Brad Paisley has nothing but kind words to say about his former opening act, Taylor Swift. The two have been friends for awhile and even toured together in 2007. Now Brad’s talking about Taylor’s crossover from country cutie to pop sensation.

Taylor recently made the announcement that her upcoming album 1989 would be her first pop album, leaving country music behind, for now at least. This move has been getting a lot of attention lately, so what did Brad have to say about Taylor’s transition? Find out below!

In an interview with E! News, Brad talked about Taylor’s music crossover calling it, “admirable.” It sounds like Brad is proud of Taylor for wanting to grow and try different things.

So, how does Brad think fans will react to Taylor’s evolution? Brad said, “People are going to have to get used to it cause it’s not the Taylor Swift obviously that you knew. Because this is somebody—like, she was talking about how she cut her hair, and she is spending time in different cities more and becoming more of a product—and she is a world famous superstar now. She is just not Nashville’s, [and] we just have to kind of get used to that.”

Brad went on to talk about Taylor’s new music and said, “People are going to love it. It’s going to sell, and it already is [selling]. She has done a great job.”

We love that Brad’s sticking up for Taylor, such a loyal friend! What do you think of Brad’s comments about Taylor? Sound off below!
