OFFSTAGE: Relive the Taylor Swift Album Launch Mayhem

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

Remember Taylor Swift‘s much-anticipated Speak Now album launch in October when all those contest winners had the dream-come-true chance to travel with Swift while she jetted around the country promoting it? It was awesome. And I have proof. You can see what those lucky winners saw and shot on the little Sony Bloggie Touch video cameras they had to document it all. So Kat from Sydney, Audrey from San Diego, Brianna from Chicago, Melissa from New Jersey, Becky from New Zealand and Kristina from Omaha and so many more all spent time watching Swift do her thing — singing, charming and appreciating fans from coast to coast and even answering a few questions along the way. When one Bloggie journalist asked her if she had any topics that were off limits, Swift admitted, “Is there anything I wouldn’t sing about? Well, I thought so before this album.”
