I’m not pleased.
Big Machine Records, home of new sensation Taylor Swift, has apparently decided to market Trisha Yearwood in a similar manner.
That’s right, Trisha Yearwood. The most gifted vocalist of her generation has released her second single from her latest album, “This is Me You’re Talking To.” A heartfelt, mature ballad. Country music for post-pubescents, if you will.
So why does such a song have to be launched with this visual?
Why take a beautiful woman like this and doll her up to look like an overrated teenage sensation? All she’d need is to line her eyes with glitter and miss some easy notes, and she truly would be the middle-aged Taylor Swift.
Big Machine has a fantastic album to work with, recorded by a singer for the ages. and this is the best they can come up with to market it?
