Taylor Swift is a multiple nominee at this Sunday’s 47th Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas but that’s not why she’s excited to be going this year. Swift has a very special reason why she’s looking forward to the big night. She told Dial-Global’s Country Countdown USA“You know for me like I’m probably more excited for this ACMs than I have been you know in a very long time. I’ve always been excited but having someone to sit next to is gonna be really wonderful and I’m just really, really happy about the way that this all came together with Kevin and… You know for those of you who don’t know he’s been battling leukemia for a while and his sister put up this Facebook page because she thinks he’s amazing and she’ so proud of the way he’s been handling his illness. It got so many hits on Facebook I was just thinking of how we could possibly respond to this, how we could… because she wanted me to go to his prom and I couldn’t make it to his prom and so I just posted on his Facebook and asked him if he could go to the ACMs with me and so he’s gonna go with me.”
