Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably noticed that Taylor Swift was everywhere in 2023. From her economy-boosting ERAS Tour (both live and in theaters) to her budding romance with Kansas City Chiefs player Travis Kelce, the singer is in the press multiple times a day and her songs are constantly on people’s lips and in their heads.
One single mom, Ginny Blair, also credits Swift with giving her and her 9-year-old daughter the best year together that they’ve ever had. She felt so strongly about it that she made a TikTok video thanking Swift, and her mind was totally blown when the 34-year-old superstar singer responded.

“Taylor commenting made my daughter and I’s Christmas complete,” Blair told TODAY.com.
In her original TikTok, Blair said, “Hey Taylor … I’ve been a fan forever. We’re the same age, so I grew up with you. You, like, sang about my life growing up,” she said. And now, I have a 9-year-old daughter who is everything. And she looks up to you for everything, and your song ‘Mean’ is getting her through the bullies at school.”
A tearful Blair went on to say that her daughter is now the “#1 Swiftie” in their household, and that she recently told her mom “I’ve had more fun with you this year than ever before.”
“And I know why,” Blair continued, crediting Swift, “It’s because we have had so much fun surrounding you.”
She then went on to explain that not only had they made epic memories together attending Swift’s ERAS Tour, but that they also watched the ERAS Tour movie together in the theater a whopping five times.
“We got the buckets, and we got the merch, and we have had so much fun,” she said. “And then just the other night we rented the movie and ordered a pizza and lounged and had a movie night watching ‘The Eras Tour.’”
Blair went on to tell Swift what her daughter’s sentiments mean to her as a mom.
“For my daughter to sit there and be like, ‘I’ve had the best year with you’ … I am a single mom. I work every day. That means so much to me,” she said tearfully.
Blair also said she knows Taylor gets a lot of flack and criticism from people who aren’t fans, and so she wanted her to get some special encouragement about the “impact” she has on people “behind the scenes.”
