Could Taylor Swift Be Joining the Cast of ‘Girls’

49th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards

There is a new Taylor Swift rumor floating around the web and it’s an exciting one!

Rumor has it that Taylor might get cast on Lena Dunham’s HBO show “Girls.”  And sources say it may be more than just a guest star role–she might actually get cast as her own character. According to sources close to both Lena and Taylor who spoke to Yahoo! News, “a guest appearance is in the pipeline, with Lena apparently eager to make the role a more substantial one.”

“Lena’s been trying to persuade Taylor to appear in Girls for ages. Taylor loves the show and has agreed a cameo. Lena would also love her to take on a more permanent role and to pen some music for the show,” an insider revealed to British magazine Grazia.

Taylor has nailed every acting job she has done thus far so I can only imagine how fun this will be!

Krystal Keith

Show Dog-Universal recording artist Krystal Keith has one of the strongest voices in country music and one of the biggest viral wedding hits in recent memory with “Daddy Dance With Me.” Last year’s underground smash is now gaining a resurgence as her label is officially servicing the video to multiple outlets as the bridal season ramps up.

Co-written by Keith for her own wedding as a surprise for her father, superstar Toby Keith, “Daddy Dance With Me” leaked and received airplay last year. Rushing a video release, the clip went on to receive more than 2 million views in a very short time.

In other news, Krystal will be a guest speaker and performer at the California Women’s Conference May 20 in Long Beach. She’ll be featured on the Creative Expressions panel discussing her career and music. Get details at http://californiawomensconference.com/.

Last night SoundExchange launched The SoundExchange Influencers Series to a packed house at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, TN.

Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member and founder of bands Buffalo Springfield and Poco, Richie Furay; 20-time GRAMMY-Award winner and country music superstar Vince Gill; and up-and-coming country/folk music duo, Striking Matches put on a wonderful show filled with excitement, nostalgia and high-energy from the crowd. The artists showcased the value of music from the past, present and future.

Proceeds from the inaugural event will be donated to Belmont University‘s “John Hughey Scholarship in Music and Business” which was established by Vince Gill in honor of his longtime steel guitar player and friend, the late John Hughey.

The artists shared stories about what influenced their music and Richie Furay managed to capture the feelings of each performer when he said, “[It’s] really great to live your dream…because not everyone has the chance to do it.”

Check out photos from the evening HERE.
