Ryan Adams is covering Taylor Swift's '1989' in the "style of the Smiths"
To be perfectly honest, it kind of just sounds like a Ryan Adams song. Naturally, Swift is overjoyed by the news.
@TheRyanAdams Cool I'm not gonna be able to sleep tonight or ever again and I'm going to celebrate today every year as a holiday. I'M CALM— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) August 6, 2015
No word on whether nor not this ambitious cover project will be released or not.
Facts about: Ryan Adams
In 2002, a fan in Tennessee yelled out a request for “Summer of ’69” by similarly named Canadian artist Bryan Adams. Adams ordered the venue to turn on the house lights, found the fan, paid him $30 cash as a refund for the show, ordered him to leave, and said he wouldn’t pay a single note until it happened. Pam Matthews, the manager of the Ryman Auditorium apologized for Adams and allowed him back into the concert. The fan kept Adam’s $30.
Thirteen years later in 2015, Adams covered the song with Bryan Adams in Nashville. The Ryman and Nashville never forgets.
