Taylor Swift has come back to her hometown in a big way. About ten semi-trucks with the Taylor Swift tour line the streets of downtown beginning Thursday and continuing through Saturday.
Swift will wrap up the North American part of her "Red Tour" with her final hometown concert Saturday evening.
With tens of thousands of fans descending on the streets of Nashville, the cost of parking at area lots is running as high as $25. "It's kind of ridiculous because they take advantage of that. It's normally $5 or $10 dollars at any other event. Even hockey games, it's $15 or $20," said Christa Evans from Nashville."We are from a little town, and the most traffic you have is five cars at a red light. Here you're stuck for an hour so that is like nothing we have at all," said Haley Dison, a Taylor Swift fan.Swift sold 1.2 million copies of her Red Album in the first week of its release.Luke Bryan made a guest appearance during Thursday's concert, singing "I Don't Want this Night to End" with Swift.Each night Swift welcomes a surprise guest performer to sing at her show."Not only is this my hometown, this is one of the craziest crowds that we play, so it just made sense[to play three nights], so I am just thrilled," Swift said. Swift last played Nashville in 2011.Last week, the 23-year-old singer was nominated for six CMA Awards.
