Swift sings and signs

Sunday, June 13, 2010 – Taylor Swift was slated to hold a 13-hour meet and greet with her fans Sunday, but it didn't turn out that way. Due to a large turnout, Swift extended hours past the slated 9 p.m. close until late in the evening.

By 5 p.m., about 10,000 came through with Swift spending time with more than 2,000, according to Peter Cooper of the Tennessean. Not everyone who showed up was guaranteed access to Swift.

During the afternoon, Swift also gave a four -song acoustic performance for anyone showing up at Bridgestone Arena. Although the event took place during the Country Music Association Music Festival, the Swift event was free and open to the public.

Swift marked each passing hour with a mark on her arm> She also received lot soft bracelets form her fans along with dispensing many hugs in return.

While Swift was spending a lot of time wither fans on Sunday, that did not come close to the record - Garth Brooks holds that by singing for 24 straight hours.

Swift wrote all 14 songs here, which like her other albums tend to deal with relationships that have gone south. Swift's songwriting always has been one of her strengths, and that continues to be the case here - both lyrically and musically. Put simply, Swift knows a lot about penning ...
CD review - Fearless Taylor Swift took the county world by storm with her huge selling debut and its five hit singles. With a huge marketing push and myspace, Swift was on her way. Kind of like an Avril Lavigne for the teen female country set. Sophomore slump? There's no indication of that. Swift once again writes her material - all 13 songs here with help sometimes from Liz Rose, Colbie Caillat and John Rich. Swift writes of what she knows about - relationships and teen love come and gone in songs speak to her fans. ...
