Stevie Nicks says a Taylor Swift song helped her cry

Stevie Nicks thanks Taylor Swift for helping her mourn her friend.

As the Fleetwood Mac singer paid tribute during her shows to her late friend and bandmate Christine McVie, who died in November, she made special mention of Swift and a particular track from the band’s “Midnights” album. singer at Monday’s concert in Atlanta.

“Thanks to Taylor Swift for doing me a favor, and writing a song called ‘You’re On Your Own, Kid'” Nicks said. “It’s the sadness of what I feel. As long as Chris was, even halfway around the world, we didn’t need to talk to each other on the phone.

“We really weren’t friends on the phone,” she continued. “Then we’d go back to Fleetwood Mac, and we’d walk in and it’d just be like, ‘Little sister, how are you?’ It was like never a minute had passed, never an argument in our entire 47 years – ever.

“So when it was the two of us, we were both alone, kids, we always were,” Nicks continued. “And now I have to learn to be alone, kid, all alone. So you helped me do it. THANKS.”

Nicks and McVie had been close friends for nearly half a century when McVie died aged 79 of a stroke and metastasized cancer. The band posted a heartfelt tribute within hours that described McVie as “one of a kind, special and talented beyond measure”.

Nicks has since been busy with a series of tour dates across the United States. The grieving “Landslide” singer was so touched by Swift’s latest work and the lyrics to “You’re on Your Own, Kid,” however, that she was able to mourn her friend better than ever. music.

“Because there were pages turned with the bridges burned, all you lose is one step you take,” Swift sings in the piece. “So make the friendship bracelets, take the moment and taste it. You have no reason to be afraid, you’re all alone, kid.

In an interview with The New Yorker last year, Nicks recalled a conversation from about 10 years ago in which Perry told him, “Well, there’s, like, the army of Taylor Swift and there’s, like, Katy’s Army, and there’s like… .'”

Nicks continued, “And I was like, ‘That’s just bullshit. You just have to get away from it. Don’t carry that in your mind. “

Nicks’ power is such that, a few years later, Perry sent Swift a literal olive branch.

“Thank you Katy,” Swift allegedly posted on her Instagram Story at the time. “So I just walked into my dressing room and found this olive branch. It means too much to me.

On Monday, Nicks sent the same words to Swift: “Thank you.”
