Call it what you will, but the Taylor Swift invasion of Nashville has begun.

The atmosphere of lavender is genuine. For Friday’s concert, the John Seigenthaler Pedestrian Bridge was illuminated in purple. Swifties have associated the color purple with the imminent announcement of the release of her re-recorded 2010 album Speak Now (Taylor’s Version). Would it be possible in Nashville? Fans appear to agree.
