BIG MACHINE RECORDS artist TAYLOR SWIFT had to postpone her concert in LOUISVILLE, KY at the YUM CENTER on SATURDAY, JUNE 30th, due to an illness. The concert will be rescheduled for TUESDAY, OCTOBER 11th but COX MEDIA GROUP Country WQNU (NEW COUNTRY Q-103.1)/LOUISVILLE came to the rescue for fans, with morning show personality KRIS DANIELS hosting a 90-minute "Get Well Soon, TAYLOR" party on the air. The station played nothing but SWIFT songs and allowed listeners to call in, vent and offer best wishes to SWIFT.
“It was great to be able to help people through the shock of it all,” DANIELS said. “There were lots of upset and disappointed fans in the area who needed to talk through it. In the end, almost everyone realized this was in TAYLOR’s best interest, so it just became a celebration of the girl and her music.”
