OFFSTAGE: Taylor Swift Only Drinks “Wine Sometimes”

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

This is probably the best rule of thumb (from Taylor Swift) when it comes to drinking: “I don’t drink much alcohol. If it doesn’t taste like candy or sparkles, I usually don’t drink it. Wine sometimes, because it makes me feel classy, but not Scotch. Not yet.” That’s what Swift told Esquire magazine in this little Q&A they did with her because she was named one of the women they love. She even admitted she does read the men’s magazine and hopes that after this issue hits newsstands, she will see even more stylish men at her shows. “I would love that. I love the suspenders and plaid pants and whatever. Hair that’s combed,” she said.

Alison makes her living loving country music. She's based in Chicago, but she's always leaving her heart in Nashville.
