OFFSTAGE: Taylor Swift Hopes She'll End Up Happy

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

If you know Taylor Swift's music, you know she's looking for love. Her songs are all somehow about the relentless pursuit of romance. But one song on her latest album is more about the fame she's kind of lucked into. In a special collector's edition of Us magazine on newsstands Friday (Feb. 8), Swift reveals the story behind "The Lucky One." Swift says it was inspired by people she'd seen become stars, then had everyone tell them how lucky they were. But in the song, it's the girl who runs away from the fame who is really the lucky one in the end. "I don't know how I see my future ending up, but I hope I'll know how to age gracefully and when to step out of the spotlight," Swift says. "I hope I'll end up happy."
