It’s been a minute since we’ve said this: TAYLOR SWIFT is sitting at the top of the “Billboard“ Hot Country Songs chart. And it’s thanks to “Love Story (Taylor’s Version)”, which is a re-recording of her 2008 song, “Love Story”.
This part’s ALSO significant. Both versions reached Number One on that chart, which makes her only the second person to accomplish that. Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You” did it in 1974, and her re-recording topped it again in 1982.
Now, in case you haven’t been following this, we should double back on why Taylor re-did the song. She’s in the process of re-recording a lot of her early albums because she’s mad at a guy named Scooter Braun who bought the rights to them.
“Love Story” was on her 2008 album “Fearless”. Her new version of that album is called, “Fearless (Taylor’s Version)”, and it’s coming out April 9th.
