” And so we went into the back of my tour bus and wrote this song in about 30 minutes. I’m so proud to have co-written a song on her record. I think you’ll really love the album, especially “Somebody to Love Me”. That’s a really beautiful song. I hope you all get a chance to hear “The Best Days of Your Life”, and download it on iTunes! Because maybe, if you buy it on iTunes, her label will pick it as the next single. And if it gets picked to be the next single, I wouldn’t stop smiling for about a week. Yeah, I’m gonna go ahead and estimate that it would be a full week of optimism and smiling and other various ways of spreading joy. So go check it out! (please)
