Seacrest gave Swift a warm welcome, explaining how she wanted to be a part of the opening in Nashville.
I have somebody very special that I want to introduce to you. When she found out that we were doing this here in her hometown she said, ‘How can I be a part of it? I would love to come see the kids.’ Perhaps you’ll recognize my friend, ladies and gentleman – Taylor Swift.
Swift gave a touching speech and they cut the ribbon with the help of some of the patients!
Recently I had the chance to speak with Country Artist, Aaron Parker. In November 2015, I was able to exclusively premiere his song “Left In A Bottle.” You can check out that interview and song here. I also included Parker on my ‘10 Country Music Artists Who Can Change Radio in 2016‘ list.
Since we last spoke, Parker has a single out called “I’d Go Right Now.” In part 1 of our interview he talks about the writing process of the song and his inspiration for the song.
“It’s really about a simpler time in your life, that you don’t know that you don’t really have a lot of cares. You think that you have a lot of cares…. but it’s not big at all.”
He went on to say how most cares were just about your test on Friday, which let’s be honest, back in our school days, that is stressful! Now, being older and having to worry about grown up bills etc, he has a new take on life.
LISTEN TO OUR EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH AARON PARKER PART 1/2
One of the things I have stated before about Parker is his unique voice and take on Country Music. I am so thankful that in part 2 of our interview I was able to get his thoughts on being a Male in Country Music and getting music played on Country Radio. There has been a lack of more female artists on Country Radio and Parker agrees that it is easier to be a male in the Country Music business. He also thinks times are changing and some of the current artists are paving the way for change.

Taylor Swift is back from her vacation with boyfriend Calvin harris and is spending some quality time with her mom. She stated in a recent interview that she calls her mom 3x a day when they are a part. I bet the time away while on vacation was hard, but alas they have been reunited.
Swift posted a video with the caption
If you look closely you can even see some quality childhood photos of Taylor and her brother Austin.
Swift shared another video of the dog while she was trying to get Swift’s whipped cream.
“My mom’s dog is named Kitty.
And yet, she is nothing like a cat.”
