I'm sorry, but... "If I Die Young," really? I mean, I like The Band Perry just fine - they're from an hour away (and Kenny Chesney from even closer) and are fun to listen to, but... they're no less fluffy than Taylor overall. The Nashville Sound is good for what it is, but except for a little more twang and a less electric sound some of that is just as poppy as Swift's stuff. Where's the alcoholism, the economic misery, the death and blood, the drugs, the violence?
Or, to give some better examples, we'll start with Taylor herself and a better Brad Paisley example.
