As the guest of honor at Nashville’s Hard Rock Café,[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] Taylor Swift[/lastfm], along with friends and family, celebrated her career bests.
[photogallerylink id=53922 align=left]With a lot to be happy about including the triple-platinum Speak Now and “Mine” going No.1, Friday night at the Hard Rock was a blast.
As usual, Taylor started off speechless, but still had a lot to say:
“I love this town. I love this beautiful industry, and I love that you showed up for us tonight!” exclaimed Taylor. “Thank you! Thank you! I just love you, and I’m having so much fun. Thank you for being the reason I get to!
The music this time around means a lot to her:
“And to be able to make really personal music allows me to have a really personal relationship with my fans. They’re my friends. I’m looking forward to getting back on the road because at every single fan meet-and-greet that we do every night, I have groups of girls come up to me with their cell phones and say, ‘Look what my ex-boyfriend just texted me!’
She is also really excited about the traveling her and her band is about to do:
“We’re about to do some crazy traveling, because we’re about to start the Asia and Europe tour, so I’ve been brushing up on my Japanese, Korean, Italian, Spanish, German and French for talking to the crowd in-between songs,” Taylor added. “I’m really excited about it, and then we come back and go on the U.S. tour. It’s going to be a really busy year, but I’m more than excited about that, and we get to do this because of the people in the room.”
