She has quite the big weekend ahead of her, and Taylor Swift kicked things off by making an appearance at the Westwood One Remotes room in Las Vegas on Friday (March 30).

Held as part of the 47th Annual Academy Of Country Music Awards festivities, the "Mean" singer joined up with fellow country star Dierks Bentley with the pair offering up an interview to 99.5 WYCD radio station.

During the course of her hectic Friday, Miss Swift was also spotted grabbing dinner at Il Pastaio restaurant while still clad in a bright yellow and white dress with a pair of red heels.

As for the next two days, Taylor will be attending the ACM Awards on Sunday night (April 1) while she's also set to be doted with the Big Help Award during Saturday night's Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards.

Making the occasion extra-special, the 22-year-old will be presented with the honor by First Lady Michelle Obama.

Chosen as the recipient thanks to her philanthropic endeavors - which includes her work with U.S. tornado and flood survivors - Nickelodeon Executive Vice President, Marva Smalls, said of the selection: “Taylor’s dedication to helping others has encouraged her fan base to do the same, and this is the very core of what The Big Help is, inspiring others through action. We are honored that First Lady Michelle Obama, a past recipient of The Big Help Award will be presenting this formidable and inspiring artist with this much deserved honor.”
