Say what you want to say, Taylor Nation.

Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who only watched the 40th Annual People’s Choice Awards for Sara Bareilles’ performance, we didn’t really stuck around afterwards. Seems the country awards were not featured at all this year. Not worries, the Blonde With The Sparkly RED Guitar still managed to win for Favorite Country Music Artist.

Additional congratulations are in order for Tim McGraw for winning Favorite Country Music Icon. Neither of both country music categories were announced during the broadcast.

The Sparkly Dressed didn’t attend. She did tweeted an Instagram video about receiving an MTV award though.

Also recently announced, the Princess in Red will be performing at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards. T-Swizzle’s next nomination is for Best Original Song for “Sweeter Than Fiction” at the 71st Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, January 12.

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.

Radio.com 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:

Tay is going to need more shelves, Taylor Nation.

Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who doesn’t have as many years as Taylor has awards, we’ve had a rough week but probably yours was no picnic either. Let’s all be happy for the weekend and get you some news! Guess what, the Princess in Red has more nominations coming up. Anybody surprised? Not me 🙂

The 2014 People’s Choice Nominations are now open. Our Princess in Red is named as Favorite Female Artist, Favorite Pop Artist and  Favorite Country Artist. Since you can add your own nominations, might I suggest RED as Album of the Year and “I Knew You Were Trouble” as Song of the Year. Completely up to you though. VOTE NOW through October 31st. The final nominations are announced November 5. The 40th People’s Choice Awards takes place January 8, 2014.

The 2013 Billboard Touring Awards take place at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City, NY on November 14. Taylor Swift’s RED Tour is nominated for the Top Package Award. Taylor is also nominated for the Eventful Fans’ Choice Award, which is fan-voted but I haven’t found anywhere you can vote yet.

Taylor Swift performs at the Centrepoint Winter Whites Gala at Kensington Palace in London, UK on November 26. Tickets were made available to only 200 people. Also headlining that night is Bon Jovi.. This means she will be in London around this date.

Lots of dates, eh? No, you don’t have to remember all of them. I’ll remind you when they are approaching. Don’t worry, this won’t be on the test. Thanks to faithful readers Thomas and 13SparksFly13 for the heads up 🙂

Don’t forget to VOTE for the Blonde With The Sparkly RED Guitar for the American Music Awards. All legal residents of the continental United States, Hawaii and Alaska may vote. The vote window opens at 8:00:00 am ET on October 10, 2013 and closes at 11:59:59pm ET November 15, 2013. The Best New Artist voting is open until show time. You can read the voting rules FAQ here.
