Taylor Swift ‘VH1 Storytellers’ Concert Contest Underway
Taylor Swift has announced that she will perform an intimate acoustic concert for a winning college or high school this fall as part of the “VH1 Storytellers” series on VH1. The contest is open to accredited colleges and high schools in the 48 continental U.S. states, and runs today (Aug. 21) through Sept 23. Students can vote for their school and find details of the contest now at www.taylorswiftoncampus.com.
The top five schools with the most votes at the end of the contest will each receive a $10,000 grant for their music department from Taylor and Chegg for Good. A philanthropic program of Chegg, the leading student hub, Chegg for Good inspires students to be a catalyst for change on their campus, in their communities and around the world.
“VH1 Storytellers: Taylor Swift” will air on VH1 on Sunday, Nov. 11 at 6:00 PM ET. The special comes hot on the heels of the release of Red, the singer-songwriter’s fourth studio album. And while the “VH1 Storytellers” series features artists talking about the creative process and the inspirations for their songs, don’t expect her to spill too many specific beans.
During her recent web chat announcing the album’s release, Taylor addressed the first single, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” but would not say just exactly which of her ex-boyfriends inspired the tune.
“I’m trying not to be too cryptic with it, but I’m trying not to give it all away,” she said with a smile.
One Taylor ex, however, insists the song is not about him. Tune in to “VH1 Storytellers” on Nov. 11 to see if any more clues, cryptic or otherwise, will surface.
