Carrie Underwood Shoots Down Taylor Swift Comparison

by at . Comments

They may both dominate the country music scene, but Carrie Underwood wants to make one thing clear: she is no Taylor Swift. And vice versa.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz last week, the former American Idol champion took issue with any comparisons between the successful stars, saying:

"I feel like we're definitely completely different artists... I'm a little bit older than she is and I feel like our music's completely different and if anyone tries to make any comparisons they really haven't listened to either one of us."

Underwood added that Swift's songs are a "bit lighter" and the two simply have different brands, a point that's difficult to argue with. But whose music do you prefer? Select a answer/winner to that question now:

Both are amazingly talented artists in their own right. There is no doubt that Carrie Underwood is a much more talented SINGER, she has an amazing voice. Taylor Swift, on the other hand, is an INCREDIBLY talented songwriter. She can take anything and make it into a great song. I personally am a huge Taylor Swift fan because I really appreciate good songwriting, but I would never talk down Carrie Underwood either. Both are great artists.

.. giving her more exposure whereas Carrie's songs are mostly played on country radio as she refused to remix any of her songs to just so she could get more audience. She believed that if they were to like her, they should like her based on the originals that she put out; as an artist, she believe that she shouldn't compromise her artistry just for the chance that she'll get more audience. That, my friends, would be called a "sell out" and Carrie is not a sell out. It has never been about quantity. It's about QUALITY. Sorry for the typos. I'm using my phone to comment.. Fat thumbs.. :P

I love Carrie! Taylor is always whining about a guy. And she has so many breakup, man trashing songs, sounds like she has really been around Hollywood and bragging about it. Trashy

Carrie Underwood...hands down! Taylor fans are basically the 'teenie bopper' group, which is fine. But Carrie is more of an adult group getter. Her songs are more edgy and geared towards REAL life issues. Not saying Taylor's aren't, but her's are more like the 'achy breaky' songs.
Basically...Taylor Swift= teenage life
Carrie Underwood= adult life Oh yeah, and Carrie can actually sing! JMO

Taylor Swift. Her songs are cuter and more relatable (at least to me, I'm 18).

Meh, Taylor. Though Carrie does have some songs I don't mind listening too

Carrie is 29 and Taylor is 22 - there is a whole lot of living between 22 and 29...they are completely different and it wasn't Carrie slighting Taylor...she was being honest. She is different. Her music is different. I don't know why Taylor's fans are getting so upset over Carrie's comment. It is the truth. They shouldn't be compared. They don't sing the same songs, their voices are different, their lives are different. Their fans are different in most cases. I prefer Carrie. I prefer her range of subjects in her music. I prefer her range in music...country, country pop, country rock, ballads, gospel...she just has a wider range in musical styles.

Taylor swift any day of the week. Taylors songs are better and she is a true artist in every sense of the word.

I'm surprised Carrie said anything. That being said I understand what Carrie meant. They are at different places in their life. Taylor still has that pureness about her. Carrie is a bit edgy and was accused of being too rock and roll. I like both. Taylor is like revisiting high school. Carrie gets you amped.
