Another example of his musical passion leading him down a different path came about when Taylor Swift stumbled upon Carney’s ‘Love Me Chase Me’ promo.
“I don’t know how that happened, but she said, ‘That guy would be really good for my video.’ I was happy to do it!”
Ms. Swift later invited Carney to accompany her to the 2013 VMAs. “At one point she went, ‘Be careful or else they’re going to think we’re dating!’ I don’t think anyone would really have thought that. She’s a very lovely girl. I’m not someone who necessarily wants all of that attention. I wasn’t worried about that. I’ve had the opportunity to work with some really talented heavyweights in the music industry and I try to learn as much as I can.” x
