Poll: Is Taylor Swift Still Country?

Taylor Swift is one of the biggest crossover stars in the history of country music. Not since Shania Twain at her peak has the genre seen an artist score so much success in radio formats and media outside of the genre.

But some traditional country fans say she has gone too far with her latest album, ‘Red,’ and that the music she is making now has nothing to do with her roots in country. Even fellow country star Luke Bryan has questioned whether she’s a country act now.

“I wouldn’t necessarily say she is a country artist,” he tells the Huffington Post. “I mean, obviously Taylor Swift started in country, but she morphed into somewhat of a cultural icon, so, who am I to judge what she is?”

What do you think? Is Swift still a country musician, or has she turned into a pop star who’s still being marketed to country fans?
