The CMA Awards are tonight. Country music’s biggest night. All the biggest stars in one place. I’m lucky enough to say I’ve met a few of em’ too. One time I even met Taylor Swift… sort of…..
It was waaaaay back when she was first getting started and making the rounds at local radio stations. She was probably 15 years old at the time. She had just got done doing the morning show at a station I was working for when I noticed that she had left her guitar tuner sitting in the studio. So I grabbed it and ran down to the elevator to give it back to her. She smiled and said “aw thank’s darlin’ ” as the elevator doors closed in my face.
After that, she went on to become one of biggest stars on all of music. I like to think she couldn’t have done it without that guitar tuner. So I’m gonna go ahead and take credit for all of her success. Maybe one day she’ll write a song about me 🙂
