Taylor Swift Salutes Those Who Help Drive Her Success
But it was her four No. 1hits from the multi-platinum 'Fearless' album -- 'Should've Said No,' 'Love Story,' 'White Horse' and 'You Belong With Me' -- that were on the superstar's mind as she celebrated earlier this week in Nashville with a select group of those who helped make it all happen.
"I just hope you know how happy you've made me," she said to the crowd of supporters, including executives from her record label, Big Machine, her producer Nathan Chapman and several others who've helped her achieve her phenomenal success. "I never expected I would get to stand up at awards shows as much as I have over the last year for this album. I'm so happy I was allowed to make the album I made. And, I'm proud of the people this happened to along with me. This was not wasted on us. We all appreciate it so much. We've had a lot change for us."
Poking fun at the multimillion dollar empire she has created, Taylor also addressed how her increasing fame and fortune has affected other people. "I've seen a lot of you get new cars," she joked, "but other than that, you're the same people I've always known."
