Mama Andrea, 57, is no stranger to longtime Swifties. As Taylor pointed out, her mother is a constant presence on the road. In 2009, the then 19-year-old singer released the sweet music video for “The Best Day,” a track off Fearless that was dedicated to Andrea.

Swift’s 1989 World Tour is due to kick off on May 5 in Tokyo, Japan. The U.S. leg begins on May 20 in Louisiana.
