Taylor Swift officially said goodbye to country music last night at the ACM’s in Arlington, TX. Wait, hasn’t she said goodbye to country before? You would think that, but country music has had a hard time letting go and keeps wanting to get ‘back together’ with Swift because she is ratings gold! At only 25 years of age, she was presented with the ACM’s ‘Milestone Award’ for her achievement in country music. If it wasn’t already official she was over country she made it pretty clear in this speech:
“Somebody once told me that you truly see who a person is when you tell them something they don’t want to hear. You truly see who a person is when you give them news that they weren’t expecting,” Swift said to the thousands of screaming fans in the crowd at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. “And so to the country music community, when I told you that I had made a pop album and that I wanted to go explore other genres, you showed me who you are with the grace you accepted that with. I will never forget it.”
