ARLINGTON (CBS11) — Sophie Parks of Flower Mound could hardly wait.
She and her mother Pamela won tickets to Taylor Swift’s 1989 World Tour concert at AT&T Stadium Saturday night. They’re among the 250 people the superstar gave tickets to as part of her “Swiftstakes.”
Sophie Parks says she never expected to win in her “Wildest Dreams.”
“It was amazing,” she said. “Last Thanksgiving I got so excited.”
At first, her mother thought it was a scam.
“I was so worried I called the number. I Googled the number,” Pamela Parks said. “And then even months later I was Googling because I didn’t want my daughter to be disappointed. It was so generous of Taylor Swift to do that.”
Even a family of three generations living in three different cities came to Arlington for the concert.
Definitely no “Bad Blood” here.
“This is my sister, and these are my twin daughters and my granddaughter,” Karen Potthoff said. “It’s just such a nice bonding time that we can go out and have a good time and see someone who we like and can enjoy.”
Pamela Parks said her daughter has been a big fan of Swift’s for years.
“She’s been listening to every song since she could listen to her music,” she said.
Sophie Parks agreed.
“It’s unreal,” Sophie Parks said. “It’s amazing.”
