Well why don’t we just start this Monday in tears?
Last night at the Country Music Awards, Andrea Swift presented her daughter with the Milestone Award, telling the audience, “I’ve watched this Milestone artist from the time she was a tangled hair little girl growing up on our farm, full of imagination and creativity.”
“And ever since then, her favourite thing in the world to do has been to write a song, tell a story, play a guitar, or the piano,” she continued. “And I’ve seen those things carry her through every emotion, every experience in her life. Good and bad.”
Including boys. (Especially boys?) Andrea went on to give a little insight into the beginnings of “Love Story,” which are exactly as awesome as you imagine them to be.
“…Like the time she was 17 years old and her dad and I strongly disapproved of a young man, and rightfully so, ” she said. “But she was mad, she was real mad, and she went into her room and she closed the door. She came out about an hour later with a song called ‘Love Story.'”
MAN. And with the recent news that Andrea has been diagnosed with cancer, this makes the relationship between Taylor and her Mom even more precious. Get better, Mama Swift, and also please keep talking about Taylor at award shows.
