Taylor Swift knows Ed Kelce will be the first to buy “1989 (Taylor’s Version)” on Friday.
Travis Kelce’s father admitted that he used YouTube to learn more about Swift and was fascinated by a number of things about the “Cruel Summer” singer.
He told “Entertainment Tonight” that in reviewing his history with Swift, he even purchased her re-recorded albums after initially purchasing the back catalogs without knowing about the issues with Scooter Braun.
After meeting Swift several times, Ed said, “She’s very down to earth, very genuine. She doesn’t put on airs or anything like that… The ‘girl next door’ is an overused term, but it really is.”

Swift has since gone on a re-recording spree and recently announced “1989 (Taylor version)” will be released on October 27.
