Gorgeous pic, Griz! SO cute. He really has top notch billing at the link and another great pic:-)

Even more hilarious was the google alert of a gay man who attested to his surprise, Taylor's hawtness in person at Talledega...

LOL woo - I saw that alert!! Loved seeing that "all kinds of hot" comment and that he had a 'nice chest'. Taylor obviously attracts them from 'both sides'.

When you're hot your hot, I guess!

Wonder if Taylor will be invited on stage with EW&F? He did open for them last summer. Who knows? Stranger things have happened. An he can "groove" just as well as them IMO.

I just read another article that said the "A-List" of people attending the gala. Of course our "A-List man" was there. Taylor is right on the path he wants to be.
