Taylor Swift opens Dodgers season
Thursday, March 29, 2007
– Taylor Swift will kick off the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball season Monday, performing a live concert with her full band and singing the National Anthem. The 30-minute concert will be held Dodger Stadium and precede the traditional stealth fighter jets, fireworks and first pitch.
"I can't believe I have been given the chance to perform at the Los Angeles Dodgers opening day," Swift said. "The Dodgers are such a great organization with so many talented players, and it is an honor to share a part of the season with them. I am also excited to play in front of thousands of fans on the west coast who might not otherwise have the opportunity to see me perform. I have so many happy memories of going to baseball games as a little girl. I am really looking forward to it."
Swift's self-titled album debuted in the number 3 spot on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart based on the top 5 success of "Tim McGraw" and was RIAA certified gold after just 13 weeks.
Swift's second single, "Teardrops on My Guitar," is the most added single on country radio for the fifth week in a row.
