Taylor Swift Teams With Dixie Chicks on Poignant New Tune, “Soon You’ll Get Better” [Listen]

Taylor Swift dropped her seventh studio album, Lover, on Aug. 23.

The 18-song offering features a notable collaboration with the Dixie Chicks on the new tune, “Soon You’ll Get Better,” which Taylor co-penned about her mom, Andrea, who has been battling cancer.

During a YouTube Live Stream on Aug. 22, Taylor revealed the song was “really, really hard to write . . . We as a family decided to put this on the album, and it’s something I’m so proud of, but it’s just really hard. I can’t sing it. It’s hard to just emotionally deal with that song.”

The song features background vocals from the Dixie Chicks, as well as stripped-down banjo and fiddle.

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
