Growing Hope: Mallary Hope comes back Swinging!

Hello music lovers,

There’s a few reasons I started this blog. Even back then, one was sparkly dressed, while the others wore suits and shades. Nowadays, there’s also some powerful reasons to continue writing it. This is one of the best.

If you haven’t heard about the talented and beautiful Mallary Hope, now would be the very best time to discover her. Her latest work is getting more and more amazing. Hopefully next year we’ll get some new music.

To tide us over, the Hopester just celebrated a followers milestone by posting a new song, Swinging, in Reverbnation. The song, written by Mal with fellow songwriters Phil Barton and Alissa Moreno, is a somber but powerful song in both melody and lyrics about overcoming obstacles and proving naysayers wrong. Mal and her fellow songwriters have written something that feels Country and breathes Soul at the same time. Be glad you’re hearing it acoustic, because I think that’s the best way it should be heard. This is some of her best work, and she’s letting us download this song.

Mallary Hope is featured on Darius Rucker’s upcoming album, True Believers, out on January 22. She sings on the track I Will Love You Still. According to mallaryhopefans.com, the Original Georgia Peach will also be joining Dave Barnes’ A Very Merry Christmas at the James K. Polk Theater on December 15. Tickets via the Tennesse Performing Arts Center.

Forever and always, Australia! Begin Again on Ellen and more from the 2012 ARIA Awards

G’Day Taylor Nation,

Here at the Swift Agency, one guy who hopes the building turns on the heat real soon, we don’t know about you but I’m feeling 42. It’s cold up north. Our fellow Swifties down under are probably feeling a chill too, but for a different reason. The Enchantress took the long flight back to the US last night… morning… afternoon… ok she’s on her way and crossing a few timezones as we speak.

As reported by T-Swizzle herself, her past performance of Begin Again will finally air on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today. I’m guessing this was the scheduled appearance for Monday that has been moved up for today. This is a taped segment from her past visit that couldn’t air due to exclusivity rights (the 2012 CMA Awards got the Begin Again live debut).

You can see pictures of the Princess in Red at Sydney International on Just Jared. I don’t like to see her leaving to be honest. I’d rather report her arrival. She’ll be landing in LA. She’s scheduled to guest host at American Top 40 over the weekend (December 1st and 2nd). Thanks to @C_Carlson for the heads up. She will be answering fan questions as well.

Here’s the Enchantress presenting at the 2012 ARIA Awards in Sydney on November 29, 2012.

Hello Taylor Nation,

Here at the Swift Agency, one guy who’s wishing this week over already, we’re happy to hear the Princess in Red presented and performed at the 2012 ARIA Awards on Thursday, November 29.

Yes, there’s a zillion pictures out there of just the Queen of Sparks alone, but this time I chose one of her with her fans. I just feel that her relationship with the Taylor Nation is one of the most outstanding things that sets her apart from other artists.

Her choice of wardrobe for the evening was an Elie Saab gown. According to EntertainmentWise her dress combined with her hair up in an elegant bun drew some Grace Kelly comparisons. You can also see more pictures at Celebrity Gossip.

Besides presenting Best Male Artist to Gotye, T-Swizzle also took the stage to perform I Knew You Were Trouble. Let’s go to the video!
