Hope you had a great holiday break, Taylor Nation.

The Sparkly Dressed is up for her first award of 2014 tonight as the 40th Annual People’s Choice Awards take place at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. She is nominated for Favorite Country Artist. Strangely enough, that’s her only nomination. The Princess in Red has not been announced to perform or as a presenter. Whether she’ll attend or not is still up in the air.

On better news, Taylor Swift is announced as a performer for the 56th Annual Grammy Awards.

Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who’s finally back in Canada, we spent most of our holidays sick and are still recovering. I’ll still be watching the People’s Choice awards at least to see Sara Bareilles perform. Strangely enough, this grammy-nominated singer-songwriter is not nominated for a People’s Choice award.

The red carpet pre-show will start at 8pm ET / 7pm CT on ustream. Hopefully, we’ll get to see the Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar arrive. If she does, it will be the very last minute. is being doing video articles on inside each of the Grammy nominations for Album of the Year. Here’s the one for Taylor Swift’s RED:
