OFFSTAGE: Taylor Swift Sails on Nantucket Sound

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

Taylor Swift spent the Fourth of July hanging out with the Kennedy clan — and with Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s son Patrick, in particular. They were all at the family’s Cape Cod compound in Hyannis Port, Mass., this week, and according to People magazine , Swift and the young Schwarzenegger took a walk on the beach. Which could mean something — or it could mean nothing at all. But it sounds like the group had the most fun sailing on Nantucket Sound and then riding around in a golf cart that Ethel Kennedy was driving. Patrick took to Twitter on Independence Day to say, “Had such an amazing day. Best 4th of July I could ask for. Hope everyone had a great day!” In addition to being the son of celebrated parents and grandparents, his Twitter bio says he is a student, entrepreneur, aspiring actor, fitness and health lover, and he is also the fond of a clothing line that uses fashion to create awareness of global issues.
