Fearless Baby: Taylor Swift's Baby Taylor Guitar

Image
There are no "teardrops" on this guitar, because Taylor Swift has created a special gift of love for her legion of fans. Swift has joined forces with one of the world's finest guitar manufacturers to create The Taylor Swift Baby Taylor Guitar. And it is a stunner.

Inspired by memories of writing songs on her Baby Taylor, country pop sensation Taylor Swift collaborated with Taylor Guitars to design a signature Baby Taylor model. The Taylor Swift Baby Taylor (TSBT) features standard Baby Taylor specs, embellished by Swift's custom, screen-printed rosette design.

At three-quarters the size of Taylor Guitar's standard dreadnought, and with a slim 1 11/16-inch neck and a comfortable, compact shape, the guitar is just right for both the littlest player’s hands and anyone who likes to pick up and play on the go. Like the original Baby Taylor, the TSBT is crafted from sapele laminate back and sides and a solid Sitka spruce top.

The custom design is all Swift's, feat…

Single Review: Susan Hickman "Whipping Post"

Image
If "Black Velvet" singer Alannah Myles decided to record a Texas country album, she might sound a lot like newcomer Susan Hickman. That's a big compliment, and Hickman, who just released her blues-infused track "Whipping Post" to Texas country radio, is perfectly poised for a big country music career.


Hickman's self-titled debut dropped in February to regional fans. The MP3 is now available nationwide, and the CD will be released to a national audience in the coming months.

"Whipping Post"is a powerful, sexy track that builds to a rousing crescendo. Susan Hickman offers a winning cover of the classic Allman Brothers tune and shows raw emotion in an authentic vocal performance that boldly announces her entry to Texas country music.

Red Dirt fans should get used to "Whipping Post," because Susan Hickman's sultry cover will likely be giving the beat down to its competition in its attempt to achieve country chart domination. CountryChart.c…
