Taylor Swift Asks Fan To Awards Show

Taylor Swift is offering to take a teenage boy to the Academy of Country Music Awards in April as her date because she won’t be able to accept an invitation to his prom.

The sister of Kevin McGuire, who is battling leukemia, reached out to the Love Story singer on Facebook and asked her to be his date to the prom in New Jersey this spring in an effort to bring a smile to the ailing 18-year-old’s face.

However, Swift, who can’t make it, has an even better date planned.

In a post on her Facebook page, she writes, “I’m so sorry but I won’t be able to make it to your prom. But I was wondering, the ACM Awards are coming up. Would you be my date?”
