Buffalo News talked to Taylor about her Grammy nominations, the success of Red, and her process for the fifth album. Read more below to see the full interview, and make sure to stay tuned here tonight to find out if she wins any of her Grammy nominations!
Taylor Swift knows how long an album’s journey can be … and how big the payoff can be.
The singing-songwriting superstar introduced “Red” in October 2012, and many of the quadruple-platinum-selling release’s songs became chart hits, often crossing between multiple genres. Its bids for both album of the year and country album are among Swift’s four nominations at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards, which CBS televises from Los Angeles’ Staples Center at 8 tonight.
Already an owner of seven Grammys – including album of the year and country album for “Fearless” – Swift also is in the running for best country song of the year (for the “Red” cut “Begin Again”) and best country duo or group performance (with Tim McGraw and Keith Urban, for “Highway Don’t Care”).
In an interview for this article, Swift spoke about her process with “Red” and also about her generally stellar past year.
