20 Of Taylor Swift’s Best Songs: Decoded
Did you know Taylor won a Country Music Award in 2017, long after she made her full transition into pop music? Tay wrote Little Big Town‘s “Better Man,” and its one of her most mature, thoughtful works. “Better Man” may prove to be her magnum opus, even if it was performed by Little Big Town, whose harmonies made Taylor think of them for the track. While a tweet went around saying the song was written in 2010, the source of that rumor has since said they were confusing it with another song (possibly “Babe,” the Sugarland song originally meant for Red). Elle did a full investigation pointing towards the song being about Calvin Harris and matching certain lyrics with news items from their relationship, and we’re inclined to agree.
