Taylor Swift — SUPER QUOTE
Monday, April 14, 2008 — by Wow Jones
We here at The Wow Jones Report are always on the lookout for popular artist’s observations on their lives and careers. If these observations come in the form of a snappy, clever and vivid memorable quote, all the better. Check The Wow Jones Report’s archive for other examples of Super Quotes.
In this weekend’s USA Weekend (Taylor’s Swift Rise” by Dennis McCafferty April 11-13, 2008), I came across a cover story on “Nashville’s hottest young singer,” Taylor Swift.
Article is fine. Nice quotes as well. When talking about going on tour with
Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts and George Strait; she reveals an astute, young mind.
For example, with Kenny Chesney, she says;
“Kenny is up at the crack of dawn, walking around the venue, getting to know everyone, from the soundcheck guys to the people who sell the souvenirs to the fans.” — Taylor Swift on Kenny Chesney
Smart girl, that Taylor Swift. I wonder, how many other artists have the wherewithal to even think about the vendors who sell souvenirs to fans at the venues they perform in? How many entertainers are professional enough to perform soundchecks on TIME and are committed to providing a fantastic show? Apparently Kenny Chesney is, and perhaps Taylor Swift is as well.

P.S. Special mention goes to a reader named Rick who a few months back, after leaving a comment, privately sent a DETAILED and INSIGHTFUL email to me that made the case for the beautiful and talented Taylor Swift after seeing her perform in Sioux City. Thanks Rick.
UPDATE (WED April 28, 2010): Just came across a nice article on Taylor Swift granting a wish to some college students who wanted a hug from her. Ladies and gentlemen, this is how you do it.
