Sophia Scott introduces a country twist to Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" right from the comfort of her home. She doesn't have a big video setup or official music video. What she does have however, is an incredible talent.

She does an excellent job of capturing the pain of someone who was on the receiving end of someone who was wronged.

It's a bit deeper but still has the same awesome effect as the rest of covers mentioned before it.Check out Sophia Scott's "Bad Blood" cover below.
