Taylor Swift will have to attend Sunday night's Academy of Country Music Awards solo after her date with a teenage cancer suffered was cancelled.
The country star offered to take Kevin McGuire, who is battling leukemia, to the glitzy ceremony in Las Vegas after his sister urged Swift to be his school prom date.
However, McGuire will now have to miss his big night after he was hospitalized on Friday.
Swift revealed the sad news in a post on her Twitter.com page, insisting she is keen to make it up to him.
She writes, "Just talked to Kevin McGuire. He's not well enough to join me at the ACMs. Please keep him in your thoughts. I'll make it up to you, Kevin!"
