"Over the years, I have known some great songwriters and I have also known some great singers and performers," Carole said.  "It's rare to see all those talents in one person. Taylor Swift. She is one of the only modern pop artists whose name appears as the sole songwriter in her song credits.  Her lyrics resonate across all generations, her songs touch everyone and her impact around the world is extraordinary."
