Let me tell you what Taylor Swift is. She’s a kickass songwriter. That girl knows what she’s doing. And whatever she does for the rest of her life, she will always be a great songwriter and have my respect.

She always has such an intense production. Just an emotional, moving sort of extension of the music. The songs already mean so much. She’s a writer from such a real place, things you can really relate to … the kind of songs you can flip on and immediately connect with. But it’s where she takes it live that’s another step beyond. It’s one of the most entertaining shows I’ve ever seen. She always gives 110 percent, you know? One hundred percent is not enough.

You’ve got to love Taylor Swift and what she has done. I equate her with Bruce Springsteen. I wrote a piece about her in Country Weekly magazine a while back, about an older guy’s feelings for Taylor Swift. I can’t identify too much with some of the songs she sings — I’m 65 years old, for crying out loud — but do I love her? Yes, I do. I think she’s a great example for kids these days. Do I think she’s gonna get bigger and bigger and bigger? I’d say the sky is the limit for Taylor.
