Following their breathless meeting, Taylor Swift is asked by Justin Gaston to be his secret date in a newly-premiered 'Love Story' music video.
Country music darling Taylor Swift has dropped a music video for her lead single, entitled "Love Story". Containing romantic lyrics which are combined with mid tempo country and pop sounds, the tune is scheduled to appear in her highly-anticipated album "Fearless", which is due for release on November 11 via Big Machines Records.
The music video itself speaks of Romeo-and-Juliet love story where Taylor plays the part of Juliet while Nashville star Justin Gaston plays Romeo. They are shown to be attracted to each other during their first meeting in a dance ball and decide to follow up their love-at-the-first-sight with a midnight date in a stable.
Furthermore, nominated for for Female Vocalist of the Year at 2008 Country Music Association Award, Taylor says that battling Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, Alison Krauss, and Martina McBride in the category is an honor. "I didn't expect to be nominated in that category, so I was really shocked. Those are my heroes. I look up to them so much. This has been such an incredible week," she states.
