Sometimes the best things in life take the longest, and in the case of Kevin McGuire, it took one full year of waiting. After missing out on being Taylor Swift's date to last year's ACM Awards, the 19-year-old -- who has survived a difficult battle with leukemia -- suited up and went to the 2013 ACMs with the star.
There is a happy ending to this story! Last year, New Jersey teen Kevin McGuire, who was suffering from cancer and in need of a bone marrow transplant, asked Taylor Swift to prom via a Facebook campaign. Despite everyone's best efforts, things didn't work out as planned. Luckily for McGuire, he's getting a second chance in more ways than one!
Taylor Swift is all about her fans, but she went above and beyond to make one especially deserving fan's dream come true. At the Charlotte, N.C. stop of her Red Tour on Friday night (March 22), the singer brought a sick 7-year-old girl named Emma Routh onstage with her. It meant so much to her that Emma's family cannot stop gushing about what a heartwarming gesture the country superstar made on her behalf.
If it seems like Taylor Swift and Eric Church are everywhere you look these days, you ain't seen nothin' yet. The two ubiquitous entertainers are not only all over the radio, internet and television, now they're also making their way into the sports world -- sort of. Brody Hoffman, a goalie for the University of Vermont, has placed images of both country singers on either side of his mask, as seen above.
It seems like everything Taylor Swift touches turns to gold. Not only did she have the only triple Platinum album of 2012, and is currently embarked on the enormous RED tour, but she also has the Midas touch when it comes to flipping real estate. The 23-year-old singer recently sold the home she bought in Hyannis Port, Mass. -- near the Kennedy compund -- and made nearly $1 million dollars after owning the house for just seven months.
Not technically Country, but you never know! They could remix it with a banjo part in there somewhere for us. Either way, Miss Taylor is havin' a ball and not caring at all in '22'! There's a lot of girls that can relate and will soon be jamming this tune...
The tragedy of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings is still heavy on the hearts of so many, and there is nothing that can ease the horror of what happened in December 2012. However, there are several celebrities who are stepping out to continue supporting the families of the young victims, with donations to the Music for Newtown Auction. The lovely Taylor Swift has shown her support, donating an autographed electric guitar.
