I don’t know about you, Taylor Nation…

Here at the Swift Agency, still just a guy who’s feeling 22… hundred years old , we’re happy to once again attend the CMA Fest 2013. I actually don’t have my ticket yet. I’m counting on a very good friend who might have a ticket for me. No pressure or anything. I might have to learn to pace myself.

The CMA Fest 2013 just revealed a ton of names of their lineup! Yes, it’s official: Taylor Swift will perform at the CMA Fest 2013. Also performing will be Lady Antebellum, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Florida Georgia Line, Hunter Hayes, Little Big Town, Jake Owen, Brad Paisley, The Band Perry, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban and Zac Brown Band.

On other news, here’s a behind the scenes at the Enchantress’ recent photoshoot with ELLE magazine.

On even more exciting news, Taylor Connect users that joined the site before February 22 can now enter a chance to purchase tickets for the best seats in the house. Starting this Wednesday, March 6, Taylor is offering pit and premium tickets for the RED Tour directly to the fans of Taylor Connect. I think this is a good opportunity for a lot of fans who didn’t have tickets, or in the case of the cities that have more than one show fans can now try for an additional concert. Extra tickets, specially ones that are limited to fans, are always a good thing.

Rock on Taylor Nation,

There’s a lot of news out there, but a lot of it is gossip and rumor that is completely made up. Here at the Swift Agency, still one guy getting you the news amidst all the gossip, we  shy away from posts that seem to have no source whatsoever. That being said, sometimes I have to get creative.

The Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar was at the MusiCares charity signing booth as part of one of the 55th Grammy Awards events held at STAPLES Center on February 8, 2013 in Los Angeles, California. Original story through the meta information from the original picture at Getty Images. How’s that for being creative (still more reliable that Us Weekly, huh). The Enchantress is in Los Angeles on rehearsals for the opening number for the 55th Grammy Awards.

On other news, take another look behind the scenes at the photoshoot for Disney as Taylor Swift channels Rapunzel for photographer Annie Leibovitz. I posted an article with video just last month, but this is a new one. Let’s go to the video!

The Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar will take the stage at the 55th Grammy Awards live on February 10 on CBS. She has three nominations: Record of the Year for We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, Best Country Duo/Group Performance with The Civil Wars and Best Song Written For Visual Media both for Safe and Sound with The Civil Wars.

The Princess in Red is appearing on the cover and the inside pages of ELLE for March 2013. There’s some great shots in there, but so far most are scans. I’ll wait a bit to see if some originals show up. Meanwhile, have a look at T-Swizzle on the cover!

Taylor Swift on the cover of Elle

Back in December last year, Taylor stepped out of a photoshoot for Elle magazine and caused a commotion. Here’s the previous blog entry back then.. Her curls were gone and her hair had been straightened out. Taylor has said more than once she would never straighten her hair like she did when she was younger.. for a guy. That doesn’t mean she wouldn’t do it for herself though.

We finally get to see the pictures of that photoshoot when Elle comes out on March 16. Besides the two cover editions and the inside pictures that uncover the straight look, the Fearless One also shared with the magazine what she thinks of the media scrutiny she’s now constantly undergoing, among other things.

“I’ve had countless opportunities to do some really bad things,” Taylor told Elle. “And then people start combing through everything I do trying to find the next mistake and misperception, which leads to more scrutiny. Like, if I go to a bar, even if I’m not drinking, who’s to say that a source isn’t going to say that I was doing something I shouldn’t have been doing? So it’s not only about your own moral compass, but the moral compasses of other people that you don’t know.”

Here’s an inside look from Access Hollywood. Thanks to TSFan23 via YouTube for posting!

Taylor’s up for two awards at the Kids’ Choice Awards: Favorite Female Singer and Favorite Song. You can vote for her as often as you’d like so go do it! Vote here.

Fan voting for ACM’s Entertainer of the Year begins on Thursday, April 1 at VoteACM.com. Fan voting for Entertainer of the Year will close during the third hour of the LIVE broadcast. Taylor is nominated, so mark that date in your Calendar so you can start voting then.

Taylor starts the Fearless Tour in Tampa, FL tonight March 4! She’s trying to start a theme trend. Tonight, the trend would be the You Belong With Me video. Hopefully it catches on 🙂
