But the honor is a bit more impressive if the person who wrote and sang the song is country superstar Taylor Swift.
Such is the case with Stephen Barker Liles, the 25-year-old singer for the band Love and Theft, who at one time was the apple of Taylor’s eye — and is now the subject off her song “Hey Stephen” on her new album, “Fearless.”“The song is actually about a guy who I had a crush on and never told him,” Taylor previously told , Stephen explained what it was like to find out the country cutie had a secret crush on him.“When I first heard it, I was like wow! “It’s probably the nicest thing a girl has ever done for me.”The two met when Love and Theft opened up for Taylor while on tour in 2008.
Taylor's lyrics to Picture To Burn include: 'State the obvious, I didn't get my perfect fantasy / I realize you love yourself more than you could ever love me / So go and tell your friends that I'm obsessive and crazy / That's fine I'll tell mine that you're gay.''She really does write her own songs, so I guess if you date her you have to know you're going to get a song written about you.THE EVIDENCE: Originally performed at HS talent show when the two of them were dating.You know, before she realized she could start getting with Jonas brothers and shit. Our future doctors, lawyers, mothers, presidents, they kind of keep the world going. It’s quite an honor to have a song written about you.
