The Rumor Mill

Here’s a good one:

Hicks’ former producer Will Smith of Baldwin Entertainment in Nashville tells In Touch Weekly magazine that Taylor wanted to release a song he wrote called “the Fall” instead of the tune written for him. Says Smith, “He wants to be known as a songwriter, not a karaoke singer.”

Oh, and by the way

Smith is now trying to make his case for “The Fall” by releasing the song to radio stations and letting Hicks’ fans hear it for themselves.

I’m cynical, so I’m thinking “cashing in.”  But that’s just me…
