Taylor Swift is the ultimate girl next door, so what guy wouldn’t want a shot with her? No one wanted it more than Kevin McGuire, an 18-year-old cancer patient who wanted to take Taylor to his senior prom.
The gorgeous country star sings along to her guitar playing, and every time she is acknowledged, her humbling reaction never fails to show. She is constantly giving shout-outs to fans and is known to stay long hours at meet and greets to get through everyone.
As many generous things as she does on a regular basis, Ms. Swift really topped herself this time. Kevin’s older sister started a Facebook event called “Taylor Swift Take Kevin McGuire to Prom!” The event grew much larger than anticipated, and the ultimate goal of reaching Taylor was a success.
Due to her tight schedule, Taylor unfortunately couldn’t make it to Kevin’s prom, but she gave him an even better offer by asking him to be her date to the ACM Awards!
She posted a personalized note to Kevin on her Facebook:
“Kevin, I##Q##m so sorry but I won##Q##t be able to make it to your prom. But I was wondering, the ACM Awards are coming up.. Would you be my date?
We’re assuming the answer could be nothing but yes! Go Kevin!
