INTERVIEW: Parachute Lead Singer Says He and Taylor Swift Are ‘Best Friends’

Not every Taylor Swift relationship ends with a breakup song. Example: Swift’s friendship with Parachute lead singer Will Anderson.

“I don’t know. I honestly don’t,” Anderson responded on “The Ralphie Show” when asked whether he is the subject of a song on her last album Red. The general consensus among some “Swifties” is that he is the “nice guy” the singer speaks of in “Begin Again.” “We don’t really talk about that stuff… we talk about professional stuff. I’ll ask her advice on things but when it comes to what songs are about, we just let those be.”

Anderson just hung out with the songstress last week.

“It’s fun to hang with somebody who does the same thing you do,” he said. “It’s also fun because she can give me advice on anything our band can possibly be going through; she’s already done it. Even though she’s a little bit younger than us, she’s the biggest artist in the world right now.”

Parachute’s next album, Overnight, is complete and due out August 13. Don’t expect any songs on their about Swift.

“She knows better than that,” Anderson said before joking, “She wishes, but no!”

The album’s current single from that album, “Can’t Help,” was co-written by Anderson and Ryan Tedder.

“We originally had CeeLo Green in mind,” the singer revealed. “We said, ‘We can’t give this one away.’”

Tedder didn’t mind. Meanwhile, Anderson never did get a song to Green, but he’s pretty sure “The Voice” coach is “winning in life, so it’s good.”
