Taylor Connect

Hjessie

Hi, I am Hannah from the UK. I have been a swiftie since 2007. I first discovered her whilst watching the CMA awards in 2007 in a hotel room with my boyfriend and she performed OUR SONG, I fell in love with the song right away and went to the nearest music store the next day and was lucky to find an import of her first album. This was the uncensored one so now I know its no longer available, i am happy to have it.

I missed Taylor's first UK show by a day as had no internet for three months whilst moving home, so you can imagine my frustration when I found out.

I first saw Taylor on the Paul O Grady chat show in London I think it was the 6th May 2009 (need to look at my ticket) and then met her afterwards which was amazing. There was not a huge amount of people there so I was lucky
if you watch this video you can hear me say that I have waited two years to meet her and she replies something like "that's so nice i'd hug you but my skirt might blow up"

I got her cover of Rolling stone magazine signed ( the first one)


I then saw Taylor perform at Londons shepherd's bush that night. It was amazing.

I then saw her the following night again at Shepherd's Bush and managed to get a set list.

Later on that year I saw Taylor Again in august at V Festival. The night before she had an announcement on her facebook that the first 50 fans to go to a certain place get a meet and greet. This was taken off facebook literally 5 mins later.

When I turned up at V Festival they said they knew nothing about it. I then watched her set which was amazing and got right to the front and even got on tv, though I didn't want to haha. After her set I went back to the so called meet and greet area and they still denied any knowledge. A Family then arrived and asked same question and they directed them to start a queue, I couldn't believe it, so I just joined the queue anyway.

We then got our passes :) but there was hardly anyone there, probably 25 people if that. So we got to meet her again ( my boyfriend and me) we got a Tim McGraw poster signed and a 10 x 8 pic. We also got a photo each, I then met Andrea and got a photo and a guitar pick. I spoke to both Taylor and her mum about CMA fest as I was going the following year and they told me how amazing Nashville was and Taylor had something big planned.

In Nov 2009 I saw Taylor in London for the full Fearless tour. I also won tickets and meet and greets to her Manchester show.
The day of her Manchester show our car broke down so we had to hire a car, we live three hours away so took a while to get there. Five mins before arriving we were told the meet and greet was cancelled, I was devastated. We went through so much just to get there. Still the show was amazing.

I also saw Taylor perform on her second Paul O Grady show appearance in Nov 2009

In 2010 my boyfriend and I went to America. We stopped off at Washington DC and saw Taylors Fearless tour again. We got to meet Gloriana who were amazing and so nice.

We then went to the CMA Fest and got to see Taylor perform at the 13 hour meet and greet though we didn't win a meet and greet pass.

I Oct 2010 I saw Taylor perform on her third appearance on the Paul O Grady show.

In March 2011 I saw the Speak now Tour in:
Birmingham and London

I won meet and greet passes for the London show and held a comp on here for someone to go with me. Was amazing and she was Lovely again.


Both shows were amazing.

I have since been to the RED Tour

1st Feb, 2nd Feb, 4th Feb and 10th Feb.

I am going back to Nashville in May/June for CMA Fest, not sure if Taylor will do anything there, hope so

    Reading your profile, I can't believe you had so much luck! :o I wish Taylor would come to the Netherlands more often, but it doesn't seem likely.

    Hello there. You may or may not know who I am, so allow me to introduce myself. My name is Vince Favetta. You might know me from one of the many blogs I’ve written, or you might have gotten a message from me a while back asking you to participate in what became the “Red Lyric Video”. Today, however, I am coming to you to talk about a brand new project.

    You already know this if you’ve ever been anywhere near my page or read a single word of stuff I’ve written, but four years ago I had a chance encounter with Taylor, that, in many ways, changed my life. After all, it was that very event that brought me to Taylor Connect a while back, and so many people here have become so much a part of my life’s ever-expanding story. But from the moment I created my very own page, I had a dream. I dreamt that one day I would get the chance to look Taylor in the eye and thank her for all she’s done to me. Sure, I could write a letter or just type out a message, but I believe that there are some words that take on a whole new meaning when you look someone in the eye and say them. Things like “Thank you”. Things like “I love you”. Things like “You changed everything”.

    With that goal in mind, I began to create a project that would allow all of the Swifites that had become just as much authors in this story to help write the next chapter. To decide whether or not I should get to see Taylor again and thank her. But as the project expanded, as people came in and brought countless ideas to the table, something dawned on me. The project became about the words that lie at the heart of it all. Thank you. We owe so many people so much, and I wanted to give people a chance to say it. I, for one, have found that more often than not we may think the words, but we never actually say them. We never speak now. We love our parents but we don't thank them for the immeasurable acts they do for us. We love our friends but we never thank them for adding untold beauty to our lives every day. We love Taylor, but we never get to thank her for giving us the means to express our deepest selves.

    And so, ultimately, The Thank You project has been born. In this very first stage, it has been set to an event page of Facebook, the link to which will be on the bottom of this post. On this page, when you click the "join" button, you are saying to your friends and to the world that you WILL speak now. You won't just keep the words in your head, but you WILL say the seemingly simple words that can change a life for good. Then, use the page and do just that. Thank the people you love. Thank your friends and your family, and tell them all the things you feel. And thank Taylor and her music. Thank her for a song, a lyric. Speak now and say how a lyric or an attitude has done so much for you. Then, invite other to do the same. Share the page on your own personal means of social media, be it Facebook, instagram, Twitter or whatever you use. Being a light in the world is a beautiful thing, but sharing that light with others is a miracle.

    So that is what I ask of you. Whether you have read anything I’ve ever written or have never even heard my name until this message, this is what I ask of you. Join the event, leave your Thanks, and Share the page. Join, Thank and Share. Steps as simple as the words themselves, yet potentially just as powerful. Speak now and let those people know that they are appreciated. That they are cherished. That they are loved. Whether it's the friend you see every day or the artist this site is meant for, every single person deserves to hear the words.

    Thank you. As promised, here is the link to the page.
