We love Taylor Swift. She’s a genius, and we all know it.
Sitting and listening to Folklore, one stand out song is Betty. I mean sure, it stood out originally because it’s how we discovered the name of Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively’s youngest daughter.
She previously explained on country radio the meaning of ‘betty’.
“[James] has lost the love of his life basically and doesn’t understand how to get it back. I think we all have these situations in our lives where we learn to really, really give a heartfelt apology for the first time,” Swift explained. “Everybody makes mistakes, everybody really messes up sometimes and this is a song that I wrote from the perspective of a 17-year-old boy. I’ve always loved that in music you can kinda slip into different identities and you can sing from other people’s perspectives. So that’s what I did on this one.”
She tweeted about performing on the 55th Annual ACM awards. It’s been seven years since Taylor last performed on the awards show.
Other performances that night will include Jimmie Allen, Kelsea Ballerini, Gabby Barrett, Kane Brown, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Luke Combs, Dan + Shay, Florida Georgia Line, Riley Green, Miranda Lambert, Tim McGraw, Maren Morris, Old Dominion and Thomas Rhett featuring Jon Pardi, Blake Shelton featuring Gwen Stefani, Tenille Townes, Carrie Underwood, Morgan Wallen, and Trisha Yearwood.
