On the morning of Sept. 12—the day Taylor brought her Fearless concert tour to Nashville—Austin captured his superstar sib squeezing in a little guitar time at home.

Before the show…

Country Chic

How’s this for a good sign? In the car en route to the arena, Taylor’s hit “You Belong with Me” came on the radio.

Lucky 13

Taylor’s mom, Andrea, draws her lucky number on her hand—a mom-and-daughter tradition before each concert.

Pep Rally

After a grilled cheese dinner (above), Taylor gathers with her band members and dancers for another preshow ritual: forming a motivational circle right before hitting the stage.

Rocking the Crowd

Front and Center

Talk about VIP seating! Austin (a high school honors student!) snapped this close-up shot of his big sis sparkling onstage.

Face Time

Taylor performs part of each concert from the audience and stages impromptu meet-and-greets with fans.
