The 22-year-old musician sang her ballad “Begin Again” off of her new hit record, Red.
“I’ve grown in the sense that I’ve allowed my influences to infiltrate my music more,” Taylor recently told USA Today. “Going into the studio with producers I had never worked with before was definitely a way of stretching musically. I knew I couldn’t make the same record twice. I mean, I could have, but I’m not going to. With my fans, I’ve established a level of trust, and part of that trust is that I really don’t want to bore them.”
