NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — “Miss Americana,” the Netflix documentary about Taylor Swift, is now streaming and features comments from Swift about Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn – and they're less than positive.

Variety reports that ahead of the film’s release, Blackburn tried to patch things up with Swift. They also shared a statement from Blackburn, saying although she and Taylor Swift disagree on some policy issues, they can work together.

“Miss Americana” is a behind-the-scenes look at the super star's life that includes how she came to the decision to make her first public political statement about an election in Tennessee. She endorsed former Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen's senate campaign over Blackburn's. However, Blackburn still won.

Meanwhile, Blackburn is working on a plan to close gaps in the Music Modernization Act.
