Swift Outdoes Herself

Remember a couple of weeks ago when Taylor Swift announced she would conduct a marathon 13-hour autograph signing session at the CMA Music Festival? Turns out she did all of that and more.

Swift’s planned “13 Hour Meet & Greet” at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena June 13 began at 8 a.m. and was supposed to wrap at 9 p.m. However, the country star was having so much fun, she kept the party with her fans going until nearly 11 p.m. – almost 15 full hours of meetin’ and greetin’, according to the Tennessean.

“I’m hearing so many amazing stories from people,” Swift said earlier that day. “And I’m seeing a lot of tattoos: Not like biker tattoos, but girls with little ankle tattoos that say ‘Fearless.’”

Fearless is, of course, the name of Swift’s latest best-selling album and the tour that supported it. Turns out the portion of the Bridgestone floor devoted to Swift was filled with “Fearless” tour memorabilia, including outfits and stage props.
