Hope you don’t mind sharing, Taylor Nation. Light on spoilers.

It’s a busy week for the Lightning On Her Feet singer/songwriter as she draw a crowd on 15,000 to the Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, NC on Monday, June 8. According to CLTure, she made the city glow brighter in her wake. She would again perform the very next day, June 9, at the PNC Arena in Raleigh for a sold out crowd according to News Observer.

Now I can really call her the Sparkly Dressed, take a look at the pic on your right. Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who’s tired from flying in from Montreal to Nashville, we don’t have Taylor’s energy (nobody does). The reviews of Taylor’s concert have been amazingly positive ones.

Very spoiler-heavy is CLTure‘s review which is an almost full recap of her concert in Charlotte (so click carefully). You’ll have to wait until July until I can do the play-by-play myself. By the way, Jack Antonoff was in the audience positively thrilled at what his amazing contributions have become. I specially would love to know what he thinks about I Wish You Would.

I love that News Observer proclaims her staying power during their review of Raleigh. I also loved this phrase from David Menconi, “No wonder she still likes to pause onstage, take in the whole scene with a sidelong glance and smile mischievously. You would, too.” It’s really obvious to us her fans, but everyone else seems to need a reminder.

Here’s a fan collage that the Queen of Sparks got to see at the PNC Arena in Raleigh.

And finally, here’s Shake It Off as a lip dub made by Cinnaminson High School. You want to see this.

Up next! Philadelphia! Cologne, Germany! I get some sleep! Ok, not that last one.

She makes us proud, Taylor Nation.

The 71st Golden Globe Awards will air live at 8pm ET / 5pm PT today Sunday, January 12 on NBC. Here at the Swift Agency, a guy who never ceases to smile every time that he remembers that Taylor giggled at being called the Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar, we’re rooting for T-Swizzle. Yes, the odds are stacked against her. Not only is she going to go head to head against Justin Timberlake, she’s also against Bono. Major leagues there.

Taylor Swift and Jack Antonoff are nominated for Best Original Song for “Sweeter than Fiction” from the soundtrack of the movie “One Chance”. Her chances of winning are… unknown. She’s only being nominated once before and didn’t win. She’s attending, based on the Golden Globes instagram. She’s supposed to sit at Harvey Weinstein’s table alongside him and Meryl Streep.

Here’s a clip featuring Taylor Swift about writing “Sweeter Than Fiction”.

Don’t worry, Taylor Nation. I’m not going to sing 🙂

The Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar (and dress to match), Miss Taylor Swift, is finally 24 years old today. Or she was if you’re going by Australia time. Or perhaps that means she’s not going to grow up. Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who grew old but never up, we’re wishing her the best day today.

It’s another year, and it was one heck of a RED Tour. It was just fitting that the best thing to do was to play it again and start over… all over the world. Ahem, Canada was first… ok well, second after the US. Story of our lives, my fellow Canucks. New Zealand and Australia opened the second international (or the more international) second leg of the RED Tour which will go into a brief hiatus after this Saturday only to recommence on February.

The Sparkly Dressed is 24 karats of pure gold. She was just nominated for the Golden Globes along with Jack Antonoff for the song “Sweeter Than Fiction” from the soundtrack of the movie One Chance. Here’s the Enchantress doing the best version of “Sweeter Than Fiction”: just Tay and her guitar.

Happy Sunday, Taylor Nation.

Not a lot of news today. Well, there are rumors a plenty, no shortage of those any time soon. Those don’t go here. Not even  in the comments. Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who cares about what Taylor Swift says, we put what other people say about T-Swizzle in a category of considerable less priority, often depicted like a bin with a recycle symbol on it.

A concert video for “The Last Time” came out November 15, using footage from the RED Tour in Sacramento, California back in August 28, 2013. Gary Lightbody from Snow Patrol was the special guest that night. Here’s the official TaylorSwiftVEVO video:
