Taylor's Little Party
It’s tough to pin Taylor Swift down, even for her record label, which held a private dinner last night (March 17) in Nashville to celebrate her successful singles and albums.
Normally these types of celebratory events are held on a quarterly basis or maybe a couple times a year, but because Taylor has been so busy between her tour in the U.S., her tour overseas, her television appearances and her movie appearances, among other things, the intimate dinner party was held to celebrate her achievements over the last two years, including four No. 1 records ("Should¹ve Said No," "Love Story," "White Horse," and "You Belong With Me") and 13 million in album sales combined for her first album, Taylor Swift, and Fearless.
Held at a Nashville area restaurant, the dinner party included Taylor’s mom, dad and brother, fellow songwriters (including Liz Rose and John Rich), her band, her publishers, her record label and various industry leaders, not to mention a Country Weekly insider.
There were speeches and presentations galore, but at the end of the night Taylor had the last word. “I just hope you know how happy you’ve made me,” she told those in attendance.“I’m proud of the people this happened to along with me. This was not wasted on us, we all appreciate it so much. We’ve had a lot change for us.
"I’ve seen a lot of you get new cars," she added with a wide smile and to uproarious laughter, "but other than that, you’re the same people I’ve always known."
