Taylor Swift Shines in Atlanta

Amazing. The girl is just 19! She played to a sold-out Phillips Arena Saturday night in Atlanta before Keith Urban. She sang "Love Story," "Our Song" and "Teardrops on My Guitar." Her goal was to utilize technology and she did a great job with this.

The color, videos and three enormous screens really added to the show. My favorite part was at the end of "You should have said no" when Taylor was in a bright red sequined dress and was dancing as they filmed parts of her three times on the big screens. The woman played piano, guitar, bass and managed an incredible duet on some out-of-this-world tin can drums.

Yes, Keith Urban was there and he did an amazing job, but Taylor's age really stands out. As a parent she strikes me as an example to the kids to take piano, guitar or voice lessons and practice! My son likes to say that "Everyone has equal ability to make tons of money." With a little practice you never know what might happen.

We sang Toby Keith's "I want to Talk about me" the whole way home because we didn't have a Taylor CD in the car. She'll be back in Atlanta on Sept. 3rd. Tickets go on sale on June 19th. Don't miss it.
