Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour in the United States concluded with a heartwarming gesture that left her crew members in awe. On Monday, as a token of gratitude to the hardworking team, including the tour’s dedicated truck drivers, Swift surprised them with an incredibly generous bonus.

According to Michael Scherkenbach, the CEO of Denver-based Shomotion trucking company, which was one of the two transportation companies involved in the tour, each trucker received a check for a staggering $100,000. This extraordinary amount far surpassed the usual expected bonus, which typically ranges from $5,000 to $10,000. For the nearly 50 members of the combined trucking crews, it was nothing short of life-changing.

Scherkenbach emphasized the challenging nature of their job, as these men and women spend weeks away from their families, working tirelessly to ensure the smooth execution of the tour. The bonus of $100,000 meant that they could now afford significant milestones such as a down payment on a house or funding their children’s college education.
