business news in context, analysis with attitude

• Chalk up another exclusive artist contract for Wal-Mart. Teen singing sensation Taylor Swift reportedly will release a new CD/DVD called “Beautiful Eyes” exclusively through Wal-Mart on July 15.

Swift’s first CD sold more than three million copies.

KC's View:
I have to admit that I really like listening to Taylor Swift. But since she’s 18, and I’m 53, I somehow feel weird about downloading her songs.

So I listen to her on my daughter’s iPod.
