Naturally, the Staples Center wanted to celebrate T.Swizzle's popularity, and on Tuesday, Aug. 20, the 23-year-old country-pop star was honored with a commemorative plaque and an inscribed silver wrist cuff.
She also shared some of her success with a group of 20 college students taking part in the Recording Academy's GrammyU program, all of whom were invited to sit in on her sound check and get a backstage tour in advance of Tuesday night's show. "It's been fun having you guys here for sound check! Usually that's just something we do every day, but having you here made it a little bit more special," she said. "It's been so exciting to show you what we do, and hear from your perspective the things you're curious about."
