“So this little bell went off in my head and I automatically decided that Nashville was the place where dreams come true. The place you have to go. That was when I was about 10, and that's when I started the non-stop, 'Hey Mom and Dad, can we move to Nashville?”

GRAND RAPIDS — Superstar Taylor Swift will help country radio station B-93 “freshen up” its Roofsit For Kids charity event Oct. 21 with a concert at Van Andel Arena.
Both the location and the concert are firsts for the station’s annual event.
“We’ve had artists come answer the phone, but we’ve never done a show, per se, like this,” station manager Doug Montgomery said today. “Taylor’s been a great sport to come help us.
“In two years, she’s gone from the little kid I picked up at the airport to being a superstar,” he said, referencing the now-18-year-old’s then-obscure performance at Taste of Grand Rapids in 2006.
Ticket information will be announced at 7:30 a.m. Monday, both on the air and online at B93.com.

Hi all I found a video of Taylor interviewed on the 10 show.
You can watch it here.
She talks about her music, the olympics, her family, her love for cowboy boots, working with the Jonas Brothers, and of course repeated the line (“He’s an amazing guy and anybody would be lucky to be dating him”) when they talked about Joe.
I also found another video from Another Cinderella Story Premiere. This one is from MTV. She talks about her album and Love Story.
She also told MTV about her experience as VMA Red Carpet Correspondent and her upcoming album Fearless. In the same article, she also mentioned that Jonas Brothers’ VMA performance overshadowed Russell Brand’s purity-ring jabs. Below is an excerpt of the article
Random title huh? Taylor posted a new blog, she told us about her journey coming home and how’s it feel to be back home. It’s a nice reading.

My cat snores.
I just got back to Nashville today. I was in LA for some meetings about the preparation for my album launch. And I went to my friend Selena’s movie premiere for “Another Cinderella Story”. That movie rules. I was crying laughing, and she’s so awesome in it. Then I got a day in LA to shop and hang out, which was really cool. Every time I go there, I find more places I love. And I got home today. I landed and stumbled off the plane, half asleep. Then fell asleep in the car on the way home. Then fell asleep again when I got home. Then I woke up a half hour later to go play at the Bluebird Cafe. There was a songwriter’s night set up by the Academy of Country Music honoring the writers of 1 songs, and I was invited to perform. It was so much fun getting back to an acoustic show. While I was plugging my guitar in, I was just thinking about how often I used to do that when I was starting out. I didn’t have a sound guy or a wireless guitar pack or a band.. I just had my guitar, and I’d plug it in myself and play shows acoustic. And I didn’t have an album out, and I didn’t have a record deal, and no one knew the words to the songs I’d written. And so in that moment of plugging in my guitar, I just couldn’t help but smile.. Wow. When I add it all up, how much I’ve been given.. It takes my breath away. Tonight was my favorite show I’ve done in a while. It was cool to see my family too. I’d been on the road for 3 weeks straight without coming home. We were all sitting in the kitchen, talking and laughing. And it was me sitting on the counter like I always do when I’m home, and Austin talking about his school, and dad talking about stocks. My cat goes into an angry rage when I’m gone. She’s like the most miserable, depressed, whining cat ever when I’m not here. She just wanders around the house screaming and howling. I know this because when I’m on the road, my dad calls me and leaves me voicemails of the cat. And so when I’m home she’s extra clingy. She’s laying on my shoulder right now, snoring and purring. Yes, both. It’s an interesting combination of sounds. I’m supposed to mention that the deadline for getting your picture in my album is Thursday. So if you want to do that, go to thetaylornation.com. So I’m loving hearing what you guys think of Love Story! I’m so excited that the video is out, and it’s the 2 overall song on iTunes, 1 country song!! Thank you so much for buying it. I hope it goes to 1, that would be so awesome. I love going on youtube and seeing the different videos and slideshows people have made to that song, it makes me so happy. A lot of people have been asking me what inspired this song.. I think the line that sums up what that song is about is “This love is difficult, but it’s real.” It just means that sometimes you have to fight for love, but sometimes it’s worth fighting for. Like with Romeo and Juliet. Except without the death. :) To me, the song isn’t really about living in a castle and having met your true love at a royal ball. It’s simpler than that. It’s about love being worth it. The hard times, the things that keep you apart, the times when you question it.. I would really like to think that the right love is worth the energy we put into it. So that’s what this song is about. Love and Romeo, and how we fight for those things that we can’t be without. In 1789 or in 2008. Whether you’re 16 or 60. This love is difficult, but it’s real. When I wrote that line, I knew it would be my favorite line to sing every night. And it’s true, every time I sing that, I can’t help but smile.
I also can’t help but smile when my guitarist Paul sings the harmony part on “I’ll be the princess”. (check out the video from when we went to Philadelphia)
Swift’s new project will not be released until November 11th, but fans will have the chance to access four tracks from the album in advance of street date. Beginning on October 14th, the CD’s title track will be available on iTunes, followed by “Hey Stephen” on October 23rd and “You Belong To Me” on November 4th. The lead single, “Love Story,” is available on iTunes now.
Country star Taylor Swift has also caught on. For the upcoming November release of her sophomore CD “Fearless,” Swift, along with her label, hopes to create a picture or video montage for each of the CD’s tracks for YouTube. So far, she’s enjoyed checking out the fan-created postings of her songs on YouTube.
“It’s like having another video,” said Swift, 18. “For me, it’s a chance to see someone else’s take on my music. I embrace that and think it’s cool.”
Also, apparently she regrets that there are too much sex talk instead of music on VMA.
Here’s another video from Hollyscoop. Taylor talked about the Love Story video and how she wrote the song about Romeo and Juliet but she didn’t like the ending of the story so she rewrote it the way she want it.
I added screencaptures from Love Story to the gallery.
Also, I updated the Another Cinderella Story Album. More Taylor and Selena pictures. They seem to get along well.
I also added the picture from the article I posted before from The Observer.

This is a clip from Hollyscoop, they caught up with Taylor at the Another Cinderella Story Premiere and they asked her about Russel Brand made some jokes of the Jonas Brothers’ purity ring at VMA.
Taylor said, “The Jonas brothers are amazing and they have great attitudes about everything, I think the way they’ve handled it has been amazing.”
Philly.com has an article about Rascal Flatts concert in Susquehanna Bank Center, opened by Taylor. Here’s an excerpt.
With an exuberant opening set, fast-rising country-pop star Taylor Swift, confidently prowling the stage in black cowboy boots and a blue metallic mini dress, capped a high-profile week of MTV Video Music Awards and Country Music Association show appearances.
Swift, the tall, blond, Berks County native, and fiddler Caitlin Evanson enhanced Swift’s good-riddance breakup anthem “Picture to Burn” by drumming furiously on garbage cans for a spell.
The 18-year-old singer-songwriter-guitarist, raised in Wyomissing, welcomed the sing-along assistance of ‘tween-to-teen-and-beyond female voices on fresh-sounding tunes from her self-titled and 3.5-million-selling 2006 debut album.
“I’m really happy today,” she told the Camden crowd before playing the just-released track “Love Story” (the first single off her second album, Fearless, due in November). “In less than a day, you made it the number-one country single on iTunes!”
In the rainy parking lot afterward, key lines from the Romeo/Juliet-themed song had already been scrawled in fuchsia lipstick on a car window.
The Observer has a nice article about Taylor that you can read here
We all suffer unrequited crushes at high school. But not many of us turn them into multimillion-dollar-selling songs. Taylor Swift, 18, is the new face of Nashville. Tall, blonde, impossibly leggy, she is a phenomenon in the States – hailed as the country Britney Spears. A paid songwriter since the age of 14, she was the youngest performer ever to write and sing a No 1 country single, 2006′s ‘Our Song’.
