American Country Music in Mongolia

Walking in a store today I had a strange experience.  It's rare to hear music from America in Mongolia.  When you do, it's usually hip-hop or rap, perhaps surprisingly to most.

But when I heard an American country/pop song today, I couldn't resist asking if it was the radio.  The store clerk said no, it was a song from her phone.  So then I asked, what's the name of the singer?  She couldn't say.  I was about to tell her, but then other people walked in.

So I thought I'd write it down here:  Taylor Swift might be proud to know her music is played by Mongolians as well.  Maybe she already knew that, you think?
