Taylor Swift is full of love for her current hometown of Nashville, including fellow Nashville residents Faith Hill and Kenny Chesney.
“[Faith]’s been my idol since I saw her on both VH1 and CMT when I was about 10," Taylor tells Nashville Lifestyles . “I loved how she was taking country music to bigger audiences, and her grace in the spotlight. Since I put out my first album, Faith has been a welcoming and warm presence in my life, time after time. She sends flowers on my birthday and sent me cookies when I got sick.”
Kenny is also a favorite. "He’s so supportive, and always makes sure I know he’s in my corner. He sends little notes of encouragement, and I know I can ask him for advice any time. These are two people who had always been my heroes for their career accomplishments, and when I met them, they became my heroes for their characters."
Taylor also names the Ryman Auditorium, trinket shop Gilchrist & Gilchrist, Target and Anthropologie as a few of her favorite Nashville haunts.
