Long-time Swifties will already be aware that Taylor Swift’s musical talent goes back generations.

The pop icon, who reached billionaire status last month according to Bloomberg, has never been afraid to celebrate this fact either, often honouring her family members – not just lovers – in many of her songs.

In 2020, she released a ballad named after her late grandmother, Marjorie Finlay, as one of the songs from her Evermore track list.

“Marjorie” is inspired by Swift’s maternal grandma and is an emotional and heart-wrenching tribute to the country singer’s memories before her passing, with lyrics including: “I should’ve asked you questions; I should’ve asked you how to be; Asked you to write it down for me; Should’ve kept every grocery store receipt; ‘Cause every scrap of you would be taken from me”.
