When making ‘Speak Now,’ I knew there was a lot of pressure on my shoulders because of the success of ‘Fearless.’ But I never wanted to look at ‘Fearless’ as the opposition, because then you’re resenting your previous work. That album was a collection of memories from my life at 16, 17, and 18 and I’ll always look back on it and smile. I’ve always had this formula for my music, that if I always write songs about my life and my life is always changing, my music will always be changing, too.
