I agree about the limitations of Taylor. I have defended her over the years, mainly because she is fairly mild and doesn't set a horrible image with drinking, sex, etc. for the younger kids. I get that. And some of her little songs are sweet. I do think that her success was money driven and once that got going, Nashville had to support her. There were millions of dollars at stake. Just like it's portrayed on the show.
Taylor will be 23 years old in December. I think it's old enough to graduate the music up a little. She doesn't need the money, so I'm not sure why she's stuck in that tween level with her music. Have you heard her latest song entitled "We Are Never, Never, Getting Back Together?" She thinks it's GREAT? I saw her introduce it and she does. My 12 year-old niece could have written it. Very odd IMO.
