Taylor Swift’s Nashville Performance Gets #meta With A Grand Ole Opry Shirt

In LA, she brought out special guests to duet with, including Cher Lloyd , Tegan and Sara , and Ellie Goulding , and for each of those performances, she wore a different shirt celebrating LA. The first, while covering “Want U Back” with Chery Lloyd, was a play on the iconic “I <3 NY" shirt, but instead of NY, it said LA. Hey LA, get your own motto: I think "I <3 Traffic" or "I <3 Beautiful Weather Year-Round" are available. Anyway, the heart was also sparkly because, well, LA is all about ~sparkle~. The second t-shirt, for her performance with Tegan and Sara, was a light blue number from Kitson (#SO #LA), that had "Hello Los Angeles" emblazoned across the front. Her final LA t-shirt was for her performance of "Anything Could Happen" with Ellie Goulding: it was red with "HOLLYWOOD" printed across the front in rhinestones. So, which does Swifty love more, meta t-shirts or rhinestones? Does she love both equally? She has two more shows at the Grand Ole Opry, so we're eager to see if she makes more nods to Nashville on her clothes. Nashville is, after all, her adopted hometown .
Taylor Swift plays final show of 3 nights at Bridgestone Arena
– Taylor Swift has come back to her hometown in a big way. Aboutten semi-trucks with the Taylor Swift tour line the streets of downtown beginning Thursday and continuing through Saturday. Swiftwill wrapup the North American part of her “Red Tour” with her final hometown concert Saturday evening. With tens of thousands of fans descending on the streets of Nashville, the cost of parking at area lots is running as high as $25. “It’s kind of ridiculous because they take advantage of that. It’s normally $5 or $10 dollars at any other event. Even hockey games, it’s $15 or $20,” said Christa Evans from Nashville. “We are from a little town, and the most traffic you have is five cars at a red light. Here you’re stuck for an hour so that is like nothing we have at all,” said Haley Dison, aTaylor Swift fan. Swift sold 1.2 million copies of her Red Album in the first week of its release. Luke Bryan made a guest appearance during Thursday’s concert, singing “I Don’t Want this Night to End” with Swift. Each night Swift welcomes a surprise guest performer to sing at her show. “Not only is this my hometown, this is one of the craziest crowds that we play, so it just made sense[to play three nights], so I am just thrilled,” Swift said.
Jeff Skinner bestows jersey upon Taylor Swift, ignoring NHL curse (Photo)
Hes also an avowed Taylor Swift fan. So, given the opportunity to grow the game one person at a time, Skinner proudly gave her his hockey jersey. And by proudly we mean completely naive to the potential ramifications of doing so. View gallery . In a related story, Taylor Swift released a new track detailing how she felt receiving a hockey jersey was true love until she found out it was a replica and shes lying on the cold hard ground and boo-hoo. Shortly after this photo was taken, Kayne West bum-rushed the stage and proclaimed he’d let her finish but the Hartford Whalers were the best team of all-time. The previously mentioned ramifications for Jeff Skinner are, in fact, a part of Taylor Swift hockey lore. In 2009, members of the Pittsburgh Penguins gave her a SWIFT 09 jersey . Those members were Max Talbot, Jordan Staal, Alex Goligoski and Tyler Kennedy. Four years later, all four were ex-Penguins, disappearing from the photo like the McFly family as Ms. Swift clutches her sweater.
