Scott Kingsley Swift
Taylor has said multiple times that she’s always admired her father’s passion for his work. At eight, while friends reported wanting to grow up and become astronauts and ballerinas, she was convinced she wanted to be a financial adviser, like her dad. She recalled in an interview:
Scott is extremely proud of his daughter’s achievements. He is known for always handing out guitar picks to fans and photoboming pictures. In her song “The Best Day,” Taylor mentions her father, saying “I have an excellent father; his strength is making me stronger.” Scott has also appeared in a few music videos, like “Christmas Tree Farm” or “I’m Only Me When I’m With You“. He’s further featured in Taylor’s 2020 documentary Miss Americana.
