Taylor Connect


I’m Ashley, I’m 25 and I live in Chicago. Ask any of my friends or coworkers to describe me and I guarantee “Taylor Swift” will be the first words out of their mouth. I’ve been a fan since 2006, but Taylor and the entire Swiftie community started to mean so much more to me during the Speak Now Tour. Inspired to be Fearless, I decided to fly to Kentucky by myself to go to the Lousiville show on 10.11.11. I did not know a single person, but sat outside the arena all day and by the end of it had a bunch of awesome new friends. I started getting more active on TC and Twitter and now know all these amazing people that I would never have known were it not for our Taylor connection.

In April 2013 I co-founded the podcast “Swiftcast” – a free show on iTunes all about Taylor and her fans. Check us out on TC - http://taylorswift.com/users/swiftcast13

After the RED tour, I’ll have seen Taylor in concert 17 times.

I’m finally meeting Taylor for the first time on 9/7/13 in Saint Paul, MN and I can’t wait to hug her and thank her for being exactly who she is, and the person I can always depend on to make me happy no matter what. I love her so much.

I work in marketing for a college search website and love my job, but the music industry is my passion and I’m hoping to one day work on the marketing and promotion side of a record label or music company. Nashville is my favorite place in the world and I try to go there whenever I can.

I love glitter, coffee, headbands, driving with the windows down, concerts in general, and all of you on TC :) I’d love to talk to you!

  1. I’ll never forget the first time I heard the name Taylor Swift. It was summer 2007. I had just finished my freshman year of college and was dealing with the breakup of my first significant relationship. I was on the phone with my friend one night explaining how I felt about that situation, and he said “This reminds me of a song I just heard” which was Tim McGraw. From that day on I...

    Hi! Just wanted to tell you what a nice thing you're doing giving away RED tickets! I'm not entering, but I just really wanted to let you know that you're a very good person! It's nice to know that there are kind and generous people in this world who reach out to those in need :)

    Hey there Swiftie! So as you may have seen on the forums or in my blogs, I'm writing to you today to personally invite you to join me in a fun little project that is already well under way.

    To make a long story short (and if you want the long, detailed version you can check out the official project page in my blogs): We, meaning myself and hundreds of Swifties from Taylor Connect are currently in the process of making Official Unofficial Lyric Video for the song "Red". Why, you might ask? To both celebrate the dawn of the Red era and to show the one and only Taylor Swift just what all of this means to us, the fans of course!! After everything she does for us, this will be our way of doing something back for her.

    Interested? Excited? Confused? Tired? Fighting an uncontrollable urge to scream out loud that you are, in fact, a little teapot (handle, spout and all!)? Well, first things first, the best way to understand what we're doing is to see the original inspiration for this project, courtesy of the folks behind the Broadway Musical "Title of Show"


    Now, take that idea and apply it to Red!! So far, the creativity people have been bringing to the table has been beyond incredible and now I would like to offer you your own chance to get in on the action. Just respond to this message expressing your interest, and you can be a part of this amazing opportunity to unite with your fellow Swifties as, with one voice, we celebrate the dawn of the Red era!! Let's give this album and the beautiful artist behind it the welcome they deserve! You might want to hurry though: there are officially less than 25 words left to give out and they are going FAST! So send me a message and join up!
