13 Best Taylor Swift Covers, From Ryan Adams to Jimmy Eat World
Pop and indie world alike have gone positively mad over Ryan Adams' recent reinterpretation of Taylor Swift's chart-dominating 1989. But did you know a whole bunch of other pop stars have done some pretty great covers of Taylor's hits too?
Before the singer-songwriter went full-on pop with her latest studio album, she was churning out dozens of smashes at country radio that made her a certified superstar. (Remember those days?) In the span of her ever-evolving career, plenty of popular acts have put their own spin on her tracks, from YouTube sensation Jasmine Thompson's "Everything Had Changed" to Karmin's "Mine" to Jimmy Eat World's "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together."
