Hello Taylor Nation!
Here at the Swift Agency, one guy who can’t believe his luck, we took a bus ride to the airport on a whim… and ended up meeting The Agency themselves. Besides the big fanboy moment, I did have the presence of mind to try not to bug them too much, however there was no need. Without an ounce of hesitation they talked and took pictures. That being said, if you’re ever in luck and meet them, be respectful and polite when you ask just as you would be with anybody else.
Amos is a joker and keeps the mood light. Often enough, you will pick him easily on stage. He plays the bass, jumps around a lot and will often play with the crowd.
Amos was quick to remember me from a certain Fearless concert in which I showed up dressed with the suit and glasses in the old Picture To Burn style that gave the band its inside name. He’s also read a few of my editorials here.
It was my first time meeting Caitlin Evanson, and as I extended my hand she immediately said “I’m a hugger” and went in for a hug. She has such a warm and open personality that I couldn’t help but remember her affection for birds – she resembles one in spirit. Here’s Caitlin’s Agency Profile.
Paul Sidoti is another gentle soul. He always seems to have a smile on his face and be at peace with himself. From his own tweets I know we share almost identical tastes in music, to the point that I often use his album recommendations as much as Taylor’s. You can read more about him in his own Agency Profile.
The man, the legend! Grant Mickelson is one of the coolest cats I’ve ever met. Even more so, he’s been one to reply on Twitter and complimented me on the site – publicly. I believe I owe Grant half my traffic and my readership – the other half is probably due to Amos. Grant is very approachable and down to earth to the point that you find himself talking to him like he’s an old friend from high school.
Well… an old friend from high school that can play the guitar like nobody’s business, that is. You can find more about Grant in his own Agency Profile.
And saving one of the best for last, I finally met again with the adorable Elizabeth Huett. She did remembered me from the Fearless Tour when I clumsily introduced myself as one of her Twitter followers.
She was very sweet, talkative and cute as ever. I completely forgot everything I had been planning to ask the next time I met her. Not my fault. Those eyes are magical or something. I wish she’d made a single showcasing her own voice. She’s a great singer on her own right.

I also had the chance to meet Mike Meadows, who asked my name and told me he had a chance to read one of my editorials as well, as well as Daniel Sadownick, David Cook and the big man himself, Al Wilson, who was every bit as nice as other fans have told me he is. Also traveling with them were dancers Claire Callaway and Fernando Miro, who also were a joy to meet.
