Taylor Swift Crossing Over
Taylor Swift teamed up with rock legends Def Leppard last night at the Roy Acuff Theater in Nashville to tape an installment of CMT Crossroads. Before the show, the group joined Taylor for a press conference to talk about the pairing that Swift pursued for over a year. According to Taylor, country music will always be her home, but working with Def Leppard has been awesome: "I've always been so proud to be a country artist and to live in Nashville and be able to be a part of this incredible town and the music that comes out of it. And, you know, as far as the whole crossover thing, I'd really rather look at it as spillover. I live in Nashville; I wear cowboy boots when I perform. I'm just really lucky to have more stations playing my music now. And it's just really cool to be able to pair up with my favorite rock band and get to do a show." The CMT Crossroads episode featuring Taylor and Def Leppard will air on November 7.
