"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."

— John Rich from Big and Rich on Taylor (x)

"We’ve always watched her career, and it’s been absolutely amazing. From such a young age, the talent she’s possessed and the forthrightness she’s gone about her whole career with, I think she’s just exceptional and has been an amazing role model in our industry and in our genre. Just across the board, a total class act."

— Big Kenny from Big and Rich on Taylor Swift (x)

"I respect her as an artist. She writes most of her music, and she deals with the critics and everybody. She’s just a sweet person, and the way she treats her fans is really an inspiration to me and how I want to treat my fans. She’s very involved and, I mean, look at her shows. … I just think she’s a great role model for kids. I think girls that look up to her are looking up to a good girl, and she’s an amazing artist."

— Cole Swindell on Taylor Swift (x)

"My God, she’s huge now. Nobody really knew who Taylor was at that time, and it was me and her and Ronnie Milsap. It was a great package. I don’t know how many people she played for before then, but it was a little different for her, especially going with the round stage because it’s a little different anyway. But, man, she took to it like a duck to water. I mean, it was just a couple of nights before she had it down, and she’s a great entertainer. I love Taylor."

I love this era. I love that it’s cool to be yourself, I love that Taylor’s sticking up for herself and for others. I love the advice she’s giving to fans that we can all apply to our lives. I can’t wait for the album and to see what kind of music and themes it incorporates. I feel like this era is gonna provide so much positivity and growth and I hope that everyone continues to take to heart and learn more and more about life and how to treat each other better because that’s what’s so important and what’s going to continue to make the world a better place. We can’t change others or their behavior, but we can decide how we are gonna treat people. Forgiveness and moving on is so healthy. I hope everyone finds a way to come together and be there for people. Life won’t always give us what we want, it won’t always be fair, but choosing to see the positives we do have is a much more pleasant way to go through life. You’ll find yourself being so much happier letting things go than hanging on to them. Everyone has something to offer.

"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."

Taylor Swift Joins The Voice as a Season Seven Advisor

The “Shake It Off” singer, 24, will be joining the upcoming seventh season of the NBC competition show as an advisor. A source tells Us that Swift will serve in the same capacity that Coldplay singer Chris Martin aided the show in its sixth season, advising contestants across all four teams. 

Swift will be working with veterans Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, as well as new coaches Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams, who were added to the lineup for the upcoming season. 

"Taylor was an absolute pleasure to work with," a source tells Us of Swift’s contribution to The Voice. “She had great feedback for all the contestants. She made for an amazing mentor.” 

Swift, who previously performed on the fourth season of The Voice, joins previously announced advisors Stevie Wonder (who is working with Levine), Gavin Rossdale (working with his wife Stefani), Little Big Town (working with Shelton), and Alicia Keys (working with Williams). 

The next season of The Voice kicks off on Sept. 22, one month before the scheduled release of Swift’s upcoming fifth studio album 1989. Led by the hit single “Shake It Off,” 1989 will hit stores on Oct. 27. (x)
