Taylor Swift shows off her date, Kevin McGuire, at the 2013 Academy of Country Music Awards held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sunday night (April 7) in Las Vegas.
The 23-year-old country singer invited Kevin, a cancer survivor, to last yearâ€™s show after he asked her to be his prom date. Unfortunately, his health was bad at the time and he couldnâ€™t make it, so this year the Academy flew his entire family to Vegas for the show!
Over the weekend, Taylor met up with the family to hang out and spend some time together.
“So the big new is: WE LEAVE SATURDAY FOR THE ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS! The president of the award show-Mr. Romeo-has been in touch with our family checking on Kevin since his transplant, and invited us a couple months ago! As soon as we land in Vegas we are meeting up with TAYLOR SWIFT!” Kevin‘s sister, Victoria, wrote on Facebook.
She added, “It is great how this all worked out, it truly came full circle; Kevin is fully healthy this year and will be able to enjoy everything! Thank you for being apart of our journey!”
