NASHVILLE, TN - MARCH 26: (EXCLUSIVE ACCESS, SPECIAL RATES APPLY) Kenny Chesney and Taylor Swift perform onstage during Kenny Chesney's The Big Revival 2015 Tour kick-off for a 55 show run through August. The high-energy opening night included 2Ω hours of music, including five songs from his #1 The Big Revival, surprise guests and a leaner, cleaner stage and 2.3 million pixel screen that gave the sold out house the best view theyve ever had of the 8-time Entertainer of the Year at the Bridgestone Arena on March 26, 2015 in Nashville, Tennessee (Photo by Rick Diamond/Getty Images for Kenny Chesney)


She may now be one of the biggest – if not THE biggest – pop star in music these days, but good ole’ Taylor Swift hasn’t forgotten her country roots. 

Last night in Nashville, she made a surprise appearance at Kenny Chesney’s tour kick-off concert! As you can see here in this video posted on YouTube, Taylor joined Kenny on stage for his song ‘Big Star’ and even pulled up a young fan to join them.

Also making cameos at the show? Grace Potter and Uncle Kracker, among others. 

But one of the most buzzed-about guests at the gig? DJ Calvin Harris, who’s been photographed this week hanging around Nashville with Taylor. Fans were posting photos of the two as they watched Kenny’s show together from the audience. 


Perhaps he’ll accompany her next month to the 50th annual Academy of Country Music awards in Dallas? Taylor is being honored along with Garth Brooks, Miranda Lambert, George Strait, Reba McEntire, Brooks and Dunn AND Kenny Chesney with the 50thAnniversary Milestone Award for their achievements in advancing country music. 

So like we said before, she may be a global pop superstar now – but she’ll always have a special place in Nashville and country music.
