Taylor Swift is, like, the biggest superstar in the world, but she’s still a farm girl at heart! Following the ever glamorous Video Music Awards, Tay shared the most adorable childhood photo, reminiscing about her tractor-riding days!
Taylor Swift, 25, won video of the year at the MTV Video Music Awards on Aug. 30. However, the global superstardom hasn’t made the singer forget her roots. In fact, the day after the big show (after which Tay and her squad rubbed shoulders with Tinseltown’s brightest), Taylor took to the web, tweeting a picture of herself at gal pal Lorde, featuring she and her brother when she was a wee little farm girl! It’s nearly impossible to believe it’s the same woman who now sells out arenas around the world, and yet, we better believe it!

Taylor posted the photo during the afternoon on Aug. 31, clearly still riding the high from the previous evening’s festivities. In the too-cute-for-words pic (literally, as Taylor didn’t so much as caption the post), Taylor sits perched on her papa’s leg, while her little brother, Austin Swift, beams along side her on the other leg.
The picture was without a doubt to mark the full circle moment of the VMAs. In fact, during the show (which we can nearly dub “Taylor’s night” since she won, like, everything), little bro Austin, now 23, was by her side the entire time! From the debut of her “Wildest Dreams” video, to her incredible performance kicking off the show, to her undoubtedly nerve racking introduction of Kanye West, to her ultimate big win, Austin was on hand to bask in his sister’s pride.
Better yet, the brother-sister duo got to keep the party going following the show. Both attended the Republic Records VMA afterparty, spending the evening as the Hollywood royalty they now are. The two sure have come a long way from that tractor in Pennsylvania, but it’s safe to say they won’t soon forget their roots! Check out the full tweet below!
What do you think of Taylor’s blast from the past? Is she still in touch with her past, or is she too forgone at this point?
