Taylor Swift Brings Cancer Survivor to ACM Awards 2013!

Taylor Swift poses with cancer survivor Kevin McGuire backstage after her performance at the 2013 Academy of Country Music Awards held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sunday (April 7) in Las Vegas, Nev.

The 23-year-old country singer invited Kevin to last year’s show after he asked her to be his prom date. Unfortunately, his health was bad at the time and he couldn’t make it, so this year the Academy flew his entire family to Vegas for the show!

Over the weekend, Taylor met up with the family to hang out and spend some time together. Then at the big show they met up again in their fancy clothes. Check out all the pics below! More Here! »
