Taylor Swift was excited to wrap the U.S. leg of her spectacular Red Tour with three shows in her adopted hometown of Nashville, Sept, 19, 20 and 21. Taylor expressed her unbridled joy, and also received some industry plaudits, at an invitation-only pre-show reception at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, Thursday night (Sept. 19).
Taylor was presented with a variety of plaques, including one marking 6 million sales of her album Red and another for her No. 1 single “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” Honors also came from overseas as David Joseph, CEO of Universal Music Group UK, gave Taylor a plaque for her sales achievements in the UK. Taylor’s single “Begin Again” sold 1 million downloads, while Red exceeded sales of 4 million copies. “I didn’t know it was that many,” an astonished Taylor noted. “This is so awesome.”
