Before she was a pop princess, TayTay was all about the country music – and her surprise duet with Little Big Town shows she hasn’t lost any of her country music talents!

She might be a pop princess now, but Taylor Swift’s musical roots lie in country music – and she revisited the genre with a surprise performance with Little Big Town on her 1989 World Tour.

Taylor loves to surprise her fans with guests popping up on her tour, and at a recent concert in Pittsburgh, she brought out the country band to sing their song ‘Pontoon’ together – it’s like the ghost of Taylor past came back on that stage!

Taylor also participated in an impromptu sing song with the band backstage on a song called 'Girl Crush': 

Tay proved she hasn’t lost her country singer side as she joined the band – and it’s no surprise she found it easy, as Swifty started her career as a country singer before moving over to pop.

Taylor’s brilliant performance comes after she was honoured with the 50th Anniversary Milestone Award at the American Country Music Awards – kind of a big deal for an artist that now focuses on pop!

She tweeted after the show:

The performance would have held double significance for Taylor – as well as going back to country, it was also in her hometown of Pennsylvania, which she got pretty excited about:

Seeing the performance above kind of makes us miss Taylor’s country side – maybe there’s another of those albums to come in the future?
