Hello Taylor Nation!
Here at the Swift Agency, one guy who can’t keep up with the Blond with the Sparkly Guitar quick enough, we’re scrambling some extra hours at work with the intention of making a certain trip.
According to Nickutopia, Taylor Swift will take part as a presenter in the HALO Awards. HALO stands for Helping And Leading Others. It’s a Nickelodeon production that rewards teenagers that contributed to help and solve social problems. Among the other stars participating are Lady Gaga, David Beckham and Jessica Biel. The show will get taped in Los Angeles on October 26 and will air on November 6, 2011 on Nick at Nite. Taylor Swift will honor James O’Dwyer:
James O’Dwyer, 19, Tuscaloosa, Ala. (paired with Taylor Swift) – James was a freshman at University of Alabama when the devastating EF4 tornado hit Tuscaloosa, leaving a six mile track of destruction across the region. He started Magnolia Disaster Relief, an aid program that targets small rural towns hit the hardest by tornadoes and helped the least by delivering food, water and clothing, along with toys, furniture and fridges so affected people can start rebuilding their lives. James’s HALO match is Taylor Swift who, among her many philanthropic endeavors, raises money and awareness to benefit those affected by tornadoes and floods.
Update! Seems the Outspoken One has already filmed her contribution to the show and met with James inside one of her concert’s T-Parties. You can see sneek peek pictures on Just Jared Jr.
The Sparkly Dressed will be honored for the second year in a row as part of the CMT Artists Of The Year event. This 90-minute special includes musical performances, featured speakers and top cuisine. Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Lady Antebellum, Brad Paisley and the Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar will be the honorees. The event will air on December 13 at 9PM ET/PT.
Taylor might have some company over that day… she’ll have to stop a certain festivity and turn on the TV. She might have twenty-two candles and a cake obstructing her view of the screen. Just saying.
