Taylor Swift Can Play Her Older Songs On the American Music Awards


Taylor Swift will be able to play any songs from her catalog that she wishes this Sunday on the American Music Awards. Taylor posted to social media last week that her old label, Big Machine Label Group, was preventing her from being able to perform her old music on the show despite the fact that she is receiving the Artist of the Decade award. In her post, she begged her fans and Big Machine's and Scooter Braun's (a partner in Big Machine) artist roster to help her in her fight to be permitted to play her music. Taylor left the label last year and with her departure, she left ownership of her first albums.

Big Machine release a statement to NPR this afternoon that says both the producers of the American Music Awards and Big Machine Label Group have come to terms on a licensing agreement that approves' their artists' performances to stream after the show. They, also, explained in their statement that artists never need label approval to perform anything live.
