Taylor Swift’s music has delved into multiple genres over the years. Between that, her songwriting ability, and her desire to control her own business, she has become an inspiration to all her fans, specifically to young girls and to any artist wanting to follow in similar footsteps.
Taylor has also famously dated some of the biggest celebrities (one of them being Harry Styles, which was one relationship fans just adored), and they’ve inspired some of her most famous works. Taylor also dated Joe Alwyn who inspired many of her best love songs and since breaking up, will likely be the inspiration for songs in the future.

However, once it came to light that the two had gone their separate ways, songs that Taylor wrote took on a new meaning to fans. They recognized that songs on ‘Fearless’, ‘Red’, and ‘Speak Now’ were less about Taylor’s love life and more about what happened between her parents instead.

They even leaned on one another when they were both diagnosed with cancer over the years.These days, Scott and Andrea can be seen at ‘The Eras Tour’ singing along to Taylor’s songs, and interacting with fans.

Andrea and Scott Swift got married on February 20th, 1989, and raised two wonderful children, Taylor Swift (born on December 13th, 1989), and Austin Swift (born on March 11th, 1992). Andrea and Scott were together for more than two decades before starting to have struggles in their relationship which ultimately led to their divorce in 2011. Despite the separation, however, it is no secret that they have shown a lot of love and support over the past decade toward their daughter and her music career. This was all happening while Taylor was at the peak of her career and was beginning to become the singing sensation, we all know her as now.When Taylor was preparing to go on her Fearless concert tour, her parents were going through their separation and divorce. One can only imagine how Taylor must have been feeling while on the tour, thinking it was her fault when it wouldn’t have been.
It was Taylor’s mom Andrea who accompanied Taylor on her Fearless tour, leaving Taylor’s dad Scott behind. The distance put a lot of strain on Andrea and Scott’s marriage, especially considering they were already having relationship trouble. Scott came out to support Taylor at some of her shows to watch her perform and hand out guitar picks to fans in the audience. However, from the get-go, Scott has always been less involved when it comes to her career in comparison to Andrea.
Andrea did not just accompany Taylor throughout her entire Fearless tour but also joined her in many of her other tours as well. Andrea has also been seen being Taylor’s plus one at many awards and Scott has been absent at most of them. Back in 2019 at the American Music Awards when Taylor won Artist of the Decade both of Taylor’s parents were there to support their daughter and watch her perform and accept the award with a memorable acceptance speech.
