Camden County teen accepts Taylor Swift’s invitation to awards show

    Camden County teen Kevin McGuire won’t be going to his prom with Taylor Swift, but the country music star has a better offer.

    She wants to take McGuire to the upcoming Academy of Country Music Awards.

    McGuire’s sister, Victoria, began a social media campaign last week to get Swift to the Sterling High School prom with Kevin, who has cancer.


    Swift said she can’t make it to the prom, but invited Kevin to be her awards date via her Facebook page. The Asbury Park Press reports Kevin has every intention of going.
