What did Taylor Swift say about Carole?
Country turned pop sensation Taylor Swift, 31, inducted King into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in October 2021.
During her introduction, Swift talked about the music legend and revealed that her parents were big fans.
“I cannot remember a time when I didn’t know Carole King’s music,” Swift said.
“I was raised by two of her biggest fans, who taught me the basic truths of life as they saw it: That you should treat people the way you want to be treated, that you must believe that you can achieve whatever you want to in life, and that Carole King is the greatest songwriter of all time.”
She then went on to reveal that she might not have been here if it wasn’t for King’s music.
“There have been times when any fan’s dedication to the artist they love can complicate things in their personal life,” she continued.
“My dad once told me a story from when he was in college and a girl he was just starting to date flirtatiously asked him if there were any songs that made him think of her.
“He instantly responded with his absolute favorite song, which was ‘It’s Too Late’ by Carole King—not taking into consideration that the lyrics include lines like ‘Something inside has died and I just can’t hide and I just can’t fake it.’ Shockingly the relationship didn’t work out. But if it had, I wouldn’t be here tonight.”
