So glad to see this thread active sadly I never checked hear in awhile since its always dead but ya'll all seemed to have a good time
Here is an interview with Alan Jackson in which he praises Taylor http://www.theboot.com/2012/04/17/alan- ... try-radio/
Taylor was recently hand-picked to sing Alan's award-winning tune, "Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)" at his induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, which the honoree insists was an easy decision. "She has been real supportive of my songwriting, real complimentary," Alan shares. "She's a great writer. I've heard some people sometimes pick at her about her writing, writing about teenage type things, but even that is written well."
The married father of three vividly recalls the first time he heard Taylor's music. "First song I ever heard of hers was 'Teardrops on My Guitar,'" he recounts. "I heard that song on the radio, and as soon as I heard it, I told my wife, 'I don't know who that is, but that's a great song, and it's going to be a big hit.'"
