Even though you have to, please try to never grow up, Taylor Nation.
There once was this little girl named Taylor from Wyomissing, Pennsylvania that left her Christmas tree farm to seek out a musical career in Nashville. This past July 13 and 14, she went back to her home state and performed at the Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. In her own words, she will never change but she will never stay the same either.
All that to lead to the first night, when she said this speech.
The Sparkly Dressed chose “Never Grow Up” as the surprise song for her first night in Philadelphia. I’m pretty sure she had her fans in tears during this one. You can’t really survive those lyrics.
The Enchantress had another surprise in store for the Philly crowd on the second night, when she chose to sang “Treacherous”.
Unbeknownst to her, the second evening had a surprise for Taylor as her flying chariot broke during “Delicate”. So, what did the Forever and Always Fearless One chose to do in such predicament?
Well, time to pull out a song out of the vault and go acapella. “Our Song” was the easy pick.
She still had time so she then went into an impromptu performance of “Wildest Dreams”.
I know some might feel like there’s a part of the concert that gets nixed out of the experience when things break down. But sometimes you get a lot more than you expected. Seeing T-Swizzle just ad lib and then randomly pick a song from thin air is worth more than what you pay for.
