“Man, Howard, it was off the chain,” Smith told Stern. “I loved it. I couldn’t believe how much I loved it.”
Kelce, on the other hand, was a devoted Swiftie well before attending one of her concerts.
Last year, he told his brother during an episode of their New Heights podcast that he tried to connect with the “Cruel Summer” singer by giving her a friendship bracelet he’d made for her at one of her shows at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. But he was unsuccessful.
“I was disappointed that she doesn’t talk before or after her shows because she has to save her voice for the 44 songs that she sings,” he said. “So I was a little butt-hurt I didn’t get to hand her one of the bracelets I made for her.”
Apparently, word got back to Swift that he mentioned this on his podcast, and it may have sparked their romance.
“This all started when Travis very adorably put me on blast on his podcast, which I thought was metal as hell,” Swift told Time magazine in December. “We started hanging out right after that. So we had a significant amount of time that no one knew, which I’m grateful for, because we got to know each other.”
