Setting sales records isn’t the only way reigning queen of pop, country and pop-country Taylor Swift is managing to follow in Garth Brooks’ footsteps. Like the unfenced wind-roper — who raised more than $5 million in aid to Middle Tennessee flood victims with a nine-show Bridgestone Arena takeover last December — Swift is throwing a little charitable soiree at The ‘Stone of her own; benefiting Southerners affected by the region’s recent storm of tornadoes. Deductive reasoning dictates that Swift is currently holding dress rehearsals at the arena in preparation for her Speak Now World Tour — the U.S. leg of which kicks off next week in Omaha. She’s making the last of those rehearsals public, opening the proceedings to 13,000 fans, with all proceeds going towards tornado relief. It’s both a worthy cause and a relief to tour-proper ticketless fans. Swift has already sold out a two-night stand planned for the arena when the caravan returns to town in September. Additionally, the singer has just signed on as the closing night headliner to this year’s CMA Festival, which will see her take the stage at LP Field on June 12. It’s always good to see local artists build up their draw, right? Taylor Swift — you fuckin’ go, girl.
