Just watched "Miss Americana" (Taylor Swift) [View all]

With the S.O..

Aside from the good natured ribbing from my partner -Taylor offered a kid fan a hug, "orangecrush wants a hug too! Don't you, orangecrush?" I really knew little about her, even that she was from my state.

I highly recommend watching.

She saw what happened to the Dixie Chicks, and was angry, but under heavy pressure to be quiet.

When it came to Marsha Blackburn, she spoke out, taking a huge risk.

And by speaking against Trump put a target on her back.

I was amazed at the depth of what I used to think of as a rather shallow pop singer.

I was quite mistaken.

Catch it if you can, it's worth it.
