Taylor Swift’s Song “Betty” Is Already a Country Hit

Time to welcome TAYLOR SWIFT back to country.  Her song “Betty” has debuted at Number Six on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart . . . and Number One on their Country Streaming Songs chart.

There’s a chance everybody loves it just because it’s Taylor, but the song does sound familiar.  CMT says the high school theme makes it feel like a sequel to her 2009 hit “Fifteen”.  Taylor might agree with that.  Here’s how she describes it.

Quote, “[It’s] about a 17-year-old named James learning to apologize, because he lost the love of his life and doesn’t understand how to get it back.  We all have these situations where we learn to really, really give a heartfelt apology for the first time.

“Everybody really messes up sometimes, and this is a song that I wrote from the perspective of a 17-year-old boy.  And I always loved that in music you can kind of slip into different identities and you can sing from other people’s perspectives.”
