    I saw this quite a few months ago..Not new, and yes…very cute. A wonderful tribute to her mom..

  • Lillian

    She sure knows how to express her feelings in a song. A very talented young lady. I know she is not a great singer like Carrie Underwood, but this girl is sure making a splash. She is a poet

  • Frank

    She is a very very talented young lady with such a personality and she doesn’t need to do all the other things that some of her peers are doing for attention.. The attention she draws is only go

    because it’s a specific video about family, individuals, relationships, time, love, life. it’s one of my favourite videos. this girl has been a big star since she was little and it’s good that she’s sharing her talents with lots of others. but also that people are allowing her to express herself and support her.

  • vannie

    She’s so talented…love her!

  • blah

    Please… Taylor Swift is way better than Carrie Underwood. She did not have to go on American Idol to make it big. She did it on her own. Plus she writes her own music. I am not a country fan. Do not like that kind of music, but i respect Taylor Swift becsaue she is such a talented artist. Dont even put her in teh same category with Carrie underwood… Or myley Cyrus for that matter. She is way better than the both of them

  • ahdy

    excellent storyteller.

  • whitney

    shut up 4 some of you that are hating!

    this is like one of the sweetest music videos, esp nowadays w/ all the trashy songs and noncreative music videos.. .really made me wish i was closer with my mom=[

  • anonmus

    One of the few stars who actually appears to be a genuinely sweet person. We need more role models like her.

  • Lauren

    i laughed when i read some comments saying that they criend while watching/listening. then i watched.

    this song.. is my life. especially the ‘now i’m 13′ part. it’s me…
    i cried.

  • Amanda

    @Dani: It did not say re-released when I commented on it. It said released, plain and simple. It was edited after I made the comment about it being wrong. Stop being such an ignorant jerk. I had to reply to you saying exactly what I had just said in another post because YOU did not read.

  • perv-mo

    Too Hot! Have to turn the sexy down!

  • xsleekx

    goodness, that is the loveliest thing i’ve seen all day, what a fab family.

  • Amanda

    @blah: Vocally, Taylor is nowhere near as good as Carrie Underwood. Carrie has a natural born talent for singing and no one can deny that. She has range and power, which are two things that Taylor is sorely lacking. Taylor didn’t go on American Idol to get where she is because she wouldn’t have made it past the first round. She can’t stay on key to save her life singing live. .
    American Idol isn’t a piece of cake to get through, let alone win. They are learning at least 3 new songs a week that they have to perform live on a stage in front of millions of people and they have to be criticized by the judges in front of all of those people. They have to be able to keep themselves together through four months of this. On top of learning the music, they have various other things that they have to do during that week for the show, such as filming music videos. They run on very little sleep and are away from their family for that entire four months. It’s a tough process and it takes a lot of work. Also, the ultimate test is whether these people can hold on to a career after they win, or if they will fade into obscurity like Ruben Studdard. Carrie has done that.
    I have a lot of respect for Taylor for the same reasons you do. She got where she is on her own and she has some great songwriting and guitar playing skills. But in my opinion all of those things pale in comparison to Carrie Underwood’s vocal talent and the fact that you are putting Miley Cyrus and Carrie into the same group is disgusting. I respect that you like Taylor, but I can’t respect the fact that you think she is better than Carrie as far as talent goes. I think your entire post just shows how immature you are that you can’t simply state your respect for one artist while being polite about not liking another. Grow up.

  • chan

    I love that song! it seems like taylor had a wonderfull childhood.
    I think her mom is really beautiful!
