Riff: Tim McGraw – “Highway Don’t Care”

Feb 4, 2013

I bet you got a dead cell phone in your shotgun seat/Yeah, I bet you’re bending God’s ear talking ’bout me.

from Highway Don't Care lyrics by Tim McGraw

The inspiration for one of her first tell-all musical diary entries, Taylor Swift gets to connect with the real thing on this heartfelt duet which in the wake of a dramatic break-up, comes to the conclusion that major public roads aren’t capable of providing much in the way of emotional support.
