Berks County’s Taylor Swift says ‘Go Birds’!
As we all know, Taylor Swift is from our region.
If you don’t know, she was born in December 13, 1989 in West Reading PA. That’s ‘Go Birds’ territory!
When Taylor was 11, she sang “The Star-Spangled Banner” at a Philadelphia 76ers game.
The story goes that about a year later Berks County’s Taylor Swift picked up a guitar and started writing songs. When she was 13, her family sold the farm and moved to Henderson, TN, about 20 miles from Nashville, to launch her music career.
Her first hit was about someone else with Philadelphia region roots! The song was ‘Tim McGraw”, who’s late Dad, Phillies pitching great, Tug McGraw–lived in Media PA.
It’s been more than documented that Taylor is a Philadelphia spots fan!
At Sunday night’s Grammy Awards, Taylor walked up the red carpet with her friend Charlie Mack, Mr. Philadelphia who was “Eagled Up”! I believe that was Taylor’s way of saying ‘Go Birds’ from the red carpet!
I’m am longtime Eagles fan going back to the 1970’s. I love Charlie’s choice of the classic Eagles logo and the kelly green jacket!
When Taylor played at the Eagles home of Lincoln Financial Field in 2018, she spent some time with Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie. She returns to the the Linc on May 13, 2023.
Back in November 2022, the fan Twitter account, Eagles Nation gave us even more proof and a reminder that Taylor says ‘Go Birds’!

While I can’t find any written, audio or video evidence of Berks County’s Taylor Swift saying ‘Go Birds’, I think her actions speak louder than words!
