More highlights from the 45th CMA Awards and your Entertainer of the Year!

Hello Taylor Nation!

Here at the Swift Agency, just one guy who almost slept my Saturday away, we’re still jumping up and down for the Outspoken One’s win last Wednesday night, November 9. I hope you’re not bored of looking at videos and interviews from that night.

Here’s Taylor getting interviewed backstage after her big win by Blair Garner and Laura Bell Bundy.

The Queen of Sparks plays the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa, Florida tonight, November 12.

By the way, I want to thank the offers I’ve gotten in Twitter to participate in fan projects but it’s really not my style. What I do best (or what I love best) is research and write, and it really takes up all the time I have available right now.

Birds flying high, you know how I feel: Taylor Swift in Jacksonville, FLA

Hello Taylor Nation!

The Outspoken One is back on the road again. Her stop last night, November 11, was on Jacksonville, Florida where she performed a sold out show at the Veterans Memorial Arena.

A huge shoutout to our unpaid correspondent @Enchanted2MeetU for all the concert details!

The Arm Lyrics from last night were: “Birds flying high, you know how I feel” from Feeling Good by Nina Simone. That’s an all time favorite song of mine. It has also been performed more recently by Michael Buble and also there’s an excellent cover version by Muse. The original version was part of a musical, but it’s Nina Simone’s version that is regarded as the classic one.

Okey, I overdid it with the research on that one…

The Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar didn’t do a cover last night. But… I thought I’d post a clip anyways. Here’s Taylor when she literally pops up on stage to sing Our Song. Thanks to @Enchanted2MeetU for the clip 🙂
