Taylor Swift’s dad sells her T’shirts at her shows.The 21-year-old country singer’s father Scott is her biggest fan and likes to be heavily involved at her concerts to show his support for his famous daughter. Taylor explained: ‘My dad is adorably optimistic, positive, pie-in-the-sky. He thinks every new song I write is my best. He sells T-shirts at my merchandise stands and hands out guitar picks to fans.’ Many fans have met Scott while at Taylor’s shows, and said how friendly he is. One US fan, Emily, told how she met the former stockbroker at a concert in Washington DC. She wrote on a fan site in June this year: ‘ got pit passes and met Scott (Taylor’s dad for anyone unaware) He came out and gave us guitar picks then my friend and I talked to him for a minute or two by the soundbooth during ‘Hey Stephen’. ‘ was so close to hugging Taylor but she had to turn around and go the other way to get back to the actual stage. But I touched her hand at one point during the show. And she looked right at me during ‘Fifteen’ on the moving stage.’
Taylor also told how she takes elements of her mother’s personality into her onstage persona too.
She said: ‘Mom is a planner, an organiser. She’s very strong and practical. She’s the person that’ll tell me if I ever start to change my personality. The balance of the two of them created my personality.’
