Taylor Swift is a force that keeps on giving. Just a few weeks after surprising fans with her eighth studio album Folklore, the music sensation has now shipped its signed CDs to Indie Record stores across the country.
Several record stores took to Twitter after receiving surprise packages of signed Taylor Swift albums. What’s amazing is that they arrived free of charge.
In a conversation with Billboard, Angie Roloff, owner of Strictly Discs in Madison said, “Yesterday, I got an email from our Universal rep that we were one of the stores that had been chosen to receive 30 autographed Taylor Swift CDs. “We weren’t permitted to talk about it until the CDs were in hand, and then we could post socially about it so folks could come and find us. And the other requirement was it has to be just local customers, not just shipping them to people outside of our immediate area. So today has been the day of Taylor Swift frenzy, which was actually quite fun.”
He later mentioned that the signed CDs were gone “for hours,” and after posting about it around 11 a.m., “all 30 were gone by about 11:40. You realize just how popular she is when you see something like that,” he further added.

Whatever the situation, after all these years Taylor Swift still manages to leave her fans a tad bit happier every time she does something. Not an understatement to say she’s ‘The 1″.
