Taylor Swift, Tim McGraw

Tim McGraw isn't about to give dating advice to his friend Taylor Swift.

"She's young and beautiful and she's loaded," McGraw told me earlier today while promoting his two-hour television special ACM Presents: Tim McGraw's Superstar Summer Night (airing May 19 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS). "She can do whatever she wants."


Just this morning, McGraw released the music video for "Highway Don't Care," his new single with Swift and featuring Keith Urban.

"Taylor is one of those real artists that comes along every once in awhile that creates such a wave that everybody falls into it," McGraw said. "She's got a great sense of style, she's a beautiful girl and she's a great singer. But I think as much as anything, she is a really fantastic songwriter."

McGraw says he's also impressed with how the "I Knew You Were Trouble" singer has handled the endless scrutiny of her every move.

"I was young when I started, but not nearly as young as her," he said. "It's gotta be tough. But she's just got such poise and a confidence about her. I think she's really handled herself well."

No disagreeing with that.

Who else would McGraw love to work with? Make sure to come back to E! Online tomorrow to find out. Plus, check out Swift at the Met Gala on tonight's E! News at 7 p.m. and 11:30 p.m.
