What is there left to say about Taylor Swift? I mean, aside from that she’s headed to the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa on Aug. 14. Seriously, what can anyone add to the conversation about this country-turned-pop crossover singer/songwriter out of Reading, Penn.? I’m guessing that most anybody reading this already has an opinion — and likely a strong one — about whether Swift is currently the brightest star currently recording or a cunning villain who has risen on the hot air of her haters.
Kari Jobe knows that life can be painful. “Sometimes, we can experience such loss that it knocks the wind out of us,” said the Christian singer. It was during such a period that the Texas native wrote much of what would become “The Garden,” her fifth studio album. The tour for the record. which released in February, will bring her to the Crosslife Church in Orlando on Friday (7 p.m., 45 W. Broadway St., $24.95-$74.95, 855-484-1991, premierproductions.com).
So it’s Sam Smith versus Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran all over again, huh? In 2014, the British crooner released his debut album “In the Lonely Hour” to much hype and acclaim, bolstered by his guest spot on Naughty Boy’s “La La La.” The record went on to become the second best selling album in both the U.S. and the U.K., beaten out by Swift’s “1989” and Sheeran’s “x” respectively.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
