Taylor Swift's touching act for family of baseball star in tragedy.

Taylor Swift sent a bouquet of flowers to the family of a teen baseball star who was mysteriously killed four years ago, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal.

 

Grant Solomon’s mother Angie said the ‘massive’ floral arrangement arrived two days after her son’s funeral at the family’s home in Franklin, Tennessee.

Her 18-year-old son was found lying under his truck outside of Ward Performance Institute, a baseball training facility, located at 1357 S Water Ave, in Gallatin, Tennessee, on the morning of July 20, 2020.
Grant was found by his father, Aaron Solomon, who called 911 to report that his son was trapped underneath his pickup truck. He was the only known witness.

The handsome 6ft4 athlete, who was starting his senior year of high school, died shortly after.

The Gallatin Police Department recorded his death as a parking lot accident, and closed the case, but his mother is demanding an investigation, and believes he was a victim of a crime.

Grant met Taylor at a concert in 2013, his mother recalled. The baseball star’s father, a former news anchor turned financial advisor, was working with the singer’s father Scott in Nashville.

After Angie’s son died, hordes of flowers were being delivered to the family home.

Angie said she didn’t pay much attention at the time but remembered that the bouquet was so heavy it had to be carried inside by two people.

‘I’ve never seen one like that. It was a cement rectangle vase. It was so heavy – it took two people to carry it into the house,’ she recalled. ‘They were rare exotic flowers – really beautiful.’

The floral arrangement included white and green hydrangeas, roses, snapdragons, baby’s breath, a long stem willow branch, surrounded by green foliage.

In 2013, Grant was nine when he went to his first Taylor Swift concert that was held at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. Country singer Tim Graw was headlining with Keith Urban on guitar.

Grant was able to get a photo with the singer, who was wearing a white robe. She recalled how excited he was after meeting the songstress.

Angie recalled the bittersweet moment when a young Grant told her: ‘Mom she smelled sooo good.’

‘I thought he would say, “She’s beautiful”, or say something about her hair or red lips, but only how good she smelled,’ she said. ‘His eyes had stars in them. It was so pure, so cute. I will never forget that.’

She said that her late son’s favorite Taylor Swift song was ‘Love Story,’ and after the concert Tim McGraw gave Grant some guitar picks.
