Somebody once told me that you truly see who a person is when you tell them something they don’t want to hear. You truly see who someone is when you give them news that they weren’t expecting. And so, to the country music community, when I told you that I had made a pop album, and that I wanted to go and explore other genres, you showed me who you are with the grace that you accepted that with. I will never forget it. I am so happy, so happy that I learned to write songs in a town like Nashville. I am so grateful that I learned what hard work is from my heroes who are all sitting here, and I am so unbelievable proud that I learned to treat people with kindness and respect from country music. I love you so much. And to the fans. I will see you right here in this exact stadium in a few months on the 1989 World Tour. See you soon, I love you.
