Taylor Swift Has a Weekend Date With College Football

Taylor Swift is tackling a whirlwind schedule, having released her third album, ‘Speak Now,’ earlier this week, and promoting it with dozens of appearances over the course of the last few days. But this weekend, she’ll take a “time-out” for some college football. The superstar will co-host this Saturday’s episode of the Motor Racing Network‘s ‘College Football Country.’ The show, which highlights tailgating, school traditions and pre- and post-game parties, along with spotlighting some of Nashville’s biggest stars, airs October 30, at 8:00 AM (ET).

Taylor has already managed to get the attention of one college football star. Earlier this year, University of Southern California quarterback Matt Barkley professed his feelings for the Grammy winner via his Twitter page. “I wonder what it would take to get @taylorswift13 to come to a game at the Coliseum,” he tweeted. “I kind of want to meet her,” he confirmed later. “I’ve met Will Ferrell. That was sweet. But Taylor Swift would be sweeter.”

Taylor is certainly keeping her bags packed these days, having logged recent appearances on the ‘Today’ show, along with the ‘Late Show With David Letterman‘ and ‘Live! With Regis and Kelly.’ But the 20-year old says sharing the messages behind the songs on her new album is worth it.

“These songs are confessions,” Taylor tells The Boot, “and every single confession on this album is sort of like that moment when you stand up at a wedding and say, ‘Wait!’ And whether it’s saying, ‘Wait, I’m sorry,’ or ‘Wait, what you said really hurt me,’ … or ‘Wait, I secretly love you,’ you’re making confessions and you’re speaking now. The moment will slip by if you don’t say anything.”

Other artists appearing in episodes of College Football Country on Motor Racing Network include Sara Evans, Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban and Reba McEntire.
