Five minutes of fame with Taylor Swift

Me & Darlynn with Taylor Swift
One week ago today, I received a phone call from one of my best friends.

Darlynn - "Hey, would you like to come to Taylor Swifts Concert with me and meet her?"
Megan -  "Um.....sure!!!!"

I have a few Taylor Swift songs I secretly sing in the shower, yet I was not a die hard fan. I say that past tense because I am now a major fan of Miss. Swift, both personally and on stage. I have met my fair share of celebrity's thanks to my past career and Darlynn's career. We have met everyone from Tom Cruise to Tim Tebow. Yet I never expected to meet Taylor Swift, sit with her for 5 minutes and leave the conversation thinking, Taylor Swift was the nicest, down to earth A-list celebrity I have ever met and I want to be her friend.

Darlynn and I got to enjoy some time in Club Red where Taylor met up with us. We were told later on that Club Red was the location where a few lucky fans would hand selected to come back here post show and eat pizza, drink soda and talk relationships with Taylor and her dancers. Also, the first row of every concert is not for sale - ever.. It goes to military and government (police/fire dept) families who would not be able to bring their families to a show. A few lucky fans could also be upgraded prior to the shoe into those seats. We sat 2 rows above that lucky row.

Taylor welcomed us with a huge hug (she's a hugger). We talked about shoes and a few other girly things. After our 5 minutes with her, we headed off for a backstage tour hosted by Mamma Swift, AKA Taylors Mom. We happened to be in presence of Momma Swift's college friends. It was truly surreal. No pictures were allowed on the backstage tour, sorry friends. I was beyond impressed at the amount of input Taylor Swift has on her shows and that she does not lip sync or use auto tune, ever ever ever.

As a woman nearing her mid-thirties (ouch, that hurts to say out loud), Taylor Swift's Red Concert was one of the best performances I have ever witnessed in my life and trust me, I have concert stubs which would make a few heads spin. She was magical on stage and really engaged her crowd. If you find yourself going to a Taylor Swift show, do yourself a favor, bring ear plugs. She has some screaming fans!

I could go on and on but figure you would prefer to see photos from our third row seats. Here is a collaboration from this amazing night. Thank you Taylor for a memorable evening.

  3. I adore her! I love how you fall in love with some artists AT their concerts. I was the same way with 30 Seconds to Mars and My Chemical Romance. I liked them, but I wasn't a HUGE fan until I saw them live. :)
