“I’m kind of bummed at this stage that I didn’t have a great education because I could really use that these days,” she confessed to Yahoo in an exclusive interview. “I’ve learned to educate myself at this stage and how to continue my education at any age,” she said. “I’m going on 30 and I’m still very thirsty for information. On tour, we go to different museums and get to soak up all kinds of different cultural experiences.”

I may homeschool my daughter just so I don’t get sick every other week.”
Taylor was homeschooled in 10th grade, and completed high school in homeschool. She manages her own company and writes her own songs.
