The “No Such Thing” musician chatted with Access Hollywood on his admiration for the 19-year-old Nashville princess. John shared, “Taylor Swift is the last person to know she’s Taylor Swift, which I think is totally sweet. Itâ€™s almost like Taylor Swift is like a character in a movie about a small town girl who has her dreams come true and what any small time girl would do when their dreams come true is to freak out.”
He continued, “I still like it that she freaks out, but pretty soon she’s gonna have to stop because it’s sort of like, ‘You’re that good. You’re that good. You might have to go to therapy and have someone else tell you you’re that good.’ So it’s great to have someone who’s hugely talented and still is able to receive the pleasure in all moments.”
John and Taylor join their musical talents together on his new record. The duo collaborated on “Half of My Heart,” off his new album, Battle Studies. “I donâ€™t normally make records to share tracks with people…I consider her a friend. I think sheâ€™s a really remarkable person and itâ€™ll be nice to have her name on the record for the rest of my life,” John shared.
