Holy Ground is a song recorded by American recording artist Taylor Swift, taken from her fourth studio album, Red (2012). It was written by Swift herself, while the production was handled by Jeff Bhasker. It serves as the eleventh track on the album.

Critical reception

The song was generally well-received, with some critics highlighting it as a stand-out track. Chris Willman of the The Hollywood Reporter cited "Holy Ground" as "one of the two or three finest tracks" of the album, and remarked that the "driving drum and rhythm guitar ... grab your attention from [the] first verse to [the] last".[1] In Idolator's review of Red, Sam Lansky called "Holy Ground" "the most startling song on the album" due to strong lyricism and dynamic production: "A storming drum beat brings a sense of urgency that Swift’s sprawling soft-rock productions have rarely had. But the lyrics are classic Swift, with a couplet that’s brilliantly tight and so obvious it seems like it should have been the hook in a thousand pop songs already: “Tonight I’m gonna dance for all that we’ve been through/But I don’t wanna dance if I’m not dancing with you.” "[2]
