BklrcZ1CEAEVyk4Entertainer of the Year went to George Strait, as predicted. Rightfully so? Or did our girl Taylor get ripped off? Listen up to Episode 128 of Taylor Talk: The Taylor Talk Podcast as we discuss the 49th annual ACM Awards. Maya and Steve watched them on TV, but Adam and Diane attended the awards in person, so they offer a unique perspective that only comes with viewing a show live. Feel free to let us know what you thought of the awards. Enjoy the episode!

Highlights from Episode 128 of Taylor Talk: The Taylor Swift Podcast
Main Discussion: 49th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards
– Congratulations to Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, and Taylor Swift for winning ACM Video of the Year for “Highway Don’t Care”. Listen to our interview with Music Video Director Shane Drake on Episode 62.
– That awkward moment when Adam says he doesn’t like Miranda Lambert and then… well listen to the show & find out what happened 😉
– Was George Strait winning Entertainer of the Year truly fair and unbiased?
– Fun fact: if Taylor Swift wins Entertainer of the Year again, she will be the only female to win it three times. As for the men? Garth Brooks has won it a whopping six times! Conspiracy?

Other Topics
– Taylor is a giver at heart. She visited the Hasbro Children’s hospital with her dad last week.
– If Swifties Ruled The World … there would be nothing but cats on the internet. Wait a second… It has already begun!
– What are Swifties listening to? “Sing” by Ed Sheeran

Mix 94.1 Las Vegas Interviews Grant Mickelson

Grant Mickelson, Taylor Swift’s lead guitarist, sat down with Heather Converse of Mix 94.1 Las Vegas for an exclusive interview. Grant discusses his unique packing style (apparently rolling your clothes prevents wrinkles!) and his obsession with Abraham Lincoln. He revealed that if you look closely at every show, you’ll be able to spot his Abraham Lincoln bobble head doll somewhere on stage. He carries it around everywhere!

Before joining Taylor’s band, Grant had toured with Sara Evens, Carolyn Dawn Johnson, and Lady Antebellum. Grant has been with Taylor Swift for six years, since 2007, and hopefully he will be playing guitar for the Agency for many more years to come!

You can listen to the full interview on Mix 94.1 Las Vegas’ website.
