Taylor Swift Excited By Other Artists

(Radio.com) In addition to selling millions of records and touring the world, Taylor Swift often champions her favorite artists and brings them on the road with her. This year's RED Tour is no exception. A huge fan of Ed Sheeran, Swift tweeted her love for the singer long before he became a mainstream act.

Sheeran, of course, isn't the only artist she's a fan of. In an interview with Billboard, the "22″ singer said she's also "obsessed" with her other tour mates' music, especially country duo Florida Georgia Line's single "Cruise."

"It's the catchiest thing I've heard in years, and I love the Nelly version too," she said. "They're out on tour with us right now, so I get to hear it all the time."

Florida Georgia Line isn't the only duo Swift has on repeat as of late, though. "I'm also absolutely smitten with 'I Love It' by Icona Pop," she said. "It's the way reckless abandon sounds in my head. I play it right before I go onstage."

She's also all about Tegan & Sara. While she recognizes that the Quin twins have been making music for a while (nearly 15 years, actually), she points out Tegan & Sara's new (and pop-leaning) album, Heartthrob, really stretched their sound. "I was just so impressed by it, and there isn't a song on it I don't love," she said. "So I guess, in my mind, I categorize them as the new Tegan & Sara. To see artists evolve like that is so inspiring." But what about EDM?
