Taylor Swift has been replaced in one of Nashville’s most famous murals.
On Christmas Day (December 25), a new photo showed an artist working on “Legendary Corner” murals at 5th Street and Broadway, next to the historic Ryman Auditorium.
Fans call their frustration with the big changes on social media. The Swifts weren’t happy with the change and started trending, “Young Taylor ran the country” on Twitter.
Fox News 17 Nashville reported that the “boyfriend” singer had “retired”. Prior to this major change, the mural had not been edited since its inception.
Swift’s portrait was replaced with Brad Paisley, who opened in 2007 on his Bonfire and Amplifier Tour. Artist Tim Davis will add two more unspecified country music stars to the mural.
Originally featured by country music legends Loretta Lynn, Tim McGraw, Blake Shelton, Dyers Bentley, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Keith Urban, Merrill Haggard, Reba McEntary, Alan Jackson, George Strait, Dolly Parton and Garth Brooke.
When Swift was fourteen, she and her family moved to Nashville to pursue a career in country music. Swift made her debut in country music and moved into the pop music realm during her 2012 red album.
