Taylor Swift, engagement advisor


Jason “The 300 lb Cowboy” Raithel of WYCD-FM Grand Rapids is now an engaged man. Taylor Swift saw to it that his engagement to long time girlfriend Kelli Ann Siwik was done properly backstage after Swift’s July 28th “Speak Now” concert tour in Grand Rapids.

Here’s the back story: Back in February of 2010, when Taylor Swift’s “Fearless Tour” was in Michigan, Jason and Kelli were backstage before the concert and Andrea Swift, Taylor’s mom, said to them, “Next time I see you two, you’d better be engaged!” So when Taylor and her mom approached Jason and Kelli backstage Thursday, Jason told Taylor and her mom “The last time we saw you, you told us we’d better be engaged the next time you saw us.” Then he reached into his pocket, pulled out a ring and Taylor told Jason to “get down on your knee!” Jason joked that he might not be able to get back up.

It is a real love story and Kelli said yes to the WYCD morning host!
