Do You Remember When Taylor Swift Played Evansville’s Roberts Stadium?
Swifty for Life
I have written about my love for Taylor Swift many times. I am proud to say that I have been a certified SWIFTY since 2007. It makes me so happy that the entire world is aware that she is the real deal superstar, boss, friend, and mastermind.
Evansville, Indiana - Taylor Swift's Chosen City
Some of the biggest performers have chosen to kick off their tour in Evansville. I'm sure they all have different reasons why our city was chosen, but Taylor Swift was very specific when she began her 2009 Fearless Tour at Roberts Stadium.

Taylor Swift Day - Evansville, Indiana
My fellow SWIFTYS, did you know that we actually have an official Taylor Swift Day in Evansville? Our T-Swift holiday is on April 23. Oh yes, and she has a key to our city! So, basically, we need to rally up the Evansville SWIFTYS and invite Taylor back for a visit!

Let's Go Back to the Beginning
I had the amazing opportunity to meet Taylor Swift way back in 2007. She was just starting out and visiting radio stations to do interviews and sing a song or two. Taylor was super sweet, talented, and very smart even as a teenager.
Taylor Swift made me a card and sent it to the radio station that I worked at in 2007. This is one of my most prized possessions - Obviously!
From Walmart Performances to Sold-Out Stadiums
It's funny to even think about this, but in 2007 Taylor Swift did a small Walmart tour! Yes, I was there, and there are videos (Poor quality, it was 17 years ago). Taylor played the Nicholasville, Kentucky Walmart in April of 2007. Can you imagine the sold-out crowds from the Eras Tour packed into a Walmart? That would be chaos.
