I can see you in my rearview mirror, Taylor Nation.
Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who wishes that the day would be longer so he would get more time to write, we’d we really thankful if someone, say the guys from the Ninja Department, would step up and help out. Apparently ninjas don’t do chores. Lazy bums.
The Princess in Red took Edmonton’s Rexall Place by storm last night, June 25, and the reviews are in. Edmonton Journal described it as, “just a non-stop, post-modern twist of expectations soaring frictionlessly between genres, decades and emotion-matching costume changes, each matching the nine-month tour’s name, Red.”
That the Enchantress has a well rehearsed dialog does not mean it’s not heartfelt every night. “Where were the really notoriously crazy crowds?” she said to the audience at Rexall Place.
“I missed you terribly. Here tonight, 13,000 of you have opted to hear me sing about my feelings for the next two hours. I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for making my music the soundtrack to your crazy emotions.”

The classic song for the B Stage was White Horse. This remains one of her most critically acclaimed songs, having won her performer and songwriter (hint: same person, she plays a RED sparkly guitar, you can’t miss her) two Grammys (yes, I double checked this time) for Best Country Song and Best Female Country Vocal Performance back in 2010.
The very next night, June 26, the Queen of Sparks surprised everyone with Fearless. This song will always be a milestone and a career moment for T-Swizzle. It’s very subtle, very powerful and might I say, even empowering. The word Fearless became her word. For this and more reasons, she remains the Fearless One.
