[Watch] Taylor Swift Duets With Alison Krauss @ 2013 Country Music Association Awards

Taylor Swift performed a beautiful and stripped back version of Red at the Country Music Awards 2013.What made the performance extra special- for her I'm sure more than anyone else- was who she was joined on stage by: Alison Krauss and Vince Gill.

T-Swift may get slated by many for her voice (which was near enough perfect here) and the content of her lyrics, but she shouldn't care when her own idols are willing to get up on stage and essentially play her backing group. It speaks volumes to the impact she's had on the scene in such a short time, and at such a young age.

The whole performance was gorgeous!

[Probably Never Heard] Christmas Songs

Are you tired of hearing the same Christmas songs every year on the radio? Well if you are (actually even if you're not), here are two songs that are sure to bring some variety to your Yuletide playlist ! Suggested by regular reader "Opie", these two little gems offer a different kind of Christmas record. So don't expect any jingling bells, choir of Children, or overt festivity, because there ain't any to be found here!

Recently DD (DivaDevotee) suggested I might want to write a bit about "acoustic" music for this blog. Flattering as that suggestion was, it was also a daunting one.
