Known for inspiring young girls everywhere to embrace the sundress and cowboy boots, Taylor has openly said she’s happy to be a role model.
“Seeing girls coming to my shows wearing sundresses and cowboy boots and curling their hair is one of my favorite experiences ever because I remember when I was weird for dressing the way that I dressed and I was weird for having curly hair,” she said in an interview. “It’s really fun to see that I’m not that weird anymore.”
