With her father's political future on the line today, the media-genic daughters of former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman were talking music with MTV's Sway in New Hampshire.

Liddy likes The Roots and John Legend, Mary Anne prefers classical (she's a classical pianist), and Abby grew up listening to rock music.

Gov. Huntsman, Liddy said, wasn't as open-minded about music as his high-school rock-band history might suggest. When she was in the seventh grade, Liddy had some CDs stashed that she thought her dad wouldn't approve of. Sure enough, when Dad found them, he broke them in half.
