Taylor Swift will release her new album, Red, on Monday, and while some people might try to critique her songs or her songwriting, one guy who is a fan is Alan Jackson.  Alan has been a fan of Taylor’s songwriting from the beginning. He says, “The first song of hers I heard was that “Teardrops on My Guitar,” and when I heard that song on the radio, just as soon as I heard it, it was just one of those, I told my wife, ‘I don’t know who that is, but that’s a great song and it’s gonna be a big hit.’”  Even though they don’t write about the same things, for the most part, Alan says, “I think she’s a great writer.  I’ve heard some people or read where people sometimes pick at her about her writing because she’s writing about things that are teenage-type things, but even at that, they’re written well.”
