Taylor Swift’s Bench: A bench for Taylor Swift … where she’s never sat

A bench for Taylor Swift in Centennial Park in Nashville, Tennessee

Here’s a photo of “a bench for Taylor Swift,” one of the odder features of the popular Centennial Park in Nashville.

The bench was unveiled a year ago by then-Mayor John Cooper just before her “Eras” tour shows in Bridgestone Arena.

But there’s no reports that Swift’s butt has ever used her bench. Nonetheless, it attracts “Swifties” for photos. It’s a fan destination, a tourist attraction and a cultural icon.

The bench has a small plaque that reads: “For Taylor Swift, A bench for you to read on at Centennial Park. Welcome home, Nashville.”

The bench plaque is a reference to the lyric “Green was the color of the grass, Where I used to read at Centennial Park” in the song “Invisible String.”

Nice setting, though.
