Taylor Swift Should Thank This Legend for the Idea to Rerecord Her Masters

Taylor Swift has plans to rerecord all her back catalog in order to own the masters. It was an idea sparked by a tweet posted by Kelly Clarkson encouraging her to do so that went viral and created a huge debate.

It turns out, Kelly’s tweet was actually inspired by another artist who happens to be in her family, her mother-in-law Reba McEntire.

Kelly told Jimmy Fallon, "I wasn’t trying to defend or offend anyone (with that tweet). It was more that Reba told me she did that. She wanted to own her masters. She recut all her music and used the same musicians, same everything."

"Taylor is the kind of artist who’s been writing since she was a little girl," she continued. "It’s kind of her diary, so I totally get why she wants to own it."
