No one does country music like new sensation, Taylor Swift, no matter if it's a slow ballad or a tail-shaking boot stomping boogie! But the selections on her latest, "The Best Of Country" is leaving several people shaking their heads.
Swift told reporters Monday, "I thought a lot about which songs to put on this double album and I came up with these", stated Swift. "Some I chose for their message, some for their history and some for my simply loving to sing them."
"Get Off the Table, Mabel (the $2 Is For The Beer)" is one my daddy used to sing when I was a little girl. It really brings back memories. " I Bought the Shoes that Just Walked Out On Me" was my first karaoke performance."
Other tear-jerkers that Swift gets choked up just talking about are, "How Can I Get Over You If You Won't Get Out From Under Me?", "I Went Back To My Fourth Wife For The Third Time And Gave Her A Second Chance To Make A First Class Fool Out Of Me", "It's Hard To Kiss The Lips At Night That Chew Your Ass Out All Day Long " and "Saddle Up The Stove, Ma, I'm Riding The Range Tonight".
"I also do that classic by Wynonna Judd, " If I Had My Life To Live Over, I'd Live Over A Delicatessen". That one always makes me cry because, doggone it, fat people have feelings too."
Finishing the Golden Oldie set will be, "I Thought She Was Out Jogging, But She Was Running Around On Me", "If The Phone Don't Ring, It's Me Not Calling You Up", "Little Jimmy Dicken's "I Got In At 2 With A 10 And Woke Up At 10 With A 2", Conway's "I Kissed Her On The Lips, And Left Her Behind For You" Waylon Jenning's classic "Out Of My Head And Back In My Bed, At The Asylum" and one of my all-time favorites, Bluegrass great Bill Monroe's "If I Can't Be Number One In Your Life, Then A Big Old Number Two On You!"
Look for it to be out in April!
