Austin Swift Opens Up About Sister Taylor's Rise to Fame

Austin Swift has shared his thoughts about the early days of his big sister Taylor‘s career and her rise to superstardom.

The 24-year-old actor graduated from Notre Dame last year after studying film and hopes to pursue his acting dreams.

He admits that Taylor‘s level headedness over the years has helped him realize the importance of staying grounded.

“When we were kids, I saw Taylor write songs every day for years when there was no one to play them to,” Austin told People.

Austin went on to reveal that when he was in middle school, the siblings spent their spring break in Nashville, where he remembers “watching her go door-to-door dropping off demo CD’s at labels that never called.”

“[I] was there when she was performing at karaoke contests and in the corners of parties with the same enthusiasm she now plays to stadiums full of her fans,” he added. “Having seen that example, how much goes in, how long it took … That’s always going to be bedrock for who I am and who I want to be.”

Austin also opened up about their mother Andrea‘s cancer diagnosis.

“An ocean of people rose up around me to offer support and open up about their own experiences,” he shared. “People were there for me and it transformed what could have been a very lonely, impossible time. I’ll never forget that.”
