Many of those who were invited were totally shocked at getting the invites and how approachable she was. They were equally thrilled after spending five hours with Taylor at her home and walking away from the experience with a bag a Swift branded merchandise and memories to last a lifetime. For that we make Taylor Swift our Word of the Day inside the VIP at KMXI.COM. Rush on over and get your VIP Club Points now!
