Sugarland released their latest single, “Babe,” on Friday (April 20) and the song’s writer, Taylor Swift, immediately took to social media to thank fans for their kind words. Because that’s what Taylor Swift does.
The new single, written by Taylor and Train’s Pat Monahan, is the second song Taylor has offered to country music since becoming the world’s biggest pop star. The first was “Better Man” recorded by Little Big Town, which went to No.1 on the country charts. The 28-year-old, who’s roots are in country, took to Instagram to say a little something about the new shared tune.
“Hey guys, I just wanted to say thank you so much all the nice things you’ve been saying about ‘Babe,'” Taylor said. “It’s a song that I wrote with Pat Monahan when I was making the Red album. I’m so happy that it gets it’s own life. I’m so happy that Sugarland wanted to record it and has done such a great job with it. And I’m so stoke to sing on it too. So, just wanted to say thanks. 18 days til tour and I can’t wait to see you.”
Taylor’s reputation Tour, named after her blockbuster album, kicks off May 8 in Glendale, Arizona. Joining the superstar on tour will be Charli XCX and Camilla Cabello.
