While she may be a full-blown pop star these days, Taylor Swift will always remain in our hearts for her start as a country singer.
Swift recently relived her country days by paying a visit to the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, the venue where she was discovered and signed by Scott Borchetta. The intimate performance included a few songs and storytelling by the artist, but more notably, on the setlist was a performance of Little Big Town's “Better Man", which she actually wrote and won a CMA award for.
As much as we love Taylor and her transition into a more pop style of music, there's no denying that she's still a country girl at heart, and her rendition of “Better Man" proves it! Here's to hoping she releases an acoustic album full of country hits in the near future because we definitely need it!!
Be sure to catch Swift on her Reputation Tour later this year, which runs from May to November. Tickets are available here. With 51 shows this run, we're definitely hoping “Better Man" makes it to the setlist!
Speaking of Taylor Swift and covers, Kelsea Ballerini recently shared an Instagram video in which she sings Swift's latest single “Delicate" and all we can say is: WOW! Complete with an acoustic guitar, Ballerini uploaded the one minute clip of the cover and has us begging to hear the full version!
Even Swift herself approved of the cover, speaking nothing but praises for her friend and fellow artist. She commented: “KELSEA THIS IS angelic 💕 wonderful 💕 exquisite 💕 lovely 💕 excellent 💕" (and people might be freaking out a bit to know they're still friends). Now, all we need now is a collaboration between these two ladies and our lives will be complete!
Ballerini will hit the road this summer as a supporting act on Keith Urban's GRAFFITI U Tour, and tickets are available here.
