LINCOLN FINANCIAL Country KYGO/DENVER helped a very special listener get tickets & backstage passes to see BIG MACHINE star TAYLOR SWIFT recently. The listener was Cpl. EVAN STRATTON, who was injured in IRAQ after his convoy was ambushed and a grenade exploded nearby. While he was in the hospital, his sisters SARYN and TALYN started a FACEBOOK page called “TAYLOR SWIFT Help Heal A Wounded Marine,” knowing that TAYLOR was one of his favorite artists.
TAYLOR joined the FACEBOOK group and posted, “You are so amazing.” After months of trying to meet TAYLOR without success, it was KYGO that helped make it happen. EVAN said of their meeting, “"It was pretty sweet. I got to take a picture with her and a signed autograph. She's just as pretty in real life."
