Country music. Pi Beta Phi. Guitar. Football. Dancer. Loving Life.
I've had the time of my life with you...
I'm Mel. Taylor came into my life in 2007 when I first heard Teardrops On My Guitar, she's been with me every step of my life since then.
I'm 2 and a half weeks younger than her so I feel like the two of us have grown up together.
I saw her for the first time in September 2009 and I knew it wouldn't be the last. That night was one of the best of my entire life. I was in an awful place after facing one of the most difficult situations of my life a few months earlier. 2 days before that show I realized exactly what I had lost. For some reason that night she sang Change, complete with that famous speech. She didn't sing it at the two shows before mine, but she sang it that night. I've never needed anything more and that was the start of my moving on.
Since then I've seen her 10 more times. There have been roadtrips, flights, emotional nights, tears, laughs, and incredible memories. I tried for so long to meet Taylor and finally on 8.12.13 my dream came true. There was a lot of heartbreak on the journey to get there and if I told you everything that I had to go through to get to that moment you wouldn't believe it. It took a lot longer than I ever would have thought but it was worth every second I had to wait. Taylor was more genuine and caring than I ever could have hoped. After telling her my story and giving her a letter about how much that night in September 2009, 4 years and a week to the day nonetheless, Taylor played change for me again. I didn't ask because I knew she had said no in the past, but for some reason she decided to play it that night and that is a moment I will never forget.
I now have so much more to thank Taylor for, for giving me two of my best friends, the new direction I'm taking my life in, and success to smile about. She changed my life in ways she probably can't even imagine but I'm grateful I finally had a chance to say Thank You.
Talk to me, I'd love to meet you!

I’ll start from the beginning. I work for a radio station and Taylor played where I live back in March. I had been talking to our program director about the show and how I’d seen her a lot of times and he asked if I had ever met her. I told him no but that it was the only meet and greet I really cared about anymore/my dream. He basically said I should have told him 24 hours before and he...
