PHOTO: Iowa DOT Might’ve Been A Bigger Swiftie Than You
Taylor Swift is back on everyone's radars again. The country singer turned pop icon has announced that she will be making a return to country music...kind of. Swift made an appearance on Good Morning America Thursday morning to say that she re-recorded her 'Fearless' album and will be releasing it soon.
On Friday at midnight she will even release the new version of her mega country hit "Love Story" for everyone to listen to.
Swift also said that there are 26 songs on the album. So, maybe more country Taylor tracks?
"My version of Fearless will have 26 songs on it because I’ve decided to add songs from the vault, which are songs that almost made the original Fearless album. I’ve now gone back and recorded those, so that everybody will be able to hear, not only the songs that made the album but the songs that almost made it. The full picture."
The fans of Taylor Swift went crazy online Thursday morning, but the biggest Swiftie might've been the Iowa Department of Transportation.....
At least they were a few years ago.
In 2017, Taylor Swift released 'Reputation' which was a complete transformation from the country girl we knew.
One of the tracks that everyone was talking about was Look What You Made Me Do. The line that sort of went viral on the internet was, "I'm sorry. The old Taylor can't come to the phone right now. Why? Because she's dead."
Well, Iowa DOT used these lyrics to try and deter people from texting and driving.
The sign cleverly says, "Old Taylor can't come to the phone...she's driving."
This clever reference in the sign was a warning due to the nearly 250 traffic deaths at that time that year.
Many Iowans and traffic goers saw the sign and thought it was a witty way to deter people from texting and driving...maybe not from taking photos and driving.
